What Size Kohler Generator Do I Need For My House?

Before making a decision about home generators, it’s important to calculate emergency power need for house – and even garage and other property – requirements. You may not need every appliance, but depending on the season and the weather, you must consider everything that your home might need during the outage.

What appliances do I need to run during a power outage?

Home generators are becoming the new essential home appliance. They protect homes and families by supplying power that keeps the lights on, the air conditioner or furnace running, and food in the refrigerator and freezer safe from spoiling. They power sump pumps, medical equipment, computers, lights, and kitchen appliances. So, the first step is determining what you need running during an emergency. While you might be able to go without the mini fridge in the entertainment room, items that control the indoor climate mustn’t be overlooked. Don’t let physical size fool you. A hair dryer can use 1200 to 1875 watts all by itself, while an energy-saving LED light bulb might use as little as 6 watts.

Too small a unit may not handle a central air conditioner and keep the pumps running that keep your basement dry. Using too large of a generator is inefficient and wastes fuel.

How your home’s square footage affects what size home generator you need

The size of your home is an important factor as well. If you’d like to get a rough idea of what size Kohler generator you might need for your home, Kohler offers this quick approximation tool.
