With harsh winters in the Northeast and severe weather in the Spring in the South as well as normal weather everywhere else, most homeowners, even in urban and suburban areas are turning to generators as a back-up power supply.
Ask any Home Inspector, Fire Marshall or Electrician, however, and they will tell you that while a generator might be a critical need, many people set them up incorrectly.
One wrong configuration and you can create a fire hazard, put power-line workers at risk when you turn it on or create a carbon monoxide hazard that can be deadly.
You can always hire an electrician to do the work, but if you know a thing or two about wiring and can follow some simple steps, you can cut out the middle man and do it yourself!
Head over to the Next Page and we'll show you a step-by-step way to install your generator safely.
