I can run with my generator?
run as many lights and appliances as you want as long as you do
not exceed the capacity of your generator. A 6000-watt generator
can run 60 - 100 watt light bulbs at one time. This is why you
should keep all your breakers feeding the lights and rooms of
your house on with the exception of your kitchen and bathrooms.
Just add up what you would like to run and make sure to stay under
your generators full load capacity. Note that it is also a good
idea to not load your generator past 80% for long periods of time
(more that one hour) unless you have an industrial grade
model. Most appliances have the wattage
clearly listed on the nameplate. If only Amperes and Volts are
given just multiply them together to get watts. (10.2 Amps x 120
Volts = 1224 Watts). Below is a guide to what various appliances
use (check your appliances for actual wattage numbers as they
can vary from one to the next).
to appliance wattages:
- Electric water
- Microwave 1600
- Toaster Oven 1800
- One stovetop element 2200
- Hair Dryer 1500
- Well pump 2000
- Basement sump-pump 900
- Refrigerator 700
- Freezer 700
- Furnace or Boiler w/ Gas,
oil, propane 700
with only a 6000-watt generator you can do almost anything in
your home that you would normally do just not all at one time.
For instance you can turn on the hot water heater at night when
little else is running and have a full tank of hot water in the
morning but keep it off during the day so that you would have
that available power to work other appliances in the house.
If you have gas, oil, or propane heat you can run your furnace
or boiler and keep warm. However if you have electric heat most
generators under 10000 watts will not have the capacity to run
it. That is the same for central air as well. The InterLock
kit will handle any size generator though so if you have an electric
heat pump or want to run your air conditioning unit then you should
consider a 12000-watt or 15000-watt generator
