When electricity goes out as the result of hurricanes or other storms, we often hear news stories about people waiting in line to buy a home generator. It may be to keep a few lights and appliances going, or for vital medical equipment for a loved one. For many it’s their first time operating one. The video below is especially for those who are new to home generators, but it can be helpful for those out of practice at running one. After all, it’s not common that most generator owners need to use them on a regular basis outside of emergency situations.
The video is a brief primer on using your home generator safely. A brief disclaimer is in order, since the video was produced by Lowe’s.
