Transfer Switch installation Renton

The ideal time to install a generator is before you even need one and to make sure that it will run properly and supply your home with enough energy you will also need to have a transfer switch installed. Having a home generator means that you are well prepared the next time you completely lose power and a transfer switch is a small circuit breaker panel that acts as the conduit between your home and the generator. Normally, your home draws power directly from the power company, but when there is a neighborhood or city wide outage, the energy provided by your generator is directed to your property by the transfer switch.

No matter if you have a portable generator or a standby generator, a transfer switch is required without fail. General Pros Electric are professional transfer switch installers, and if you are in need of a transfer switch installation for your home in Renton, WA, then we will not disappoint.

Generator Transfer Switch Renton

Generator transfer switches help protect your property and more. When there is a power outage, the cause could be related to many different things. Most likely it was caused by a nearby downed power line and that means that utility technicians will need to repair it. Having a transfer switch installed for your generator prevents power from backfeeding into your normal utility line when there is a power outage. This built in safety measure will protect the technicians from electricity while they are repairing the power line.

When you don’t have a generator transfer switch installed, it can drastically reduce the amount of appliances you can provide power to. Without a transfer switch, if you live in an area with frequent outages, your devices that are larger and require more energy may not be able to draw sufficient power. A transfer switch is connected to your circuit breaker when it is installed, meaning that hardwired appliances like your furnace or water heater are still able to run without interruption.
