I'm being told by several of my colleagues that the vast majority of residences in my area are equipped with Class 250 natural gas meters and that they may not be large enough to have the capacity to deliver enough gas for a generator, range, furnace, clothes dryer and water heater. Customers may be required to bump up to Class 400 meters at their expense. I was trying to find more information about this and found this website :
but I don't know how to interpret the information. If any of you have some degree of plumbing background (no disrespect intended) would you please offer some insight ?
I checked the specs on the following Generac units and found this NG consumption info :
10KW - 102 ft3/hr @ 50% load
14KW - 156 ft3/hr @ 50% load
20KW - 206 ft3/hr @ 50% load
I'm asking this because many of us are taking these jobs on as GC's and the onus will be on us not only for proper generator sizing but also for proper gas capacity sizing.
Thanks in advance.
