This is a common question, We decided to go with the 2 Honda EU 2000s. We can run everything except the A/C with one and run both when we need A/C. The Honda's weigh 47lbs each, so easy to lift and move around.
To figure how much power you need you take the rating of the generator for our EU 2000 max 2000 (watts divide by 120 = 16 amps max) Or more accurate rated output 1600 divided by 120 =13.3 amps. Each appliance has an amp rating so just add up the amps and decide how much power you need. As far as noise the Honda EU series are very quiet.
Good luck in your search. I enjoyed learning about all the choices out there. If you decide to buy this company was great for us.http://www.mayberrys.com/honda/gener...tgenerator.htm
