And what you need to know about them!portable generator

Winter is in full swing, even though it might have felt more like spring this past week.  High winds, snow/ice storms and freezing temperatures are expected and often result in power outages. 

Portable generators, such as Honda or Generac, provide a popular solution.  Used correctly, they provide the power and peace of mind necessary to help ride out devastating winter storms. 

Here are some important tips for proper use

  • Ventilate properly outdoors, never inside
  • Prioritize your needs and avoid overloading the generator
  • Keep it dry to avoid electrical risk
  • Practice fire safety by keeping a fire extinguisher close by
  • Practice cord safety – Use the correct size cord and don’t use cords that are frayed or cut
  • Don’t backfeed - Say no to wall outlets!
  • Protect your hands!  Wear safety gloves before operating a generator
  • Cool before you fuel - Be sure the generator is turned off and cool before fueling it
  • Keep children and pets away from a hot generator!
  • Transfer Switch permanent generators must have a transfer switch

 

Stay warm and cozy this winter! Give our Perkasie 215-257-9171 or Harleysville 215-723-9805 offices a call and learn more about homeowners insurance. Generators make a great gift, but don’t forget to call our and talk to one of our agents about an even better gift: life insurance!
