Question About Stand-by Generators
Here in NJ the Halloween snow storm hit us hard, 2nd storm so far this year that has knocked out power for several days in a row. My wife has asked about a generator to run furnace, fridge etc. We have natural gas so fuel isn't an issue.
Our home has windows on all 4 sides so we would have to put a pad at least 20ft from the home, but local regulations say that it would have to be at least 20ft from the property line. This causes me problems.
A guy I know said he heard of people having generators installed in a spare garage bay and providing ventilation via permanent piping to the outside. I tried searching but can't seem to find a generator that is advertised for interior use.
Anyone ever hear of this or is my buddy blowing hot air up my you know what?
