Will a 2000 watt generator run a furnace?

If you have an oil or natural gas furnace, the generator can power a third of the fan. The running load is 700 watt while the surge wattage is 1400 watt. A 2000 watt generator wouldn't have the same amount of power as a radiant heater, multiple lights, and a couple of fans.
