Smart power. That is the simplest way to describe Automatic Transfer Switches for residential standby generators.
Is this a need? The short answer is YES! You, simply, cannot have backup power for your home without one! Your home power system will not know when to supply power to your home during a power outage or which circuits require power.
The Automatic Transfer Switch does ALL the thinking for you and serves as the brains of the operation.
Transfer Switches Are Always Ready!
Ready. Set. Go. Automatic Transfer Switches stay ready at a moment’s notice to transfer power FROM the generator TO the residence. They constantly monitor your home’s utility power and stand ready to start the generator should a disruption be detected.
In less than 20 seconds, your home can go from darkness to light. Most members of the family will not even notice the interruption, which is a huge bonus.
