I've sometimes thought about a generator. I could keep my boiler running in the house with just enough to run the controls at least, maybe for some lights too then. I don't understand the capacity's of gens and wattages and such needed. I guess one should have disconnect system to keep from damage when power comes on and etc. The boiler is just plugged in to reg 120 outlet for controls and could be plugged into gen, but would have to have gen setting outside door then? Garage is right there also, could run in there, a little better with door open?
NOW, see lots of generators listed as INvertors. So what does that mean? Invertors to me mean changing AC to DC or vise versa. What does that have to do with generators? This just some New Term and nothing really different, or is this a whole new type machine?
What size is reccommended to hook up whole house to run frig and 220volt well pump and the lights? How much is it too have the switch-over system installed to use the gens? Should one just build a little shack outside to house it in? With the limited use of said gen, do they just go bad setting around waiting for the moment to run? That is my beef, expensive to put in, yet just sits and decays when not being used. That is why I think I don't want one. But, as said to run my boiler for the hot water heat in house, so it don't freeze in walls and break, might be a choice I should make.
