Things You Should Know Before You Buy
Buying a generator can be a daunting process. However, you can take control by being informed and getting organized. Here is a simple checklist to use to help in choosing the correct generator to protect your home and family.
• Determine wattage needs: Determine how much power you need for the items you care about.
• Establish your budget: Generator prices fall across a wide range, so determining how much you’d like to spend is important.
• Select your generator: For home backup you can use a Standby or portable, depending on your budget, convenience, and power needs. Don't forget you will also need a transfer switch to safely power the circuits in your home.
Is price the deciding factor? If yes, go portable.
The main appeal of a portable generator over a standby is savings. You can buy a good 3kW unit for under $500, an 8kW for $1,500 to $2,000 and a 10kW for about $2,000. Prices vary depending on where you buy it and what brand you choose.
There are no user replaceable parts on the Kodiak.
You can run anything that you can plug into the wall that draws less than than 1100 Watts or 10 Amps at 110 VAC. Examples include: a refrigerator, freezer, TV, stereo, lights, microwave, grinder, mixer, blender, cell phones, computer, tablet, RV, trailer, and so much more. Adding solar panels will extend your run times.
2,000 cycles or 10 years. The warranty is one year limited.
1,500 Watt Pure Sine Wave. Max output of 3,000 Watts.
About 3 months. We recommend leaving it plugged into a wall outlet during storage or recharging it every 3 months.
No, the Kodiak system is designed to power individual appliances and devices rather than plugging into the home’s breaker panel directly. For instance, electric dryers, ovens, stoves, and water heaters all exceed the Kodiak’s ability. However, gas ovens, stoves, dryers, and water heaters can be powered using the Kodiak – provided they have a standard 110 VAC wall plug.
As the only safe place to operate a portable generator, taking it outside is absolutely mandatory to keep your family safe from carbon monoxide. But there's even more you can do. By educating yourself about all carbon monoxide risks, you'll be better prepared to protect your family from this colorless, odorless threat.
