But be careful.
When talking gas-powered generators. With the recent power outages here in the Merrimack Valley, a couple in Methuen suffered CO poisoning – the husband died, wife in critical condition, cat died, dog survived. Long story short = couple had two generators running IN THE HOUSE. Apparently there was no CO (carbon monoxide) alarm active there. http://www.eagletribune.com/news/haverhill/outage-claims-a-life/article_ffeea466-d409-550c-a7df-9365f8bf0090.html A few years ago – a family in Plaistow NH died because their CO monitor was going off. What a nuisance, right? So they pulled the battery out of it, no alarm, no problem? They all died.

Related is surge suppression; a discussion of whole house (shack) surge suppression would also be very useful.
