Item Information

The Champion Power Equipment 100179 Home Standby Generator System - 12.5 kW Home Standby Generator and ATS100 (99 Amp, NEMA 3R Automatic Transfer Switch) - is The Simple Solution to a power outage. Security, convenience, health and safety are all things that every homeowner holds dear. Don't put these things at risk during a power outage. Millions of individuals suffer from the effects of a power outage annually. No electricity means no lights, no heat or air conditioning, no internet, no refrigeration, etc. A power outage lasting only a few days can also cost the average family thousands in repairs. If power goes out a Champion Home Standby Generator will keep the lights on, run heat and air conditioning, keep security systems operating, power major appliances, keep the home business operating, power a sump pump, protect against frozen pipes, give you peace of mind while you're away, and much more. No more searching for flashlights, no extension cords, no refueling in the dark. If utility power is interrupted, the Home Standby Generator will automatically detect the outage. In a matter of seconds it will start and deliver continuous, reliable power to your home - ensuring the things you need most stay on. When the utility power is restored to your home, the generator will automatically return to standby mode. It will also automatically perform weekly self-diagnostic tests to assure that it is ready and waiting for the next power outage. The generator is permanently installed outside of your home and connects directly to your home's natural gas line or propane supply. Without the need to manually refuel and with quietest-in-class noise levels, this generator will keep your life interruption-free.

  • Seamless 24/7 Power - no refueling, no manual operation, no extension cords needed with a ATS100 automatic transfer switch (99 amp, select circuit, outdoor rated)
  • Sub Zero Start - 24V starting system designed to operate down to -22° F
  • Easy Access - innovative gullwing enclosure for easy installation and service

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, Quality Power I installed this 12.5 KW generator on a concrete slab outside my garage. It was fairly easy to install and gives my wife and I peace of mind in a northern climate with severe weather. Champion makes a high quality product that has functioned perfectly! Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed and built product! I purchased this 12.5k unit to replace my 13 year old Generac witch recently failed. I installed the previous unit myself fallowing all codes and standards. I feel confident with the install being a Journeyman Electrician. Most of the install was demoing out the old unit and swapping in the Champion. The units are comparable in size and capacity. I first saw the Champion hsb at the Sandwitch fair and thought it was a good design. When the Generac failed I looked at the Champion because it looked like a quality product at a fair price. The manual was easy to understand and well written. I like how accessable everything is and the oil drain pan is a nice touch. I ran it today to test the transfer switch and had absolutely no trouble. Time will tell but, I do believe the Champion is a winner!

Does the generator include a UPS for the gap between power failure and generator start, or will the power drop briefly? Does the vendor also provide battery/UPS for this gap?

Asked by: Mike003934
Sorry, the generator does not include a UPS. This is something you would need to purchase separately as we do not manufacture them ourselves.
