15000 BTU AC

Unread postby bgant4 on Sun Oct 17, 2010 7:10 am

My fiver has a 15000 btu ac what size generator do I need? I only want to run the ac not the whole rig. I am told this is 14.7 amps. I looked at a Kipor on line that is 2600 watts but says it will not run a 15000 btu ac. 2600 is 19 amps so what do I need?

I realize that my reply is almost three months after your question. I hope you have solved your problem but, if not here is my best. It takes a lot more amperage to start an air conditioner than to just run it. 2600 watts would marginaly run it but could never start it without eventually damaging either the air conditioner or the generator. I believe a 3600 to 4000 watt generator would be necessary to be completely reliable in hot weather.
