Although, the ECO8990ES generator can power four 1.1HP, three 1.6HP or two 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 ECO8990ES generator is too small for you, consider getting a 7KVA, such as the ECO10990ESECO10990ESR and SPG10800E2. These are common choices for those interested in having a more extensive coil. Also, a 7KVA generator can simultaneously power a 5000W pressing iron, a 450L fridge or a freezer with a few extra light bulbs and fans. A 7KVA generator can also power ten 1.1HP, eight 1.6HP, or five 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 6KVA generators are the 5KVA. The options available under the 5KVA generators include ECO7990ESSPG8000E2 and SPS12000SE. They can power essential home appliances like light bulbs, fans, television, and seven Firman 1.1HP Inverter ACs under the gen link mode or five Firman 1.6HP Inverter ACs under the gen link mode without other appliances.
