500va is also 5000watts.
1hp=740watts.
2hp=1480watts.
But electricity don't like to be judged that way. It gets notirious when you are dealing with motor.
So, you will want to add a head room of about 250watts.
This implies, 2hp= 1980watts.
Then there is the start up current required to run a motor. Every motor wants to take three times it's rated power when switched on. So a 1hp motor would want to draw around 2500watts when switched on momentarily. But it will normalise within seconds.
Your 5000va can power the 2hp air conditioning.
