I would recommend using a inverter generator because they are lighter in weight, use less fuel, and are much quieter than standard generators. Here is a site that mentions some good inverter generators and other reason that they are better than conventional or standard generators. biggrin.gif

You are responding to a thread that is over a year old; I doubt any of the original participants are watching it too carefully.

Although this thread is a little older, I thought I would update some of the special considerations 2013 has for quiet generators. I'm the editor of Volt Magazine, which focuses on generators and power requirements.

The biggest change since when this thread was created is the growth in invertor generators which are much quieter than standard gas plants. Invertor generators work by creating DC power and then storing it for use as AC power when required. This provides much cleaner electricity and is ideal for sensitive electronics like televisions or computers.

The reason these are quieter is because the engine doesn't have to work as hard. Every traditional gas generator has to run at 3600 rpm to produce electricity where a inverter generator runs only when needed and can run at a lot lower rpm rate.

Another important consideration is the new environmental concerns in California regarding generators which are often called CARB which stands for California Air Resources Board - but many states are also adopting similar rules for proper emissions standards. The goverment website it http://www.arb.ca.gov/homepage.htm

One last thing - generators are rated on the A sound scale - and you will see on most models a rating in DBA which is the sound decibels the generator runs at. A human conversation takes place at between 60 and 65 dba - a quality quiet generator runs below 58 dba. The best generators such as from Honda run in the low 50's.

You can read a lot more on which models run quiet etc and what to look for on our website at quietgeneratorguide.com.

Thank for the post. And I like your quietgeneratorguide.com site.
