I can run the cooling system and the freezer for 18 hours on one tank of gas, and not having to worry about summer time storms and losing power means a lot less stress.
The worst thing about living down south is the heat and the humidity. The fifth worst thing about living down south is the damn mosquitoes. They outnumber the people a hundred to one and they get smarter every year. It’s hard to control the mosquitoes, and it’s even harder to do something about the heat and humidity. I have a portable cooling system in my kitchen and central AC throughout the rest of the house. I do not enjoy to be warm or sweaty, and it makes myself and others know miserableâ€¦ Unluckyly, summer time storms often leave myself and others separate from power for hours or afternoons. The first time I had to experience a couple of afternoons separate from any AC, I went right to the hardware store to purchase a generator pressing enough to power the cooling system. I also wanted to keep the meat in the freezer from thawing out, especially since I spent $200 on groceries the week before the hurricane hit. I used my credit card to buy the nicest generator in stock at the store. The generator runs on gas and it has a pretty pressing tank.

I thought a generator was going to cost thoUSAnds of dollars, but I actually found something with an inverter for less than six. It works great and it’s genuinely easy to use. It does not even require much power to crank the starter. It’s absolutely perfect for my site.
