TOP What is the decibel level of Troy-Bilt generators? Because there is no industry standard on how to rate generators, Troy-Bilt does not offer any decibel level ratings. TOP Can I vent exhaust out of an enclosed area? NO. Carbon monoxide gases produced by the engine can be deadly. Troy-Bilt Products are designed to be run outside where there is plenty of ventilation. Never run these units inside a home or enclosed area. TOP Are larger mufflers available? No. A muffler that has not been tested could actually increase the exhaust temperature causing engine damage, possibly voiding the warranty. TOP Which generator should I buy? There are several factors to consider when selecting a generator, such as wattage, features and price. Go to our Determine your Wattage page for help in selecting the right model for you. TOP What size generator do I need to run electric items in my house during a power outage? Most average homes of 1200 to 3000 sq. ft. can use a 4000-7000 watt generator. The most common items that need emergency power during a blackout would be the furnace blower motor, refrigerator, freezer, lights, TV, sump pump, and water pumps. TOP How do you determine the wattage requirements of a specific tool or appliance? Electrical items generally state the related amperage (and sometimes wattage) on the data plate. If amps are shown, simply multiply amps times volts to get wattage. Example: A circular saw shows on its nameplate that it requires 9 amps at 120 volts. by multiplying 9 amps by 120 volts you discover that this saw requires 1080 watts for normal operation. TOP What's the difference between running (rated) and starting (surge) watts? The running (rated) watts of a generator is the amount of power the unit can produce continuously, while the starting (surge) wattage is the power that the generator can produce for short periods of time. The short burst of power needed to start a motor-driven item is a good example of starting wattage. TOP Does motor starting require different wattage? Induction motors require larger amounts of electricity for initial start-up than when they are running.
