How Does an Inverter Generator Differ from a Standard Gas-Driven Generator?

Q: How does an inverter generator differ from a standard gas-driven generator?

A: Inverter generators utilize a different type of alternator to generate very clean AC power. The engine can operate at varying speeds, which reduces noise levels and fuel consumption compared to standard generators. The inverter technology is a fairly new development that also reduces the generator’s size and weight. These units also offer cleaner power for sensitive electronics. Small inverter generators produce 1,600-2,000 watts of electricity and are designed to power multiple appliances simultaneously. Larger inverter generators produce enough power to start a rooftop RV air conditioner while simultaneously running a microwave, and some of the newest models offer enough capacity to serve as a home backup generator. You can also pair two inverter generators in tandem to double your power while still benefiting from the clean, quiet power of an inverter generator.
