6000 Watt inverters are ideal for running power hungry appliances ranging from refrigerators, washing machines and other kitchen appliances to handheld machinery like drills and electric saws.
Multiple appliances can be powered from a commercial 6000 Watt inverter and hence these are ideal back-up sources of power for small businesses, garages and workshops.
Below we discuss some of our favorite 6000 watt power inverters in-depth to help you decide which one is the best for you.
Multiple electric appliances maybe connected to a 6000 Watt inverter, provided the combined power demand of the load does not exceed 6000 Watts. All electrical appliances have a wattage rating associated with them that specifies how much power is needed to operate them.
This rating is usually available on their labels. It is a recommended practice to have slightly oversized inverters. The usual rule of thumb is to oversize these inverters by 15-20%. As per this rule, a 6000 W power inverter can comfortably run a load of approximately 5000-5250 Watts.
A 6000 Watt inverter can typically power a few lighting loads, a refrigerator, a microwave, a coffee machine, washing machine and also charge your cellphone and laptop. Of course, specific appliance wattage ratings have to be checked as they may vary from case to case. The combined load must not exceed 5500 Watts.
Yes, a 6000 watt inverter is capable of running commercial refrigerators which typically have a wattage requirement in the range of 1500-1800 Watts. More power intensive commercial grade refrigerators can also be run. Most large refrigerators have an amperage requirement of 15 Amperes, which can be met by a 6000 watt inverter.
Inverters convert 12 Volt DC from batteries to 110 V AC for running electric devices. The current drawn by 6000 W inverters can be calculated as follows.
Watt (Power) = Volts (Voltage) x Amperes (Current)
Current drawn by 6000 W inverter= (6000/110) A = 54.6 Amperes approx.
The number of 6000W inverters available in the market is quite limited when compared to the options available in lower power ranges.
