This features an AC Rated Output of 6,000 running watts when using a natural gas, and 7,000 watts when utilizing liquid propane. The unit is rated for a maximum continuous load current of 25 amps on natural gas, and 29.2 on liquid propane. The generator can operate for multiple hours at a time, but is recommend stopping the unit and providing maintenance checks prior to each use, and after every 24 hours of continuous use. Please note that this unit is not manufactured to be utilized as prime power; doing so will void the product’s warranty. The liquid-cooled automatic standby generators range anywhere from 22-150kw.

The pad is approximately 26in x 32in. The battery is not included. It uses a 26R wet cell battery. The generator will run an automatic exercise cycle on a weekly basis. This will keep the battery charged and everything in working order.

Generac’s 7kW CorePower automatic standby generator can cover a wide range of household appliances and items, however the exact items it can cover will vary for each application. The 7kW unit is rated for a continuous output of 7,000 watts when utilizing liquid propane, and 6,000 watts when utilizing natural gas, with a rated amperage of 29.2 amps at 240 volts when operating on propane, and 25 Amps at 240 volts when operating on natural gas. We recommend ensuring that all of the items you intend to run will not exceed this rating.

The loads required in a house will vary, and are not determined by the square footage of the home, but are determined by the items you deem necessary to run in an outage situation. To properly determine the correct generator for your needs, we recommend working with your local certified installer or local certified electrician, as they will be able to determine the correct size generator to meet your needs.

Question

What is Core Power spacing to a wall?

Apparently the Generac Core Power unit must be 5 feet from a combustible wall. The new installation guidelines for all larger similar generators allow the units to be as close as 18 inches. Why is this? Is it because of the composite rather than steel case? Or does the 18 inches now apply to the Core Power also?
Thanks!

Staff Answer
Generac’s 7kW Core Power generators’ minimum clearance guidelines require that the unit be installed at least 60 inches from any windows, wall openings, or combustible surface. A 36 inch spacing is required if the surface has a fire resistant rating of at least one hour per NFPA 37. Clearance from the ends of the generator should be a minimum of 36 inches, depending on the material’s fire rating located near the unit. This spacing would include shrubs, trees, and any kind of vegetation. Clearance at the top should be a minimum of 60 inches from any structure, overhang, or projections from the wall. The generator should not be placed under a deck or other structure that is closed in and would limit or contain air flow. Further information on proper installation can be found in the installation guidelines. We also recommend contacting your local inspector, as state and local codes may vary, and will supersede manufacturer recommendations for installation near a structure.

Please note that prior models or other series units may not meet these exceptions. Utilizing the unit’s model or serial number to locate the owner’s manual or installation guidelines will ensure that the correct distances are followed. As for the closer placement that larger generators are afforded, this is due in part to the fact that their enclosures may have a one hour fire rating, meaning they can be installed closer to a surface than a Core Power unit, which does not feature a one-hour fire rated enclosure. If you are interested in other models to see what their installation distances are, please contact Generac directly.
