Installing Your Kohler Home Generator
October 11, 2018
Hurricane season is well underway in Southwest Florida and we’ve been receiving requests for home generator installation to help prepare homes for upcoming storms. However, when it comes to installing a whole-home generator, the process really should begin much earlier in the year.
You might be ready to install a generator in your home but aren’t sure where to start. One thing to keep in mind about generator installation is that it is not a DIY project, but by working with a certified generator dealer, we can make the process simple and easy for you. Learn more about the process of how generator installation works with Empowered Global here.
How Does A Generator Installation Work?
The first step of generator installation begins with a home visit from your SWFL Kohler dealer. We will help you choose the right size, fuel source, the and best location for your generator and transfer switch in your home.
Most generator installations take a day or two and will be done by a team of qualified licensed electricians. However, it’s important to consider all the other steps that must be taken before installation begins. For example, to install a whole-home generator you will need to acquire the proper permits (and we know that is not always the easiest process!). This is why we recommend having a whole-home generator installed WELL before hurricane season begins (June 1).
What Else Do I Need to Know About A Generator Installation?
You may have additional questions about what goes into a generator installation, such as cost, permits, and maintenance. Installation costs for your Kohler home generator will vary significantly depending on the easy or difficulty of installation, and your fuel source. Simple installations can start at $2,000 but could be considerably more based on the situation in your home. For an accurate quote, we recommend an individual site survey.
If you are worried about obtaining the right permits for a generator in your home, your Kohler dealer will handle local permits and ordinances to relieve the need for you to do so. When it comes to upkeep, certified Kohler dealers also offer periodic maintenance to you after installation, which will prolong the life of your generator.
