Although the generator creates the power, the transfer switch is really the core of your generator system. It is an electrical panel that allows you to safely connect a generator to your home’s electrical circuits and is permanently installed near your main circuit breaker panel. It constantly monitors incoming utility power and determines when a true power outage is occurring, switching from utility power to emergency generator power and back again when utility power returns. Options include transfer switches that provide power to only essential circuits or every circuit for whole-house coverage, and some allow for prioritization of optional circuits or load shedding, such as heating and cooling.
By manufacturing our own transfer switches, we ensure they integrate seamlessly with our generators for the perfect system. We offer more options than any other manufacturer to ensure you can customize the exact system you need. Whether it’s essential circuit coverage, load shedding or complete whole house coverage, there is a Generac transfer switch for your application.
