6 Benefits of Installing a Home Generator

Benefits of Installing a Home Generator

Knowing you have a Plan B when unexpected power failures take you by surprise is the kind of peace of mind that every homeowner should have. Fueled by clean-burning natural gas or liquid propane, Kohler® residential backup generators allow you to continue life as usual for days, even during a blackout.

Who Should Install a Kohler® Home Generator?

A Kohler® backup generator serves as a type of insurance policy. You never know if or when you’re going to need it, but you want to be sure it’s there if you do. Whether you find it worth the investment will depend on your budget, tolerance for power outages, and your personal situation.

For some, having a backup home generator is a no-brainer. These include homeowners who depend on electricity for medical equipment or computers for stay-at-home work, and those who live in areas with frequent blackouts. That being said, having a Kohler® backup generator installed by Wenger Electric offers numerous benefits for any homeowner.

Benefits of Installing a Kohler® Home Generator

  • Delivers power automatically and quickly when a blackout strikes
  • Allows you to operate your home, including your HVAC system, TVs, computers, appliances, and more
  • Allows you to maintain control of your comfort and safety levels
  • Protects your home from risky voltage surges and fluctuations when your power returns
  • Functions safely during both natural and man-made disasters
  • Affords you peace of mind by ensuring you and your loved ones are safe

Benefits of Clean-Burning Natural Gas and Liquid Propane for Kohler® Generators

In addition to the above benefits of having a backup home generator in general, there are also valuable benefits of natural gas and propane generators specifically. However, it’s important to consider which of these fuel sources is best for your needs. Often, your choice will be dependent on the location of your home, with most homes in urban settings powered by natural gas for space heating.

However, homes not on a gas service network typically run on propane because extending a natural gas line to them is cost-prohibitive. In addition to less expensive startup costs, an added benefit of owning a backup generator that runs on propane is that the fuel source can be stored in a tank on your property.

Other benefits of having a backup generator fueled by propane or natural gas include:

  • Natural gas and propane are non-toxic, colorless, and tasteless with odor added for detection purposes.
  • Neither natural gas nor propane goes bad over time.
  • Both are affordable, abundant, and convenient.

Finally, let’s look at the special features that make Kohler® backup home generators stand out from the rest:

  • Exceptional peak motor-starting capacity
  • Quiet 3-fan cooling system
  • 8kW to 150kW +
  • 5- and 10-year extended warranty options
  • Corrosion-resistant aluminum enclosures
