No, because an AVR Generator does not give you pure sine wave power. It would be better to go with an Inverter Generator, which will give you pure sine wave power.
Pure sine wave energy is the type of power that is produced by your local power company.
The benefits of running your equipment and appliances on pure sing wave include:
Yes, depending on what model you buy, the Dba can range from between 55 to 68 Dba.
You can get opened framed inverter Generators and also enclosed inverter generators which provide different levels of sound dampening.
That is dependent on what you want to run, most people want to keep their fridge and freezer going in the advent of power loss.
Look at the example below for an idea of how much power appliances generally need to run. This helps you see the total amount of power that needs to be generated.
|Appliance||Starting Wattage||Running Wattage|
|Electric Fry Pan||1400||1400|
|Five room lights||300||300|
Yes, you can have any 2-wire start generator connected to your battery charger.
The battery charger will then talk to the Generator and tell it to turn on and charge the batteries.
Once the batteries are full the charger will then tell the generator to turn off.
How Does an Automatic Transfer Switch Work?
An automatic transfer switch, or ATS switch, connects your standby generator to your home. ... When the transfer switch detects a power outage, it switches your home to generator power.
Afterwards, it detects when the power is restored and switches your home back to utility power.
Please see the link below for a video on how an Automictic Transfer Switch (ATS) works with generators.
Here's how to make the most of your generator:
Here's another look at the power example.
Wattage Estimate Guide
This chart lists average power requirements. Your particular tool or appliance may require more or less than the listed wattage.
* Where START wattage is the same as RUN wattage, this signifies no additional power is required for starting.
Important Note: Always select a generator that has more capacity than your load requirements. The small amount extra you may invest to do this will be quickly recovered with the fuel saving and longer service life gained by not having to constantly run your generator at full load
The Generator Place has a nationwide network of service agents around NZ and guarantees spare parts backup.
It would come down to “what tools do I really need to run”, the chart below shows approx start-up watts.
