Summer is a big time for storms and all that come with them: booming thunder, pounding rain, flashing lightning… and power outages. Though it’s fun to watch a thunderstorm from the inside of a powered home, a lot of residences and businesses lose their power when storms roll in. Protect against the inevitable with a Kohler generator, but first, find out why they’re such a big name in the field.
Products to Protect Your Power
Established in 1920, Kohler is the expert in generators. They provide backup power to “hospitals, nuclear power plants, even the National Weather Service.” Homeowners over all those years have raved about the reliability of the twice-inspected products put forth by this company in order to keep big appliances, electricity, heating, and more online when the main lines are down. The primary staple is the home generator, purchased by those who want to keep the power on, though there are also portable options for activities on the go (such as camping).
One quick scan of the site provides a dozen options of varying prices and kW (kilowatts), even boasting a “home generator selector” in which the size and power of the home can be submitted for a suggested, customized generator search result. Basic info on their products and the necessity of a good generator are detailed clearly: no one wants all of their groceries to go bad during an outage or to lose a television to a power surge. Making sure that a powerful and efficient generator is installed can prevent these and other unfortunate blackout side effects from happening. It can also extent beyond simple inconvenience; if a pump is keeping heavy rain from flooding your basement, you want that pump to keeping running. Some of the costs of a power outage could result in:
- $10,000 for burst or frozen pipes
- $21,000 for a flooded basement
- $500-$30,000 for mold removal
- $250-$500 for food loss
Some Kohler generators can be operated by smart phone, making the process easier than ever. In addition, they offer add-ons such as computer management systems to best manage your system remotely.
Considering the frequency of storms, particularly in the summer, it’s best to be prepared for a blackout before it happens. Get in touch with Tim Kyle Electric, Heating & Cooling for up-to-date checks and installation of Kohler generators and other products.
