Questions about using a generator
I want my home to be able to use a generator to supply enough power for:
- lights, TV, computer
- A/C (4 tons) or range or on-demand hot water heater or dryer (these can be done at separate times)
I guess one of the questions is what is the best way to run a generator. I believe that most folks who run a generator simply plug it into an outlet, and it ends up feeding the main panel (how this could run the A/C which is 30A, 230V, I have no idea.) Or perhaps they do it some other way?
I guess the other question is how big of a generator to get for this desired load.
