Run Your Furnace with Your Car
Imagine coming home after an ice storm or major weather event to discover that your power is out and your house – and pipes – are freezing. If you have a gas-powered generator, you can plug in key electrical appliances like your furnace, but only if your generator is full of gas and well-maintained.
Wish you had a home generator but without the hassle, big cost, and maintenance? CarGeneratorTM is the world’s only portable, maintenance-free, fully weatherized household power source. With CarGeneratorTM, you’ll have enough electricity to run your gas or oil furnace, fridge, or other vital household appliance. Unlike a conventional full-size generator, or other emergency battery backup solutions, there are:
No Messy Gas Cans
No Battery Meter
Showing “Empty” (EVER)!
Why is CarGeneratorTM better than a conventional gas generator? Old-style gas generators are big, heavy things that take up significant floor space in your garage. They cost a lot of money and for most homeowners are likely only used once every few years, if at all. These old generators marry the noise of a bad lawnmower, the smell of stored cans of gas and the need for frequent refueling. On top of all of this, if you forgot to maintain and store it right, your old gas generator might not start at the very time you need it most.
There are more reliable versions that will power a whole house, but their $5k-10k price makes them a very expensive proposition.
When the power goes out, what’s the most important thing you need to keep running?
Your Furnace (In Winter)
Your Fridge (In Summer)
Your Internet & Devices
CarGeneratorTM will provide you with enough power for these vital appliances. CarGeneratorTM contains a pure sine wave power inverter in a weatherproof ventilated housing. Why is this patent-pending design so revolutionary? First of all, CarGeneratorTM’s unique, patent-pending design allows it to work in bad weather when backup power is often needed the most. In rain, snow, ice, or rainy summer weather, if your car starts, you’ll have backup power to run your furnace, fridges and more.
Secondly, using CarGeneratorTM in combination with your car means that your generator will require zero maintenance, offers easy storage, and will run for days because of the large gas tank, and extensively engineered safety and emissions systems of your modern vehicle.
Tapping into your car’s engine gives you virtually unlimited power, so unlike the various portable power packs, lithium batteries, and solar battery packs, you will NEVER see an “empty battery” gauge, EVER. You will always have plenty of power when you need it most.
Compared to conventional temporary power solutions, CarGeneratorTM offers a superior combination of great performance, ease-of-use, reliability, and low-cost.
COMMENTS AND REVIEWS
We are now the happy owners of a CarGenerator which has to be one of the most impressive inventions I've seen in a long while. Jonathan delivered our unit on Monday and provided us with a demonstration of how the unit would keep our furnace and fridge running in a power outage. My husband turned on his 2010 Dodge van and the furnace, attached to the van via the CarGenerator and a 100 foot extension cord from COSTCO, started up. AMAZING!!! The unit is lightweight, compact, takes up no room. And no diesel fuel to store. So clever. It will save us during the next power outage - kinda' looking forward to one just to see it work!
Next time there is an ice storm, which is very likely in this area in the few years as we move into an El Nino cycle, I will be toasty warm with all my modcons.
I have had a CarGenerator since before Christmas. Thankfully I haven't had to use it.
But I really wish we had it back in the ice storm of 2013, when my sister's power was out during Christmas day and into the evening.
A BBQ saved the day for the turkey, but if we'd had a CarGenerator at the time, we would have been able to have heat and light as well.
My favourite part of it is the fact I can keep it in my car's trunk, ready to use it in any weather if and when I need it. I was going to buy a full-on gasoline generator, but storing that would have been a royal pain as I don't have much room in my garage to begin with.
Also, I can't easily schlep a gas generator around, if it's needed somewhere else.
The CarGenerator literally goes where I go. I'm going to take it with me on car camping trips, as it's very handy for providing clean 110V for my laptop, etc.
I've tested it with my new furnace (DC variable speed motor, peaking at about 200W), and it works perfectly, with wattage to spare. It requires the installation of a 110 volt outlet, which is straightforward, but an electrician can help you if this is something you aren't confident doing.
Great for wherever/whenever you need power in a pinch. It's a great little device and very useful!
My wife and I picked up a Car Generator from Jonathan in order to give us some peace of mind at the cottage. Power outages are more frequent and in the winter it can be quite cold. Definitely would not be fun in an extended power outage. Jonathan came up to the cottage and helped us install an adaptor for the furnace so we could still power it from the Car Generator during a power outage. It will also run our fridge when power goes out in the summertime. Worked like a charm and now we have peace of mind if we are up there that we can still keep everyone safe and warm.
Exceptional, well-designed product. We're excited about the potential this holds. Great job!
We first heard about CarGenerator from a friend and looked into it as the product sounded interesting. We think it's a terrific invention that really meets our needs. The CarGenerator can heat our house using either of our vehicles. Its compact design takes up less space than traditional generators and is light and portable to carry and hang from your vehicle. Jonathan is very knowledgeable, professional and down to earth friendly. We would recommend CarGenerator!!
