Transfer Switches for Portable Generators
Because many families already have portable generators, Aiello Home Services sells and installs transfer switches for use with portable generators. An electrical transfer switch is a device that switches the source of power from one power supply to another.
For your convenience, we keep transfer switches in stock, and our licensed electricians are happy to install them for you.
Transfers typically happen between a primary power supply, such as the utility company, and a secondary power supply, such as your portable generator. The electrical transfer switch also switches power back to the primary power supply when emergency power is no longer needed. The transfer switch keeps the two power sources isolated, allowing for the safe transfer from one power source to another.
Electrical transfer switches transfer power based on power levels and actual outages. These switches constantly monitor the electrical circuit. If you have an automatic transfer switch, the switch automatically transfers power when there’s a power problem. You don’t have to do a thing! In the event of a voltage change, such as a brownout, sag, surge, or spike, the automatic transfer switch will take action. Some of the most popular portable generator types that work with transfer switches include:
- Natural Gas
- Dual Fuel
