Residential Generator Installation


If you're like most, you're probably wondering what's involved with a generator installation. Well, you've come to the right place.

One thing to keep in mind: this is not a DIY project. It all begins with a home visit with your KOHLER dealer.

They’ll help you choose the perfect size generator, the right fuel source and the best installation locations for your generator and transfer switch.


KOHLER dealers are carefully selected and trained to ensure your experience exceeds your expectations. Friendly, helpful and ready to serve, KOHLER dealers are a cut above the rest.

Most installations take a day or two. And your KOHLER dealer will take care of it all including handling local permits and ordinances so you don’t have to. They’ll coordinate a team of licensed electricians and pipefitters to make sure the job’s done right.

Here’s how it works:

  1. The electrician will install your transfer switch first.
  2. After that's installed, the team will move your generator in place.
  3. Electric lines will then be connected from your transfer switch to your generator.
  4. Once electric is hooked up, your pipefitter will make the proper connections from the fuel source to the generator.
  5. After electric and fuel is hooked up, your generator is ready to start and protect your home or business.
