As the latest hurricane nears the coast, I have a question about which window air conditioner to buy.
On most days the central hvac keeps up with the demand, as we like to keep the thermostat at 78º But if we have company over or do a lot of cooking, the central air can't handle the load. So I am thinking of buying a window unit to suppliment the central HVAC in the summer, and when hurricanes strike and the generator is needed, I can have some level of comfort. The generator runs everything in the house with no problems with the exception of the 70 amp central air which of course we do not run on the generator.
What would be the suggested BTU of a window unit for a generator that puts out 6250 continuous watts. Since we are 2 adults, we can easily get our generator usage down to the window unit + fridge + some lights + small TV when the AC is running.
