The weather in New Jersey can have an unpredictable effect on the availability of power. Severe storms can easily knock out your electricity supply. When the unthinkable happens, such as the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, power can be out for days or weeks. When the lights go out, a Kohler backup generator can provide the electrical power you need to keep your household functioning until normal services are restored.
From the 8.5RES model to the powerful 125ERESB, Kohler generators are available to meet your home’s emergency power needs. All of our backup generators are operated by LP vapor or natural gas, which means they’ll be able to produce power as long as the fuel source is available. Back-up generators, sometimes called standby generators, are usually classified into one of three types, depending on the amount of power they produce.
Essential circuit generators provide power only for the circuits you need to power basic household equipment. Smart circuit generators produce enough electricity to keep your home functioning at near-normal levels, operating most of the appliances and equipment you need in rotation or with restricted usage.
Whole-house generators produce enough electricity to keep your home and its equipment operating at normal levels during a prolonged utility outage.
Consult with your local trusted HVAC service provider for help determining the amount of power you’ll need from a Kohler backup generator. The backup generator you purchase should be large enough to produce more power than the minimum amount needed to keep your family safe and your home functional during the outage. This extra capacity ensures you’ll have enough electricity to meet your needs and any additional demands that may occur.
Since backup generators are complex, they should be installed by a qualified professional to ensure reliable operation and compliance with safety standards.
