I cold weather would fire the furnace in out 5er with t-stat set at about 55 to 60, very nice to walk into a nice warm space on arrival.

Yes--under severe conditions. If need be, we run the generator to power heat pumps for heat or cool. Also allows for power to run space heaters in specific locations. Gensets are economical to operate and love to be run.....

Only if it's cold.
