An average bouncy house requires a generator that can provide a minimum of 2000 watts. Before purchasing a generator, be sure to check the specifications of your specific type of bouncy house. If you plan to use the inflatable house regularly outdoors, it is recommended that you buy an extension cable so that you can easily and quickly assemble the inflatable house. The fan of the inflatable house needs continuous power and will be running as long as the inflatable house is in use.
When you first turn on the motors of the inflatable house, they require more power than when they are fully inflated and only maintain the air pressure inside, as part of the incoming air is lost through the seams. I have successfully powered the motors of the inflatable houses with a 2 kW, 2.5 kW, 3 kW, and 3.5 kW generator, and I have powered two inflatable house motors simultaneously with a 5 kW generator. If you plan to use your bouncy house in a public park or in an area without access to a power outlet, there are some important things to consider when choosing a generator. Before using an extension cable to create distance, make sure that the generator exhaust points away from the bouncy house and not at a structure that reflects sound back to the party.
Inflatable houses are great for parties and events, but it is important to make sure that you have the right generator for your specific type of bouncy house. By following these tips, you can ensure that your inflatable house is powered safely and efficiently.
