What's the amp draw on the window AC unit? A 230v unit would pull less amps and is a tad more efficient than a 120v AC unit. But, add up the wattage and get a gen that can provide that power at about 85-90% continuous max of the gen.

Those harbor freight gens are fairly quiet too.

But know this, I don't know any gens that are ~7500+ kW that are "quiet" like the tiny Honda gens you see powering a radio and some lights.
