What truly matters is what number of things you need to keep running in the meantime and how much power every one draws. Watts = Power. 

3500 watts = around Fifty eight 60-watt glowing lights 

Observe the distinction between "running watts" and "surge watts" and understand that a generator that can give 3500 watts constantly, additionally has a hold or surge limit with regards to beginning an engine. For whatever length of time that you don't surpass that surge limit with regards to more than 1 - 3 seconds, you're alright. 

Here's one gathering of things you could control amid a blackout. 

Icebox = normal 700 watts (needs 2100 to begin) 

Cooler = normal 700 watts (needs 2100 to begin) 

1/3 hp sump pump = 516 watts (needs 1550 to begin) 

"Vitality Saving" LED or CFL lights = around 10– 14 watts each. 

So as long as none of these mechanized apparatuses begins in the meantime, you could run these on a 3500 watt generator, expecting the generator has a 25% surge limit with respect to beginning the engines. A 25% surge limit an extra 875 watts. 

On the off chance that both the cooler and cooler were at that point running (1400 watts) and the sump draw turned on, that is 1550 + 1400 = 2900 watts for under three seconds. That gives you enough left finished for a couple of lights, energize the PDA and run your LCD TV to stay aware of neighborhood news. 

rundown of normal gadgets use for outdoors (surge/constant wattage). You simply need to figure it out.
