Do You Own Your Home?
Why are we asking this? KOHLER Standby Generators are permanently installed outside of your home, so installation is not recommended on property you do not own.
*A standby generator isn't recommended for your home. Instead, we recommend a portable generator. Explore our portable generators and find the perfect one for you on our site.
What is the approximate square footage of your home?
Under 1,000 sq. ft.
1,000 - 1,600 sq. ft.
1,600 - 3,000 sq. ft.
3,000 - 5,500 sq. ft.
5,500+ sq. ft.
How are the majority of your appliances powered?
Your home is unique, and so are your backup power needs. Your home's size, property layout, the position of your service panel, and your local building codes all impact the installation of your generator. In addition, if your home does not currently have natural gas or liquid propane service, you will need to have natural gas service or a liquid propane tank installed on your property. These are not included in the cost of installation quoted by your dealer.
First, know that we handle it all for you, including all necessary permits. It's a technical process that requires professionals and specialists to ensure it's installed correctly and safely.
Here’s How Installation Works:
Most standby generator installations take just a day or two, and your KOHLER Authorized Dealer will take care of everything. They'll secure all necessary permits and coordinate a team of licensed electricians and pipefitters to make sure the job's done right.
How Much Does Installation Cost?

The cost of installation is not included in the MSRP of your generator. During your consultation, your KOHLER Authorized Dealer will give you an installation cost estimate.
The cost of generator installation varies significantly from home to home based on your home's current setup. A simple installation starts at $2,000, although costs may be substantially more based on your situation. Factors that impact the cost of installation include:
  • Automatic Transfer Switch installation
  • Accessories
  • Local building codes and permits
  • Installation labor, which varies based on your home
  • Natural gas service or liquid propane tank installation (not included in your dealer's estimate)
