[QUOTE="BKHpondcritters, post: 454536, member: 11074"] We have a Briggs & Stratton propane stand by generator. It isn't quite 'whole house' but it keeps the essentials going during an outage. It kicks on automatically 30 seconds after power goes out & runs the well pump, microwave oven outlet, refrigerator, downstairs freezer, hot water heater, outlets in the master bedroom, outlets for computer & phone lines, the garage (obviously a guy installed it! lol) and (most importantly) the pond pumps! It unfortunately isn't large enough to power the electric heat pump (much higher price tag for that unit) but we can get by running a space heater & keeping the fireplace blazing, if necessary. PS - Like poconojoe's experience with the Generac, our circuit board was bad early on (actually right out of the box! we discovered during the first power outage when it didn't run) But we had no problem finding a repair tech, it was fully covered under warranty & once replaced it's worked flawlessly for over 11 years now.
