FACTS TO CONSIDER

  • ZThese units tend to cost less than home standby generators.
  • ZThey typically run on gasoline that you may need to store in large quantities. Stabilizer must be added to your fuel for prolonged storage.
  • ZYou can use portable generators anywhere on or off your property—but never in an enclosed space. These models can quickly produce deadly levels of carbon monoxide. Always run a portable generator at least 20 feet away from your home, including equipment such as a central AC condenser or window AC, and direct the exhaust away from your home or any other structure, including the neighbors' home.
  • ZIf it's raining, shield your generator with a canopy designed for your particular model.
  • ZSeveral of these models offer electric starting. The battery required, however, may not be included.
  • ZThey provide from 3,000 to 8,500 watts.

New Portable Generator Safety Features

To reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, some new generators feature a built-in sensor that triggers an automatic shutoff if CO builds up to dangerous levels in an enclosed space; some also have engines that emit less CO in the first place. Test data from CR shows that these safety features are likely to save lives.

Our findings also reveal potentially life-threatening gaps that the automatic shutoff fails to address, reinforcing why it’s critical for consumers to follow safety guidelines. Never operate a generator indoors. Position a portable generator at least 20 feet from your home with the exhaust directed away from your house, as well as windows, doors, air conditioners, & other structures.
