UNION COUNTY — Generators are used in a wide variety of weather conditions, but they should be sheltered from the elements, county officials remind residents. Protection for the unit must be provided in a manner that does not impede the needed air flow for cooling both the engine and generator head.
Keep at least five feet of clearance on all sides of the generator, including overhead, with the shelter in place. Failure to properly shelter the unit could lead to the generator shorting out.
Generators should be sheltered OUTSIDE occupied buildings and dwellings. They should NEVER be placed indoors.
