How many watts does the average small ac window unit use. I have a 700 watt continues- 1800 peak invertor 12volt to 110 and Im trying to figure out if it will run it.

there should be something on the unit telling you it's input and output.

about 6000 BTU's is all you are going to be able to run on 700 Watts. Carrier makes an inexpensive "Window Shaker" that runs on 115V AC and 600 watts. Good for about a 200/250 Sq ft room.

sweet then sounds like the average window unit one will work, Im installing it in my Ford Van for the long ride to Orlando so it should be plenty to cool it down inside.

I just put an 18000btu unit in my garage and it draws like 1800 watts and 8 amps. The 14000 BTU unit was like 1380watts and 7 amps. So probably only one of the smallest units.

Ive got a window tray from A&W that you can use to support this AC unit!

LMFAO....

Is this the same brain power that goes into the worlds fastest 2nd gen hemi truck?

LOL

Real racers? Surely, you dont consider yourself a real racer!

More than likely, if the inverter has overload/reset it will trip the overlod on start-up (when compessor hits) and it won't even let it run.
After screwing his friends out of gas money for towing him and his truck to orlando last year i guess they all said no to him this year.

Now hes stuck with the genius idea of putting an AC unit in a ford econoline van. :smt043
