We bought a generator yesterday. It's a powermate 5000 watts 6250 surge watts. I read it takes a lot less watts to use a pellet stove then space heaters. We have a Harmon p68. It's was quite pricey and we don't want to ruin. It seems like there is a lot of different opinions about the whole regular and inverter generators. Is anyone using a regular generator with their stove. Are you just using a surge protector or do you use a line conditioner. Does it not work at all or have people fried their control boards from trying it. I guess I just can't understand why it wouldn't work and seeing some people that say it won't and other say it will. Ay help would be appreciated. We have space heaters but 2814 square feet and they take so much power they are on low and we are a bit cold. We have kids and an elderly parent here.
