Kohler Generators in Lowell
How an Electric Generator Works & Why You Need One
Generators offer you the opportunity to access electricity in situations when you would not have had access to it otherwise. Homeowners and business owners alike flock to them for their wide range of abilities. In terms of home uses, a home generator is a reliable means of keeping your power on during an outage. These powerful, useful machines convert mechanical energy to electricity for transmission and distribution. It will come to your rescue in situations like hurricanes, tornados, power outages, and other incidents.
Large-scale power outages are becoming more common in the northeast U.S. According to Climate Central, stronger storms are happening more often in the Massachusetts area, which is putting more stress on the power grid. In fact, Climate Central found a 67% increase in national major power outages from weather-related events since 2000, and the greatest increase occurred in the northeast U.S. at a 159% increase. In addition to a reliable alternative during a power outage, another benefit of a home generator is that it runs on propane or natural gas, so there is no need to refuel them.
Benefits of a Kohler Generator
The Kohler® generator has earned a reputation as a reliable, powerful, and consistent home generator that stands the test of time in value. Kohler goes the extra mile to deliver that value, with a limited 5-year, 2000-hour protection warranty on all of the standalone models. Plus, you have the option of a corrosion-resistant steel enclosure that is built to last. Kohler also conducts major quality testing on the generators through the design and manufacturing process. Perhaps that is why the generators have received several awards, including the Most Valuable Product (MVP) Award by Building Products magazine.
Furthermore, Kohler’s generators are commercial grade, so many of them automatically have the ability to sense and switch on in the event of a power loss. Therefore, if you are unfortunate enough to deal with a power outage, your power will be restored momentarily. This can be more helpful than you might realize. After all, many power outages are due to inclement weather, and you won’t want to go outside and brave those conditions to turn on your generator.
Featured Types of Kohler Generators
One of the most popular generators that Kohler produces is the 20kW for backup power, which includes an automatic transfer switch. This hardworking machine will keep your power running, so you can count on your appliances and security system when you need them most. If your home is 2500 square feet or less, a 20kW generator should suit your needs well, especially if you have gas heat and hot water.
The 10kW generator is another great option and offers many of the same benefits as the 20kW generator. It will keep your appliances working, heat or AC running, or security system on in your time of need. It provides high quality, reliable power for your home. The primary difference between the 20kW generator and the 10kW generator is the number of appliances and other systems they will run, but a 10kW generator typically has enough power to run the most critical household appliances.
If you are ready to give yourself the peace of mind that comes with a backup generator, Kohler has the reliable options you need. For questions about generator installation in Lowell or to get a quote, call A. Fagundes Plumbing & Heating Inc. at (978) 350-5522 or contact us online.
