Wiring a Furnace for Emergency Generator
My main concern is keeping my furnace running during a power outage. I have a new generator, but have not set anything up. I prefer not to open the main panel and install a transfer switch, so how bad is this idea? The furnace is wired directly from the panel on its own line and a 20 amp circuit breaker. What if I were to install a junction box and power outlet along the line, and just plug the furnace into the box? Then in a power failure, I just unplug the furnace from the house wiring and run it off the generator, so no backfeeding? Thanks for any advice/caution.
