Portable generators can be utilized year-round, in fair or inclement weather. They must be operated outdoors given the carbon monoxide produced by their combustion engines. Today we remind you that you need to take special action during periods of inclement weather to protect your personal or rental portable generator.
Your business' need for portable power is not limited to blue sky days. When rainy weather sets in or is forecasted, you need to protect your generator from the elements. Any tent-like cover that provides for adequate ventilation of exhaust while simultaneously protecting the asset from direct exposure to rain is an adequate solution. For those of you who experience routine (if not daily) pop-up storms, then consider a permanent cover that custom fits the model and size of the generator. Certainly, if your portable generator is configured as a permanent backup system, it is essential to build a permanent generator cover.
There are some generators marketed as “all-weather machines," however rest assured that regular and recurring exposure to rain will shorten the unit's life cycle. A custom protective cover will more than pay for itself over time.
