Learning how to correctly hook up a generator to your home should be a core component of your emergency preparedness plans. It is sad to say but having power at your house is taken for granted by millions of people every day. And the cold hard truth is that one power outage could have you on your knees after a day or two.
My wife and I have been through 3 bad power outages in the past 5 or 6 years. And let me tell you this… they were not quick outages. They lasted between 5 – 10 days.
The first one we had to endure without a generator.
The second time we had a generator but ran an extension cord.
Subsequently, during the last outage, we ran a generator to our home. As a result, it was like we didn’t even have an outage.
Having a generator installed into your home isn’t cheap but it can be done the right way by yourself.
The article I am sharing with you today shows you the correct way to hook up a generator to your home. Always remember to have your work checked by a qualified electrician before you run the generator.
