Honeywell Backup Generator Question
My Costco has this generator on sale right now & I wanted to get your opinions on if it will fit my needs:
Need for 2 occupants in 3k Sq. ft house - 95% electric except gas stove & gas fireplace - (Sub freezing temps possible):
1) Heat Pump+Air Handler
2) Tankless Water heater (need to keep unfrozen)
3) Microwave (240v) or Toaster Oven
5) A least 1 TV
6) Few to all Lights
7) Computer+Router Modem
Is the 17KW enough to handle this load requirement?
Is the 17KW more suitable for a limited amount of circuits like above vs. whole house backup?
I'm budgeting $3500 for the Unit & 2500 for gas & electric retrofit.
Current location of HVAC outdoor unit, Tankless + kitchen are all on same side of house.
Appreciate any feedback.
