Hurricanes, blizzards, Nor’Easters and downed trees can create unpredictable outages on Cape Cod. Often power may not be restored for many hours or sometimes even days. Next time be prepared with a permanently installed generator such as the Kohler Generator.
While dining by candlelight may be fun, when the power is out for days on end, a reliable, self- contained backup system can keep phones ringing, computers running, and heat pumping. And it is more than just convenience. When the heater is running pipes won’t freeze, and when the security system is powered intruders are held at bay. Best of all, should the power fail, modern systems power up automatically, whether you are at home asleep or across the country.
The unpredictability of outages gives stationary, permanently installed standby generators a clear advantage over their portable, gas-powered alternatives which resemble big lawn-mower engines, in look and sound. A portable has to be rolled outside, started manually, and plugged in to the house electrical system, a process that takes several minutes at least—not fun during a storm! If an outage lasts more than a few hours, a portable’s gas tank is likely to run dry. And, if nobody is home, the generator cannot be started, defeating the purpose of purchasing a generator to begin with!
A permanently installed standby generator is always ready to go, will start automatically whether or not you are home, and can run nonstop for days, fueled by a natural gas line, or tanks of propane or diesel.
Reasons to invest in a permanently installed generator:
* Peace of Mind
Power is automatically transferred to pre-determined, key circuits in your home during an outage, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in property damage.
* Convenient & Effortless
A permanent connection to your power supply automatically provides uninterrupted power to your home when the power goes out. Even if you are not home, the generator will automatically power up.
* Reliable Performance
Designed for ultimate longevity and performance, the engine is powerful enough to work with homes that have low fuel pressure, eliminating the need for a costly additional pressure regulator.
* Subtle Design & Low noise output
The power generator is relatively small and subtle yet functional for a relatively large operation. The sound level is low and will not interrupt your sleep or disturb your neighbors.
* Continuous Low-Cost Fuel Supply
Clean and environmentally friendly low-cost fuels like Natural Gas or Liquid Propane provide a safe, continuous fuel supply, and never have to be refueled by hand.
* Long term Savings
A permanently installed generator allows you to remain at home during power outages, saving you from expensive and potentially dangerous drives to hotels and restaurants. If you rely on your computer and work from home, you will be able to continue your tasks without interruption. During the winter, if the heat is out for an extended period of time, pipes can freeze and burst causing extensive damage to your home and furnishings – a generator will keep your heat running. A generator will also keep your refrigerator and freezer contents from spoiling.
