There is about a 60% chance it will run your AC. Depends on how hot it is, what your elevation is, and what brand of AC you have. Coleman AC units are notoriously hard to run on a marginal generator. While the Yamaha gens are as reliable as the Honda's, this one really may ONLY run your AC sometimes. I have the Honda EU2000, should I ever need to run the AC, I'll buy another one and parallel them.
