Negatives to a whole house natural gas generator?
Having just survived 7 days of no electricity in the hottest streak of weather this summer, I am seriously considering a whole house solution to run the whole house including the A/C. I plan on using natural gas as the tap is already in place and the electric service enters the house in fairly close proximity to it. Are there any negatives to such a big thing like this aside from only needing it for maybe a dozen or so times a year?
