Can a Portable Power Station Run a Space Heater?


Many individuals rely on space heaters during the harsh winter months to keep warm. In the event of a power outage, having a portable power station that can manage the load of your space heater is critical. If batteries can power automobiles, shouldn't they be able to power space heaters as well? If the battery is big enough, then yes.

At the same time, you're looking for something that will endure and won't strain your wallet at the same time. Here are a few things to keep in mind while choosing the right size generator for your space heater:

How Much Power Does a Space Heater Consume?

In general, most space heaters use an average of 1,500 watts of power. However, it is subject to change based on the heat needed. Because certain gadgets are better at heating than others, you'll require more energy and a higher cost to operate them.

A space heater in a particularly big living room may be more efficient and less expensive to operate, but it may not be sufficient on its own for certain tasks. To avoid wasting money or overheating your house, choosing the correct generator size for your requirements (or losing power during an emergency) is vital.

How Much Power Does a 1500 Watt Heater Consume?

A 1500-watt space heater uses around 1250 watts of power in an hour. More than a refrigerator's worth! If you have a lot of energy-guzzling equipment in your house, it's huge and crowded, or you live in a region where power outages are often, you may want to invest in a bigger generator.

Is It Possible to Run a Heater with A Small Generator?

It is possible to run an electric space heater off a tiny generator. During the winter, building sites often employ small generators to provide supplemental warmth. A small to medium-sized powered generator can operate one or two electric heaters simultaneously.

Huge generators are capable of running 3 or 4 large heaters at once with their massive power. If your system has more than 3 or 4 electric heaters, you'll require a larger generator. As of this writing, a 20000-watt generator can simultaneously power up to twelve 1000-watt space heaters (hence the need for a larger generator).

When it comes to powering heaters, the basic rule is to use as much as necessary. So, if a heater requires 500 watts of electricity, then 1000-watt generators should be used to provide the demand.

Alternatives to Space Heaters in the Event of a Power Outage

In the case of a power outage, space heaters are not the only option. One possibility is to purchase and install an emergency generator, such as the BULLBAT Pioneer 800 Portable Power Station.

Safety Recommendations for Running a Space Heater from A Generator

When utilizing a generator to power your space heater, be sure to keep these safety precautions in mind.

1. It's best to keep a generator outside the home in a place that is readily accessible and has lots of air. Carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas, is produced when generators are used inside or close to windows.

2. If the generator is operating, keep a safe distance from it.

3. Never use a space heater when you're trying to get some shut-eye, and never leave children alone in a room with one on.

4. To prevent overheating and tripping breakers, keep your space heaters on for no more than an hour at a time.

5. It's best to use a timer to switch on and off your space heater.

6. Every room near your generator should have smoke alarms installed.
