Modern furnaces are constructed with electronic circuit boards and are sensitive to the quality of electrical power. Like most electronics a furnace requires pure sine wave clean power. CarGenerator provides this type of power which makes it safe to run with sensitive electronics.
How much power can this provide?
The amount of power provided varies by vehicle. The first and most important goal is to power your gas furnace to keep your house warm. CarGenerator testing shows that a typical furnace needs between 100-400 watts of solid power to run. After that everything else is a bonus up to the maximum your vehicle can provide. Once your furnace is running and you see how much power it uses, you can then add cellphone chargers, laptops, ipads, tablets, computers, a few lights, fridges and freezers depending on what your car provides. You can also rotate devices in shifts, so plug in fridges/ freezers for a few hours then switch to power other devices for a few hours to maximize your available power.
