What's a home generator?
A standby home generator keeps your power on during an outage. It’s installed outside your house (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically — whether you’re home or away. All within seconds of a power outage.
Fridge & Freezer
During an outage, your food is the first thing to go. That’s a lot of hard-earned cash out the window. Good news though, a Kohler generator will keep your fridge and freezer running through an outage, keeping your parishables safe.
TV, tablet, computer. These things keep you connected to the world and what you love to do. A Kohler generator will keep them powered and protected from erratic power surges.
Heating & Air Conditioning Systems
Whether it's the dead of winter or the dog days of summer, your heating and cooling systems are what keep your family comfortable and your home protected. Ensure they will remain on with a reliable generator.
Running water is a big deal - you need it for drinking, cleaning and flushing. On the other hand, if it’s running into your basement that’s another kind of big deal - really big. If your home depends on well water or a sump pump, your Kohler generator will keep everything working as it should. That means faucets, toilets, showers, washing machine, sump pump and more.
Your automatic transfer switch (ATS) monitors the electricity coming from the utility. It's working 24/7 to protect your home.
This handy little device is located on your automatic transfer switch. It tells you where your home’s power is coming from — utility or generator.
Your Kohler generator will automatically exercise itself and run diagnostic tests for 20 minutes each week to make sure it’s ready when needed.
With OnCue Generator Management System, you can manage your Kohler home generator, receive updates via text or e-mail, view real-time power operation and more. All from your computer, phone or tablet.
Every KOHLER generator is equipped with a heavy-duty, commercial-grade engine that stands up to extreme weather.
When the power fails or drops below an acceptable level (brownout), the ATS signals the generator to start. In seconds, the ATS transfers your power from the utility to the generator.
By the time you read this, your Kohler generator will have started and restored power to your home.
Unlike portable generators, KOHLER generators start and stop automatically with no need to refuel. No extension cords. No worries. No hassle.
Your generator then supplies your home with electricity until the utility power is restored.
Kohler generators endure hundreds of tests (during design and production) before they reach your home. The result is total reliability.
With PowerBoost Technology, Kohler generators can handle large starting loads like central air conditioners without dropping power to other appliances.
