I'm looking to get a generator sufficient to provide during outages for:
- modern gas/forced air furnace AND HRV system too, for ~ 2500 sq foot house (5+ energy star rated, so its efficient equipment)
- Garage heater (gas/forced air)
- large kitchen fridge/freezer
- 3 chest freezers, all the smallest size made (7 cu feet?)
- plus a couple of lights
I'm looking at a 7,000 or 8,000 watt generator. Am I in the right ballpark?
