    What is a Home Generator?

    Did you know that a generator is an apparatus that transfers mechanical energy into electrical energy? A standby home generator is designed to power your home during an outage within a matter of seconds. A residential generator can provide critical power to your AC, heat, refrigerator, electronics, lights, water, security systems, and so much more. A day without power due to weather-related outages costs American households $150 billion a year. An unplanned power outage may lead to spoiled food, frozen pipes, potential flooding, mold growth, loss of heat, loss of air conditioning, and inconvenient relocation expenses. A home generator system can even increase the value of your home.  width=

    How does a Standby Home Generator Work

    A backup home generator system provides uninterrupted power security, whether you are home or away from home.  The Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) works even before the power goes out. It continuously monitors the electricity coming from the utility and works 24/7 to protect your home from an outage. The moment the power drops below an acceptable level, the ATS sends an immediate signal to start the generator. As soon as utility power is restored, the ATS automatically transfers your home to utility power, and the generator shuts off. The best part is you won’t have to lift a finger to do so. Blackouts can happen at any time, but that shouldn’t affect your daily life. With a KOHLER® home generator, you can rest easy knowing that you will have reliable power to secure your home and the goods inside it. Since a KOHLER® home generator starts and stops automatically, there is no need to refuel your unit.
