This is a great decision. Maybe one of the best you will ever do.
We had a house generator 12 or 15 K for about 14 years that would run
most everything including the heat pump on the bedroom part of the house.
It eventually died and we replaced it with a 22K unit that will power everything in the house at once including the well. Power goes off
Generac auto starts in 10 seconds and life goes on. Love it.
We live in the country and when power goes out for any reason we were without power several hours.
Hurricane comes near it's worth it's weight in Gold.
I recommend you install a 250 gallon propane tank so it will
run 24/7 for the long hall.
