Better to be safe than sorry. Don’t let the power outage catch you off guard, when you’re supposed to be enjoying summer! At Suburban Lawn Equipment in Delaware, we encourage our customers to purchase Honda outdoor power equipment, and make sure they all know and understand how to properly use a Honda Generator.
To keep you and your family safe during power shortage, follow these 5 tips from Delaware’s Outdoor Power Equipment Experts:
- Read the manual. Following the manufacturer’s instructions is key. It’s a simple way to avoid hazardous situations and a guarantee to getting the most out of the generator.
- Use Honda Generators outside your home or business. It’s important to be aware of dangerous toxins around us, like carbon monoxide (CO). To make sure that your generator is not emitting toxins inside your home, install a battery operated CO alarm as an extra safety net.
- Use a heavy-duty extension cord for outdoors. Avoid extension cords with visible wires.
- Do not use Honda Generator in the rain. If so, you’re putting yourself in danger of shock or electrocution. It’s better to wait until rain stops, but if it’s absolutely necessary to use a generator, do your best to shield it from moisture.
- Never refuel a generator when it’s on. Cool it down first. It’s easy to cause a fire when gasoline or other flammable liquid spills onto a hot surface.
