Kohler Power Systems
Generators provide the security of knowing your home will be in full working order when your power goes off. If you live in an area where inclement weather tends to shut off your power, then consider purchasing a generator. We, at Build.com, realize that choosing the right generator can be tricky. Here we have provided a guide to purchasing our selection of Kohler generators.
Main Components of a Generator System:
A standby generator serves as your home's permanent source for power when your utility power source shuts off or goes out. This removes the inconvenience of having to pull your generator out of storage for the winter months; instead, the standby option turns on the moment you need it. Kohler designed their standby generators to restore power within 10 seconds of a power outage.
You will also need to purchase a transfer switch, which changes the power source from your utility line to your generator. This is incredibly important because it shuts off power coming from the utility line and monitors when there is a loss of power from the utility line. The transfer switch monitors and operates the generator automatically. Some Kohler standby generators come with a transfer switch; however, if it does not, then make sure you are choosing the right transfer switch for your generator.
Common Generator Accessories:
The block heater quickly raises the temperature of the engine coolant in order for the generator to start up easy and warm up quicker. By using the built-in thermostat, the block heater turns off the heater once the coolant reaches between 80 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to check which Kohler generators are compatible with the block heater.
A carburetor heater also warrants a quick engine start because it warms the carburetor if the temperature falls below 35 degrees Fahrenheit. Check to see which Kohler generators are compatible with the carburetor heater.
