How big of a generator do you need to run a house?

A generator with a rating of 5000 to 7500 watt can run the most important household equipment. A well pump, refrigerator and freezer, and lighting circuits are included. A generator can run all of these appliances at the same time. A 3000 watt generator is ideal for RV.
