As many individuals and business organizations struggle with the rising cost of goods, there are few sectors that remain unaffected by inflation and supply chain issues. As many HVAC manufacturers have increased prices this year, as well as related sectors, so too have generator manufacturers. As far as the residential generator sector goes, the two main manufactures, Kohler & Generac have begun raising prices on their generator products, namely whole home generators.
On average, generator prices have risen up to 20% YoY.
There are multiple factors causing generator price increases. After careful analysis, we have determined the major factors leading to some price increases.
When looking to buy a new generator for your home, it is important to understand where they are manufactured to ensure that you are not unnecessarily paying the extra costs of logistics or supply chain sourcing. If you live in the United States, it is usually best to find a generator made in the US. However, if you live in Europe or Asia, it is typically a better solution to find a product manufactured closer to your own region. This can help reduce the delay in receiving the equipment, as well as reduce the overhead of shipping costs.
When it comes to American manufacturers, two of the most trusted generator brands are Kohler & Generac. Both companies manufacture generators and other products in Wisconsin.
Depending on the type of equipment you are looking for, many portable generators can be purchased at local hardware supply stores, while whole home, standby, & backup generators can be purchased from an electrical service provider such as Paschal Air, Plumbing & Electric. As an official Kohler & Generac dealer, we install and service generators in Northwest Arkansas, The River Valley, Central Arkansas, and Missouri. Ready to purchase a generator for your home?
