What can you plug into a 3500 watt generator?
- Energy saving LED or CFL lights which consume about 14 watts each.
- A freezer, which on average consumes about 700 watts and needs 2100 to start.
- A refrigerator which needs 2100 to start and on average consumes 700 watts.
Regarding this, will a 3500 watt generator run an air conditioner?
These have high starting power requirements (over 2,000 watts each), so you can probably only run one or the other on a 3,500-watt generator. 3,500 watts may also not be enough to run a pump and air conditioner at the same time, since you're likely to exceed your generator's surge power.
Also, what can my generator power? The power capacity of different portable generator models varies as widely as the appliances they power.
Appliance Power Requirements.
|Appliance||Running Watts||Starting Watts|
|Well Pump 1 HP||2000||6000|
|Furnace 3/5 HP Fan||875||2625|
Also to know, what size generator do I need to run a refrigerator?
For example, if you want a generator to run a refrigerator and a freezer, the wattage (table 2) of the refrigerator would be 800 and the freezer would be 1,000. To select the correct size generator, you decide if both refrigerator and freezer are to start at the same time. If so, you would need (1,800 X 4) 7,200 watts.
What can a 4000 watt generator power?
On average, 4,000-watt generators can power three big appliances simultaneously along with small devices like coffee makers, microwave, phones, and laptops. For example, if you have a medium-sized house, you can power one full-sized refrigerator, one air conditioner or a power furnace, and gas stoves.
