I've been thinking of getting one of these or a similar one - in case the power goes out in the middle of winter.

Would it be possible to hook one of these into the existing home wiring some way?

I'm looking to possibly run my furnace blower (gas furnace, so the only power needed would be to ignite the gas and run the blower) and maybe the water pump (well water) and microwave, refrigerator, freezer (none of these at the same time).

Trouble is, the furnace blower and water pump are all wired directly into the breaker box. Plus, I'd prefer to run this outside through the storage room, rather than run it inside the house.

We had a major power outage here a few years back, I moved in with my parents for a week or so then. They hooked one of the big generators into the dryer's 220 plug and then used that breaker to selectively turn on other circuits that needed power (the main breaker was turned off). Could I do something similar with a 120V plug?

I'm not familiar with this stuff can someone tell me if the power went out in a house what could this reasonably be used for? or it's the answer nothing? like water heater and refrigerator lights microwave tv?
Refrigerator for sure, but maybe one refrigerator only because of the surge when the condenser starting. TV, lights , computers, anything added up 2000w should be fine. Basically, anything in the house can be powered up by this thing individually except the AC or heater.

I have the Pulsar 2000is and it has worked out great.

Tempted to buy this one, but not sure if you could pair the different wattages together.... Or that I need another!
Sure you can. As long as it's a pulsar inverter.

These are inverter generators - you can literally stand a foot away from the thing and hear yourself. About the same noise level as a quiet running car is my best comparison. The one you linked would be fine if the power went out on your house - but you aren't going to want to use it where people will be (no camping, boating, events, etc). You'd have to yell over it at 20 feet away
Copy, thanks! I'm looking for one at the house when the power is out, so probably don't need a super quiet one. Although with any generator I'm in a tough spot because the fridge is wedged back to the wall, so even to plug it in to a generator I'd have to pull the whole thing out across the kitchen.

But, maybe to power the TV/Laptop/Internet this smaller one would be fine and I could just leave the fridge closed. Hmm..

What can your DuroMax run? I messed up and didn't check whether it'll run/start my LG french fridge.

Thinking of doing the same thing, need some kind of disconnect for the furnace blower motor and thermostat to then connect in an outage.

Great deal! I just bought it from amazon for $408 about two weeks ago. It seems to be well built, very quiet and starts up almost effortlessly. At $340, it's a steal!

I bought the white version of this generator last year and have used a few times camping, doing track days (tire warmer), and have also loaned it out to others. I haven't experienced any issues with it and am interested in getting this one as a backup and parallel installation to power household items if the power goes out.

FYI - I decided to do a little digging and saw that the one I got last year (ordered 3/9) was $349 but had a $70 coupon applied to bring the price down to $279. This price isn't too bad but it's definitely not as good as what it was last year...

Great deal. I bought one 3 weeks ago for $110 more. It has 300 more watts than the Duromax and is quieter if you believe the specs.
1800 watts and 8.5 hours running at 50% and numerous reviews stating all night run capacity. The Duromax deal was cheaper, but this one will run your fridge, TV, internet, microwave easier. Plus 2300 starting watts for ac units or refrigerators. They're all the same: Pulsar, Westinghouse, Duromax, etc. Easy to fill with oil and gas. Even has carburetor has a fuel drain hose so you can store it properly. Buy a gas can and a siphon and you are all set. and power tools with no problem. During break in, I ran my 1500 watt heater and tv I ran mine for 1 hour at varying speeds and then changed to a synthetic- it was much smoother and quieter. More like a putt-putt in ECO mode than a tap-tap-tap. Could barely hear it 10 feet from my backyard and a closed window/door. Also, you can prelube it by pulling the cord slowly. After breakin, it was much smoother.

Just placed order. Anyone has any operating/set up recommendations for this unit? Any YouTube link is highly appreciated. First time buying a unit like this. Is it safe to operate indoors?

Pulsar has higher output 1800/2300W vs Champion 1600/2000W

Champion is quieter. Champion 53 dBA vs Pulsar 59 dBA

Run time is tricky as they don't list run times in the same fashion but if running low loads, I think Champion has the edge on run time if you typically run lower loads.
Champion up to 11 hrs @ 25% load on 1.1gal tank
Pulsar 3.8hrs @ 100% load on 1.18 gal tank, 6 hrs @ 50% load

Champion has a fuel shut off built in to their EZ-Dial so you can shut off the fuel to the carb and run it "dry". Pulsar does not. To drain the gas out of the carb, you'd still need to use the drain screw on the carb for both.

Not significant but you need a screw driver to remove the Pulsar service panel cover while Champion cover can be unscrewed by hand.

I own two of the Champion 1600/2000W generators. I got about 10 hrs of run time off the 1.1gal tank overnight with loads typically under 1/4 rating (eco mode) with the occasional "surge" or spike when fridge would kick in. It's nice not having to keep going out in the middle of the night because of short run times.

The surge output is not as good as the Yamaha ef2000 even though on paper, they're both 2000W. This is the one thing I wish was better on the Champion but it does pretty good.

With one, I could run my fridge (linear compressor), lights and fans throughout the house, 32" TV and my front load washer (DC motor) with eco mode on. I could run either my chest freezer or a 10k portable A/C unit or a toaster oven with eco mode off. In parallel, I could start my gas dryer (AC motor with large startup current) or run 2 large loads at once without overloading the generator.
Thank you, springchicken for the detailed review!
Do you know which one is more durable between them?

And how do they compare to the Westinghouse 2500/2200 deal at Sam's club couple days ago?

TIA!
I purchased the Westinghouse at Sam's for $399. It has a bit higher peak and run wattage than thus one. The Westinghouse also has a display to show how much power you are pulling etc. The Westinghouse also claims to be a bit quieter. I expo ecy them to have similar run times on a gallon of gas. If you get the 10% eBay bucks, this one would be about $100 cheaper, otherwise about $75. Both seem to be good units. I will keep the Westinghouse as Sam's return policy, the higher wattage and display are worth the difference to me.
