Your Generator Needs

To decide whether a generator is appropriate for your needs, you need to first add up the wattage of tools, appliances, and motors you need to run at the same time. Then choose a generator with the running wattage rating to match or exceed the total load.

Keep in mind that tools and appliances with electric motors require additional surge wattage at startup that may be double or triple the normal running wattage requirement. Have a look at the surge watts required and remember to make a choice a generator with enough additional wattage to start them. (And understand that you’re generally not starting more than half of the items at the same time.)

Here’s a sampling of power ratings for common household appliances.
