Any window air conditioning equipment can be powered by a generator.However, depending on the size of the generator, you may not be able to supply power to many other appliances plus ac window units.Wattage is the main unit of measurement used to determine how much the generator can handle.If you are considering buying a generator to power the window AC unit and other appliances, you will need to do basic math and planning to determine if the generator you have chosen is sufficient.Wattage (W) is the basic unit of power measurement.It is defined as multiplying current (current or current) by voltage (potential ).All appliances plugged into the US standard duplex socket work at a nominal 120 V (V) voltage.The actual voltage on the socket depends on many factors, including the power facility and the length and size of the cable that supplies the socket.However, you could reasonably expect 120-The V circuit exists between 110 and 125 volts.Current (A) varies by unit.The window AC unit has two rated power: Starting power and operating power.The starting wattage is high, because when the machine starts and the motor starts to turn, the current peak will increase as the motor draws higher current to overcome inertia and start friction.The typical starting wattage of the window unit is 2200.Once the motor runs stably, the current drops and the power is usually around 1500.Your unit may have different ratings.Check the nameplate or specification in the manual to determine the power used by the AC unit.There are generators in almost any case.The smallest generator is portable gas.powered units.The biggest industry-Large generators can power the entire facility.The homeowner may either have a small portable generator or an overall generatorHouse generator.An electrician usually installs a generator connected to a subPanel or main panel according to its size and specifications.Connecting the generator to the electrical panel allows for more efficient and secure distribution throughout the house.The generator is rated according to the maximum wattage it can handle.Typical portable generators for emergency use by homeowners may have a power rating of 4000 to 7500 W.Whole-The spare model of the house is usually rated at 25,000 W or higher.If you are considering buying a generator, deciding what size to buy is not as simple as increasing the power of the appliance you are going to use.An informed power management strategy helps maximize the potential of the generator.
