WHAT APPLIANCES CAN THE FIRMAN ECO4990ES 3.0KVA GENERATOR RUN?

The FIRMAN ECO4990ES generator can power most home appliances such as;

Although, the ECO4990ES generator can power two 1.1HP, or just one 1.6HP or one 2.2HP FIRMAN Inverter AC under the normal link mode without other appliances.

 

THIS GENERATOR IS TOO SMALL FOR ME. WHAT IS THE NEXT LARGER SIZE?

If the ECO4990ES generator is too small for you, consider getting a 5.0KVA, such as the ECO7990ESSPG8000E2 and SPS12000SE. These are common choices for those interested in having a more extensive coil. Also, a 5.0KVA generator can simultaneously power a 3500W pressing iron, a 300L minifridge and a freezer with a few extra light bulbs and fans. A 5.0KVA generator can also power seven 1.1HP, five 1.6HP, or three 2.2HP FIRMAN Inverter Air Conditioners under the gen link mode without other appliances.

 

WHICH GENERATORS THAT ARE SLIGHTLY SMALLER SHOULD I CONSIDER?

The generators smaller than the 3.0kVA generators are the 2.5kVA. The options available under the 2.5kVA generators include ECO3990ESRD3910EXSPG3000SPG3000 with wheelsSPG3000E2 and FPG3800E2.
