Thoughts on a/c
I'm going to need a/c this summer in the north Texas heat. Last year, I ran a 6000btu window a/c unit with my portable generator. It worked fine to run it, but this year I'd like to be able to conveniently cool the house without having to manually start my generator. I would like to plug in an 18,000btu window unit and let my 10k standby generator auto start as soon as the batteries pulled to 24 volts or so. The generator would cycle off/on as the a/c unit cycled off/on. Is it feasible to set up my a/c this way, or would I be unduly stressing my battery bank and/or inverter? I can always hook up the portable and manually start the generator, but I'd sure like to be hands free with a/c if I could run it that way. Any advice or comments are appreciated. Thanks.
