What Is a Generator Transfer Switch?
A generator transfer switch is a device that allows you to safely switch from using your panel to your generator in case of a power outage. The two main types of transfer switches include generator manual transfer switches and automatic transfer switches.
The transfer switch that you will need will depend on the type of generator you have. If you have a portable generator, you will likely have a portable generator transfer switch that is manual. Automatic transfer switches are often installed with whole-home standby generators.
Are Transfer Switches Necessary?
A transfer switch is necessary for the safety of your electrical system and utility workers. If you don’t have an automatic or manual transfer switch, backfeeding can occur when electricity created by your generator flows back into the utility power grid. This can be dangerous for any utility workers who are working on the power lines. This backfeeding can also damage your electrical system and pose a fire hazard. Bringing in an electrician to install a generator transfer switch is the best way to prevent this from happening.
Transfer switches are also a good idea for portable generators because they improve safety while also making it more convenient to power up your portable generator. Rather than having to use extension cords to plug in the generator, you can plug it directly into the transfer switch at the electrical panel.
Our Generator Transfer Switch Installation Services
Our generator transfer switch installation services will begin with an assessment to determine the size and location of the transfer switch that you want to have installed. Usually, transfer switches are installed near your electrical panel. Next, we install the transfer switch so that it can be easily accessed. The installation itself involves running wires from your switch to your main electrical panel and ensuring that the switch is properly grounded and secured.
Then, we will connect the generator to the switch and test the generator to make sure that everything is working properly. If installing an automatic transfer switch, we may turn off power to your main electrical panel to ensure that it turns on automatically.
