Bad weather should not be your only worries for your generator system.
Generators are great for powering up your appliances and provide comfort during the cold winter season. Many Generator owners mostly likely spend time and money into protecting their Generator from these frigid temperatures. As helpful this may be towards your system, there are many other precautions that can be taken to ensure you protect yourself and your home.
Generators are not meant to be running in an enclosed space.
Similar to furnaces, generators - while running - can produce carbon monoxide. This is a posionous and odorless gas, it can cause dizziness, hallucinations, and death. Never run a generator inside a garage; even if the door is open the carbon monoxide will still be a danger. It is important you keep your system outside and exhaust vents cleared. Ensure any extension cords are not cracked, bent, or showing wires. Old extension cords can be unsafe when connecting to power.
Do I need my Whole-House Generator serviced?
Regnier & Associates offers and recommends annual maintenance be performed on your system. General Maintenance includes; Cooling System Check, Battery, and Electrical Check. Oil Filter and Air Filter changing as necessary. Having this maintenance performed annually ensures your generator is running with no issues and getting it ready for possible use.

Not Happy with your Portable Generator? Consider purchasing a Whole-House Stand-by Generator from Generac!
