What Can You Run With a Whole House Generator?

whole house generators

Whole house generators can run critical household appliances such as the refrigerator, freezer, and furnace and multiple other appliances, such as the television, lights, microwave, and more, all at once. Whole house generators have larger, more powerful engines that can handle higher power capacity. As long as fuel is provided to the generator and it is running correctly, it can run continuously for days, with short breaks every 24 hours, to give the generator time to cool down.

Where is the Safest Place to Run a Whole House Generator? 

Whole house generators should be placed outside and at least 5 feet away from doors, windows, or fresh air intakes to the home or garage. They should be placed in a space with adequate ventilation where exhaust cannot accumulate, and the engine exhaust should be directed away from any openings to the home. They should be placed in a location that allows the generator to operate effectively without putting the residents in the house in danger.
