Inflatable bouncy houses are a great way to keep kids entertained, but they can consume a lot of energy. To ensure that your bouncy house is properly inflated and safe for use, you may need to use two blowers. But how do you know if two blowers are necessary? In this article, we'll discuss the power requirements of bouncy houses and how to choose the right blower for your needs. Horsepower (HP) is a measure of the total energy generated by an inflatable fan during operation. It's similar to the power of your car, but less.
Most inflatable house blowers have 1 to 3 horsepower, and more power means that the fan has more rotational power, which translates into more speed and more air output. The higher this number, the faster the inflatable house will inflate and the firmer it will be during use. When it comes to choosing the right fan for your bouncy house, it's important to know how much electricity you'll use and how much it will cost to operate a bouncy house for an hour or for a day. Generally speaking, you'll want a higher CFM (and probably more power as well) the bigger the bouncy house. For example, a huge commercial bouncy house like the 22-foot x 22-foot Big Bubba will need at least 2 horsepower and 1000 to 2000 CFM. If your bouncy house is going to be more than 100 feet away from an electrical outlet, it's best to use a generator to power the fan.
Make sure you buy the leaf blower that consumes the least energy if you like to blow up your children's bouncy house too often. It's also important to make sure that the surface is wide enough to fit a fully inflated bouncy house with some extra space around it so that your children can move around comfortably. A leaf blower can make your life easier if your children love bouncy houses and you are a lover of water sports who also travels to the beach to fish, sail or surf. In conclusion, large bouncy houses can consume more than 1.6 kilowatts per hour, and some may even require more energy. This is when two fans come in handy, and for an extremely large bouncy house, you may need two 1.5 HP fans. Make sure you choose the right fan for your needs and consider using a generator if your bouncy house is far away from an electrical outlet.
