We had an extended power outage a couple of weeks ago, and it didn't take us long to get tired of extension cords running to our little generator. Our power company offers Generlink, so we got a larger generator and are getting the Generlink installed at our meter.
The generator needs to be pretty close to the meter, and I've seen where a lot of people modify an outdoor storage cabinet into a generator shed. Of course the generator instructions say not to run it without a certain amount of clearance on every side, I assume mainly for airflow and exhaust clearance reasons.
The storage modifications typically include 2 or 3 louvered vents for general airflow and air intake, exhaust plumbing out of the shed, and some have a small attic fan plugged into the generator that is running whenever the generator is. Would there be any generator longevity concerns with a set up like this? If the weather is nice, which it typically is after a round of storms, we could open it up, but there may be an occasional need for enclosed running.
