Will a 3000 watt generator run a 15000 BTU air conditioner?
Besides, how many watts does it take to run a 15000 BTU AC?

One may also ask, will a 2000 watt generator run a 13500 BTU air conditioner? A 2000 watt generator won't be able to power your hot water heater. A 2000 watt handle the load of a 15000 BTU RV air conditioner with a higher starting wattage capacity could let you run a 10,000 BTU window air conditioner during a summer blackout. Once it is running, you have roughly 1800 watts left to work with.
Keeping this in consideration, what size generator do I need to run a 15000 BTU air conditioner?

What size generator do I need to run my air conditioner?
For a generator that you want it to run more than just a small AC unit, a 3200-watt generator could handle a larger AC unit and few more appliances. If you just want to cut throughout all the grey area and just play it safe. The 4000-watt generator covers even the largest RVs and lots of appliances.
