this should be used with an extension cord [or three]. Tying into the home wiring is a task for a pro ... the legal and safe way is to install a locking 'break before make' 220v switch in the main power feed from the electric meter [before the breaker box]. This needs a permit pulled and to be inspected by your local building department.Source(s): grampa

NONE. A portable generator IS NOT designed to tie into home wiring and has its own breaker for the load connected to it.
