After mid-July’s windstorm there were thousands of homes without hydro across the province. In Muskoka many homeowners were without power for more than a week.
If you have a portable generator to get you through situations like this one, then you know the challenges associated with connecting the power you make with your generator to your home’s critical equipment.
- The generator must be placed close enough to the house to allow the extension cords to reach to the appliances in the house. Both fumes (carbon monoxide) and noise are negative factors.
- You are limited in the number of appliances you can run by the number of outlets on your generator and by the number of extension cords you have in stock.
- You are required to run the cords through an open door or window.
Getting your power from your portable generator to your household equipment can be made much safer and convenient by the addition of a GenerLink® to your electrical system.
