Can You Run Your Portable Generator in Rain or Wet Weather?
Most people know carbon monoxide poisoning makes generators unsafe to use indoors. Thousands of people get sick, cause damage to their homes, or die each year as a result of running a portable generator to close to their homes.
So what if there is rain or snow outside? Consumers are left without a solution to run their emergency power in a snow storm, hurricane, or prolonged outage.
The threat of poisoning has now become an electrocution or damage risk. The costs are deadly.
Guidance from Generator Manufacturers
Every generator manufacturer states two very important warnings on the first pages of their manuals:
Do NOT run your generator indoors.
Do NOT run your generator in rain, snow, or on a wet surface.
