Generator Shelter Plans
I'm about to build a shelter for my small portable generator (EU 2000) and looking at design options. Main thing I believe is to keep the generator out of the elements (rain and snow) and to ventilate it well for air intake and exhaust out. I was just wondering if it's worthwhile to incorporate other elements. One is to insulate the shelter. I live in an extremely cold environment in winter, and thought it may be a good idea, plus may help with noise reduction? The other is fire proofing. I really don't think that's necessary either, particularly if you vent it well. I will be running on natural gas primarily and thus will locate vents up high in the structure. Another concern is to build it high enough to prevent snow buildup from blocking any vents. Eventually, I will upgrade to a larger genset with auto start capability. Any other ideas or things you may incorporated into your generator shelter?
