In order to have a back up source of electricity in the house hold, which is often required when disaster strikes, many choose to have their local electrician install a back up generator.
Rather than being without power for hours, days or weeks, the right backup generator can provide adequate power to refrigeration and cooking appliances when needed. As your electrician will explain to you, it is required you buy a backup generator that is rated for the amount of power you think you may require (in times of need). It is wise to choose a generator that produces more power than the sum of the power required by your home appliances, as it may otherwise blow a fuse or falter times at which your appliances can operate.
Generators need to be turned off and cooled before refueling. Spilt fuel on machinery parts has an explosive capability, and it is therefore imperative to read refueling instructions carefully and proceed with caution.
Another hazard to be aware of is the potential risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, as the carbon monoxide can sometimes leak from the engine exhaust. It is also worth noting that every year people die from events related to back up generator use, from causes such as electric shock or electrocution. With these safety issues in mind, it would be money well spent to speak to your local electrician about the safest way possible of implementing your system.
