Automatic vs Manual Transfer Switches

There are many ways to properly supply emergency power to your home or business.  A transfer switch is used to switch over from utility power to your generators power.  Transfer switches should only be installed by a licensed electrician trained on generator installation.  If a transfer switch is improperly installed, damage to the generator, home or business, equipment, and even utility equipment or personal can accrue.  Manual transfer switches allow the user to start there emergency generator and manual flip a heavy duty switch to disconnect the utility power and connect to the generators power.  The benefit to a manual type transfer switch is usually the ease of installation, cheaper cost, and reliability.  The downfall of a manual transfer switch is that person must be present to engage or disengage the switch.  This requires a person to be onsite to perform the transfer of power.  Automatic transfer switches are extremely useful and beneficial part of a good generator installation.  Automatic switches do not require a person to present when emergency power is needed.  This transfer of power happens without human interruption all by itself and no one needs to be present.  The automatic transfer can be extremely important when supplying power to items such as sump pumps, heating, wells, medical equipment such as oxygen machines and various breathing machines.

A great example is a quote from a recent installation, “Our basement always seemed to flood when we went out of town, without a doubt we would go away for the weekend and a thunder storm would temporary knock out power to our home during a period of heavy rain.  I have a portable generator but I never had to use it while home.  Go on vacation and Murphys law shows up at our house.  Delivering heavy rains and a no power situation creating the perfect storm.  I have a battery backup sump but we live in a low lying area and it can never keep up for more than 30 minutes or so.  Since having a emergency standby generator and a automatic transfer switch installed by Custom Electrical Services I have not had any more flooding in our basement and we go out of town worry free.” Robert G.
