Keep Safe with Home Upgrades This Summer

(Family Features) Extra time around the house this summer may be welcome for avid DIYers. With lists of upgrades and renovations to tackle, homeowners can rely on portable generators to power tools such as drills, circular saws and more when working outside.

“When used properly, a portable generator is a convenient and efficient power source for a wide range of home repair and restoration projects,” said Susan Orenga, executive director of the Portable Generator Manufacturers’ Association (PGMA). “However, when not used properly, portable generators may pose some safety risks that can be minimized through proper use and precautions.”

Generators come in many varieties, from those designed with professional features such as the durability needed to endure the rigors of a job site to those more suited for at-home DIY projects. Proper usage and selecting the right portable generator to power your construction project are important steps toward protecting your safety.
