Hi, will this safely run a new/modern home furnace cleanly? Without damaging the electronics? I just installed a new Trane furnace with a D/C motor and would hate to void the warranty by frying the electronics.....

Asked by: Alaninwaterloo
I think it is ok, but I would check with my furnace guy. It worked great on my modern fridge and freezer.

What is the decibel rating for this

Asked by: John c lee
It’s not a Honda...but very reasonable for the price. Great to keep your batteries charged but will not run the microwave in our RV when plugged into the main power cord, on its own possibly but draw on other circuits is to much to just plug and play. Will be upgrading to a larger one for that reason.

They work with a local service company. In my case it was a company in Burnside Industrial park, had the machine repaired and fixed in a few days. FYI it was the pull cord that failed but the service was excellent.

Firman Whisper Series Gas-Powered 1700W/2100W Inverter Portable Generator is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its an overall good product. Very silent and easy to use. It could be a little less heavy for carrying, got frustrated with the issue and return to warranty with less than 5 minutes of working time.
Date published: 2019-12-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from As the saying goes, you get way you pay for. I bought this generator on sale and it seemed like a "no-brainer". However, the unit I received had some over torquing on several screws for the case, which made the unit appear used. During operation, it surged or hunted in the RPM range when any load was applied. It was also quite loud at high load (90% or so). I couldn't overlook the surging RPMs, so I returned the unit. These problems could have been isolated to my unit as reviews seem very positive for this generator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from product perform above expectaions We had a heavy Colorado low come though in October, knocked out 60% of east west power lines. We were with out power 10 minutes short of 7 days. Had traditional power plants; however had difficulty sleeping with the noise at night as we needed to keep sump pumps running as the 2 feet of snow melted. Also the fact that we were burning about 70$ worth of fuel prompted me to go out and purchase an inverter. I did not have a choice as the shelves were almost empty. I did not do all the fancy break in procedures as some of the reviews suggest. I have worked on heavy equipment and farm tractors, when they overhaul something they put it on a dynamometer to put it under full load to break the engine in. I did swap out the oil on a regular basis, about every 10 hours. I could fill it at 10 pm, and it would run the sump pumps all night till about 8 am, than I would hook up our Lincoln 250 amp welder that put out 10 000 watts to run the household in the day time. Ended up taking the invertor to the car garage were we had 2 freezers, The third or fourth day the ice cream started to get soft, so the inverter ran both freezers for the day to bring the temperatures back down again. Like the easy starting, and the light weight. will end up buying a larger inverter to protect larger electronics in the yard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starts easily, and o too heave I bought the generator to use with our travel trailer Nd wanted a generator that would be east to start and not too heavy. ELL this one took care of both my wants. After putting the oil in and gas in the tank I thought I would pull the cord to start it slowly to get the lubricant circulating. To my surprise it started on the second pull. So I’m off to a good start with this little generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from W01782 1700/2100 Watt Inverter is perfect for our needs Over the past few months we have experienced 4 blackouts, some lasting up to 3 hours. I purchased the Firman W01782 inverter generator for emergency situations. The 1700/2100 wattage output this unit provides is perfect for our needs. We tested it on our home gas furnace system, refrigerator, microwave oven and all our electronics. The clean voltage this unit provides worked perfectly for all of our electronic equipment. (PC, Laptop, HDTV, DVR and Satellite Receiver) With winter and cold days just around the corner, it refreshing to know, that when we experience a blackout this winter we will have heat, lights and entertainment, etc., until the electric utility makes their repairs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not sure at this point-talk to me in a year or two Just bought this thing. First time starting it, it ran for a minute, then stopped. Very good customer support I have to say, although in future if somebody says "it doesn't work" then the suggestion of "take it it to a repair place" should probably be the FIRST suggestion. I spend at least a full day and therefore lost a full day to doing the repairs that were suggested. Again, VERY good online support, however, after a lot of work the support said "would you mind taking it to a service depot". I can't even imagine WHY I would mind that! Short of that it would mean returning it, which probably would have been better but it was bought online. Long story short, the repair guy found that some bracket must have come off during transit. Although we only have the company's word that they start up every machine, and sorry fellas, but in this day and age virtually EVERYTHING companies say has to be taken with a grain of salt, nothing personal. Anyway, he fixed the bracket and we started it up and it 'seems' to run great, but we've never actually used it for a long period of time yet, so this review maybe WOULD be a lot better if I got this invitation to review in a years time. However, maybe double checking said bracket would be in order if it broke during transit, and immediately suggesting people bring it in for repairs. However, I'm always looking at how companies do public support because of course anything can happen during the production line, and the online help and service was quick to respond, very friendly, and very helpful and I learned a few things. And to be fair, the repair guy did say that he sees very few of these, but as it was bought online I'm not sure how many around here buy this brand, but certainly based on the quietness of it and the online support I'm pretty impressed. Just not quite sure yet on its 'longevity', so maybe another review invitation in a year or two's time is a good idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value - Free Cover! Quiet, quiet quiet and a powerful little Inverter! Bought this gen the beginning of summer used it for a couple fishing trips, 7 weeks ago pulled it out for a power outage, bought the 3300 - connected them together and have been running them non-stop ever since - part of Halifax that got hit with Dorian and have had spotty service ever since, so we have been basically livng in our camper until we get a steady stream of service - This Firman has been a steady, reliable, and incredibly quiet stream of Power - their tech support team is the best, I was a little nervous connecting the two gen together - shouldntr have been - they walked me throughy it in 2 minutes and was off an running - with these two together could run what I need in my home but we are kind of enjoying the camper and maybe its a little retirement practice - im getting close - closer with these firman's running everything I need and more.... a/c now the heat (of course), fire place, microwave, we have a heated toiled and floor - yea thats great and it runs all that and my snore machine and cleaner, shoot - with eveything we have plugged in, has not slowed down for a hot second!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. For the price it's a good product. If your looking for an inexpensive yet easy to use generator this one is great. It's no where near a Honda for sound, it's much louder, but easy to start, so far fist pull every time. I was disappointed it was not powerful enough to run our microwave in our 5th wheel, which is a 1500w.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Generator for Ham Radio Operators I use this for my Ham Radio ventures, it's very RF quiet on HF and sips gas. Greatly outperforms Honda in this area and many others. It can run full output with no problem. Very clean output. The 12v plug is for charging lead acid batteries, don't use it for other things as the manual states. Has a cast iron sleeve and publishes its specs and every part used in the manual, unlike other manufacturers. Lastly, it's made in the USA, do your homework if your an HF operator! de KW4HQ

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Prise d'air sous la génératrice J'ai acheté il y a 9 mois. Remisé selon le livre de firman. Redémarrer la semaine passé. Le.ralenti est erratic..monte et baisse et le économiser arrêté la génératrice. La prise d'air aussi est en dessous de la génératrice ce qui fait un non sens. Elle aspire tout ce qui est en dessous et ça s'en va dans le moteur en partie car le filtre est trop mince.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used it for 3 weeks on a fishing trip I used the Firman to charge our RV battery, to operate a small freezer and a 12 volt cooler daily averaged 3-4 hours per day. It was easy to start good on gas, noisier than a Honda same size charged my flash light with the USB port. It is light weight easy to move around. Checking the oil is a pain 5 screws to remove to get to dip stick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Firman whisper series 2100/1700 gen Surprised! Lowe’s offered these at 1/2 of the Honda one we previously owned. Strapped on back of our 28’ Bayliner and it is Excellent. Being in a Cove noise is frowned upon. This unit works perfectly fine with minimal sound!! Thank you for such a great unit at a incredible price. Plus bonus cover!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Une super alternative compact en cas de panne Je cherchais une alternative électrique en cas de panne, cette génératrice compact est très bien conçu, seul bémol la prise d’air est sous l’appareil, il est donc important de ne pas utiliser l’appareil sur une surface poussiéreuse ou sableuse. Sinon tout me semble parfait !
