Generators have been flying out of the hardware stores.  So if you plan to use a generator, here are a few tips you may want to know and use.  Compliments of our friends at ABC11

  • Use generators outside of the home in well-ventilated areas
  • Keep them at least five feet from all doors, windows, and vent openings
  • Never use a generator in a garage, even with the door open
  • Make sure the exhaust is directed away from your home an install carbon monoxide alarms
  • Never refuel a generator when it is hot
  • Store fuel outside
  • If you are using a generator to power your entire home, make sure an electrician installs it properly
