<p> Please never use a generator in any enclosed space. Even in a vented space, the carbon monoxide emitted is extremely dangerous and even deadly for people and animals. Please run your generator outdoors, 15-20 feet away from your walls. </p> <p> The WGen5300v is powerful enough to power the average HVAC unit. </p>

Answer

When you go from 10/3 to 14 you’ll lose about 60% of the wattage supplied by generator. There’s no clear formula to say you’ll lose x amount per foot. My choice would be to stay as short as possible. PS. Nice generator, I’ve purchased two, for different projects

Asked by Tmac14 September 23, 2020

Answer

No, the WGen5300v should not be used to power sensitive electronics directly. You may be interested in one of our inverter generators, which produce <3% THD and are safe to directly power your sensitive electronics. Alternatively, you can purchase a separate inverter to use with the WGen5300v, which will make the energy safe for use with these devices.

Will Keep my Home Running on Whole House Propane
Customer review from westinghouseportablepower.com logo
The Dual Fuel option for this unit was just what I wanted. I was able to connect to my Whole house (1000 gallon) propane tank and it runs great. The 220V was able to run my well pump, keep my fidges going, and run a few other things. I should never run out of propane and won't have to worry about keeping gasoline on hand which gets old and can be a pain.
