Proper installation of your generator is critical in order to avoid a fire, damage to electrical equipment, injury, and death.

Poisoning from carbon monoxide due to un-ventilated exhaust is possible.  A CO detector can tell you when a carbon monoxide leak is present.  This should be tested monthly.  Generators should never be installed indoors or outdoors near windows or intake vents.  Keep plenty of space open around the generator for air flow.
