I have enough power with a 2000 watt Yamaha. BUT, all it needs to run is the fridge, computer, and coffee maker. The furnace, water pump and lights are all 12 volt. If I had to run the 220 volt well pump, it would require a much bigger unit.
I think a minimum of 5000 watts for a regular house, probably more if using electric heat. But as others have said, a chat with the sparky is needed.
