Question DetailsAsked on 11/7/2012

Information or advice about purchasing and installing a whole house natural gas-driven generator to run all heat, lights, all electricity

We have natural gas in the house for our stove, hot water heater and clothes dryer. A gasoline generator is useless when you have no power for 9 days and no gasoline to run the generator. We have a river that runs under our house and 2 sump pumps that run constantly. The battery back-up system has to be re-charged every 20 hours. I have two 12-volt batteries which I alternate and bring to a service station every day. So we can't vacate the freezing house, otherwise the basement floods as it did with Irene when we came home to water up to my knees. I want a system that kicks in as soon as the electric power goes out. I don't want to deal with this any more.
