Title: Buying a Home Backup Generator is a Bit Like Buying Wiper Blades

Have you ever tried to drive through a rainstorm with worn-out wiper blades? As you squinted through the windshield to make out the road, you may have cursed to yourself, “I promised I was going to replace those blades the last time it rained like this.” But you didn’t because the rain stopped, and the problem went away.

The last time the power went out, you thought “I need a home generator.” Maybe you were worried about losing expensive freezer food and burst water pipes, or worse. So, you made a few calls and checked a few websites. No one had any generators in stock because the weather was bad and everyone just like you had already bought them.

The worst time to buy a home generator is when the bad weather has hit. Demand is high and installation time is needed. Ask any backup power technician when they’re busiest and they’ll tell you during winter or storm season. If you considered purchasing a residential home generator when you really could have used it, consider purchasing that generator now.

Power Systems West offers backup power solutions with automatic transfer switches and remote monitoring so when your power goes down, your back-up power turns on.  Power is restored instantly to all your critical home appliances: water heater, HVAC, refrigerator, lights and cell phone chargers.  Across seven Western states PSW has five parts and service centers and a network of more than 200 dealers. We are an authorized distributor for KOHLER, the trusted name for reliability and quality in back-up power generation.  Kohler’s Home Generator line-up can be found by visiting or on by visiting our website Product Finder.  Kohler Home Generators include LPG, Natural Gas and Diesel options along with Single Phase or Three Phase.  Depending on your power needs generator sizes range from: 6 kW, 10 kW, 12 kW, 14 kW, 20 kW, 24 kW, 30 kW, 38 kW, 40 kW, 60 kW, 80 kW, 100 kW, 125 kW and 150 kW.

Don’t wait for that next rainstorm to remind you that you still haven’t replaced your wiper blades. And, don’t wait for the power to go out again to remind yourself that you need a reliable backup power with a KOHLER home generator.
