Backup Generator


Residential backup generators are installed outside your home just like your AC unit. In fact, most models are as quiet as an air conditioner, so there’s no issue with noise. If your home has existing gas service or propane lines, installation is easy. Our master plumbers will connect the generator to your supply lines, and our electricians will install an automatic transfer switch that alerts the generator when an outage is detected and when your service is restored.

Kohler Standby Generators for Homes and Businesses

Whole-home generators have long been one of the most desirable upgrades among homeowners. With rising energy demand and an aging grid, power outages are increasingly common, which means that generators are more valuable than ever. Thanks to improved technology, standby generators are surprisingly affordable.

Choose from models with capacities between 8 kW and 48 kW or more depending on your budget and whether you’re powering essential circuits or your entire house. Backup generators start automatically and run continuously using your natural gas or propane supply. They look like an air conditioner, and they’re just as quiet. If you’ve been thinking about a generator, now is a great time to invest in your peace of mind.
