Generator, plugged in, outside, garage, driveway When you have a power outage, be sure to review the safety guidelines before using a generator.

When the Power is Out, the Generator Should Stay Out as Well

When the lights start to flicker one's first instinct is to grab the flashlights to be ready if the power goes out.

There is a large number of homeowners and businesses that own generators that can keep the vital systems in a home or building running.

The generators, which run on gas, exhaust fumes very similar to your automobile.  Making sure these fumes don't come back into your home is extremely important.

Generators should be placed Outside in order to exhaust the fumes out into the open.  Even putting the generator in the garage is not safe practice, the generator should be outside of the home and venting away from any fresh air inlet.
