    What kind of gas generator do you need for a 1200 square foot house?

    Need for norther wintertime; in a bungalow with high efficiency propane furnace and the usual kitchen appliances.  What is are the optimal horse power and watts for such a generator?

    Is this model enough? What brands do you recommend and size? For what reasons?

    Thanks in advance, - Duddy.

    It's not the square footage, it's the power you expect to use. Look at the things you would need to use with your generator. They will usually say how many watts it uses. Or amps times volts equals watts. Add that up, and then get a generator that can handle more watts than you figured because you will wear it out if you try to just barely cover the load.
