Just ordered a Honda EU2000ia...wish me luck!

After reading about Mike G's luck with his Yamaha, I went ahead and ordered a honda from Wise. From everything I understand, the two brands are interchangeable. Since I own a Honda Accord and Honda mower, I decided not to buck the system. I figure if it doesn't run the 10,000 btu cool cat, then I'll just get the companion. However I'm hoping that I have the same luck as Mike and can squeak by with single 2000.

I did read about hard start capacitors(SPP6) helping with starting the compressor. Has anybody installed one of these on the cool cat? I might not even need it as it seems newer, high efficiency ac's are rewriting the rules for what is needed. Any thoughts are appreciated.

LM

I have had a Honda 2000W Genny for five years now and I love it. Starts every time and runs great. You'll be happy with the Honda. Good Luck.

I'm in the same boat here...I want a genny, torn between the Honda 2000 for size, noise, reliability and portability (plus there's a dealer 6 miles from my house,) but will it run my 13500 BTU AC, or do I go with a Boliy 3600 which is a little heavier, a little cheaper, probably a little louder, maybe less reliable and no dealer in sight, but will run my AC? Decisions, decisions...so let us know how your Honda performs, and to anyone else that has one, how does it run your 13500 AC?

From my research, I read where the Yamaha 2400 was designed to run 13,500 btu ac's. They are very comparable to Honda genny's. I read where some had used 2000's to run 13,5's but most were running them at sea level or just above. It's a no brainer at 13.5..go with the Yammy 2400. Or you could run double honda or yammy 2000's if a single doesn't work and have more than enough.

Yamaha was smart in sizing their genny!
