We just went a full week without power, just running my 2K Sears generator, which holds about 3 quarts of gas. Really tries the patience. Seems time for a serious upgrade. Early stages of planning.
I am thinking one of the smaller standbys, although I guess that would require a propane tank (no Nat Gas here). Seems the stanbys are generally quieter than anything with wheels. For my situation, that would be a big plus.
My question right now would be can a standby be located under a structure. The 2 pics below are my Do-it-yourself Ipe deck. the lattice (2" holes) keeps the critters out, but sufficient air circulation to keep the Ipe deck boards from warping. The lattice is on three sides of the deck. I already have two - 2Ton Goodman compressors under the deck. Both vent upwards, aluminum grates in the deck boards seem to work fine. So, is it possible to put something like a Generac 8K to 10K generator under there?
Thanks in advance!!
