Types of Transfer Switches to Consider

The process of installing a generator and the various parts that go along with it can be confusing. Our goal is to make the process as simple as possible and to address your questions so you can make a well-informed decision. We can work with you to figure out which type of whole home transfer switch will best meet your needs. Each type of transfer switch may be available in a wide range of makes and models by different generator companies, all of which we can discuss in detail. There are a couple types of transfer switches to consider.

Automatic Transfer Switches

An automatic transfer switch is typically used in a home with a permanent backup generator. This allows you to automatically get power from your generator until the power comes back on from the utility company.

Manual Transfer Switches

A manual transfer switch must be manually powered on and off. Although it is less expensive than the other option, it means that you must be home and available to switch it on and off when needed.

Transfer Switch Installation & Maintenance

In addition to installing whole-home generator transfer switches in Seattle, we also offer maintenance and repair services for all generator equipment. Your transfer switch should be maintained regularly, as it is a critical part of your generator system and ensures its operation. At Seatown Electric Plumbing Heating and Air, we install, service, and repair transfer switches for customers living all the way from Snohomish County to King County.
