I can't answer the question you did ask, but I can answer one you 
didn't.  I've been very pleased with the prices and service from  With their prices you can get much more UPS 
for less money, rendering an exact calculation of needs less important.

I have no connection to the company except as a satisfied customer.

Also, I *have* a big UPS from them, but my outage was ~3 hours, which 
was about 2 hours too long. :-(  Now I have to try and talk my wife into 
a backup generator...  Wish me luck...
