14 KW, Natural Gas/Liquid Propane Powered Generator: Kohler 14RESA
Kohler 14RESA Generators are, technically, 14KW (Kilowatt) models that are capable of efficiently powering ‘greater-than-average’ facilities.
Moreover, these air-cooled, premium-quality machines exemplify the legendary manufacturing and engineering for which Kohler is known.
Another welcome benefit of the 14RESA is that the actual owner/operator is uniquely capable of utilizing either natural gas, or liquid propane fuel as one deems fit.
When following-up, speaking with owners to whom we’ve sold this generator, one of the more frequent compliments we receive (on behalf of Kohler, of course) is how convenient it is to decide which gas type they’ll use upon/after reception of the equipment.
Admittedly, this feature is, perhaps, non-essential for most; however, there have been multiple instances whereby customers have informed us about their intent to purchase a generator, but, were not certain which fuel-type would be most accessible in their area.
Kohler 14RESA Natural Gas Home Generators
As (briefly) aforementioned, natural gas 14RESA home generators are compatible with either this fuel-type, or liquid propane.
The fact that Kohler Generators for Home Use operate exclusively on natural gas/liquid propane makes the long-term ROI (return-on-investment) far exceed a gasoline-powered equivalent ‘hands-down’.
Furthermore, with respect to Power Capacity, this generator produces 12,000, 14,000 Watts of reliable, clean, efficient backup power.
With 12, 14KW of electrical output, the 14RESA Natural Gas/Liquid Propane Powered Generator is a prime selection for homes, businesses, or general facilities of roughly 3,500 – 5,000 ft².
The official voltage ratings for the 14RESA is: 120/240 Single-Phase Output.
The relative Amps for this model is fifty (50) for natural gas, and fifty-eight (58) as a liquid propane powered generator, respectively.
What’s more, this model is indeed Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Listed, which, in short, provides consumers an additional ‘layer’ of protection + assurance against faulty, hazardous electrical components.
Correspondingly, the equipment is elegantly encased in an anti-corrosion structure which further reduces concerns of rodent, ‘foreign-object’ intrusion(s.)
Being that Kohler Electrical 14RESA Home Generators are designed to be controlled-by one of Kohler’s ‘space-age’ Transfer Switches, the system automatically initiates when necessary (i.e. when power interruption occurs.)
Finally, this generator is equipped with a Kohler CH740, 725cc, 3600RPM Engine, which is precisely regulated, air-cooled!
The power capacities for either natural gas, liquid propane usage are detailed as follows:
(a) 12KW (12,000 Watts) for natural gas application;
(b) 14KW (14,000 Watts) when used as a propane powered generator.
Benefits Of The Kohler 14RESA Propane Powered Generator
Initially, in our opinion(s), without question, one of the most important highlights of this equipment is the ability to decide (post-order) which fuel-type will ultimately be used.
This makes it much more flexible, convenient to have options based on practical, desirous, or circumstantial situation for each unique individual.
Another great feature of this model is the automatic ‘low-oil-pressure-shutdown’ functionality built directly into the system itself…
(No additional ‘monitors, triggers, or alarms;’ when the oil-pressure gets low, the generator simply powers-off—nice work, Kohler!)
Transfer Switches Compatible With The Kohler 14RESA
14RESA Natural Gas Home Generators can be utilized with a wide variety of ‘cutting-edge’ transfer switches.
Speaking of which, a few of the more popular, ‘new era’ (RXT) Kohler Transfer Switches compatible with the 14RESA are:
(i) Kohler RXT-JFNC-0100A (Nema 3, 100 Amp Automatic Transfer Switch);
(ii) Kohler RXT-JFNC-0200A (Nema 3, 200 Amp Automatic Transfer Switch);
