In storm-prone areas like Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia, heavy rain, ice, and wind can down power lines in an instant. Don’t get let your home or business become derailed when your power goes out—install a manual transfer switch and keep the lights on!
If you live in storm-prone areas like Waldorf, MD and King George, VA, heavy rains and winter snowstorms can knock the power out on whole city blocks. That’s why so many Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia residents and business owners have installed a manual transfer switch to power their home with generators. When the power goes out, not only is it an inconvenience—it can be dangerous and damaging to your home. If you own a business, the loss of power can equal a loss in sales. Installing a manual transfer switch for your generator is a great way to prevent power outages from derailing everyday life, and Generac is the #1 selling brand in the business.
If you aren’t sure how much power your home or business needs, no need to worry! There are different amps and wattage meters for manual transfer switches we install, guaranteed to fit your needs. If you aren’t sure what you will need power for during an outage, that’s okay! With a manual transfer switch, you can choose what circuits get power from your generator.
Ensure your home or business won’t go without power in bad weather by contacting John Goudie Electric today for a consultation!
A manual transfer switch is installed beside the main electrical panel in your home and connects to the circuits you’ll want powered when the power goes out. When you experience an outage, simply plug your generator into the manual transfer switch and crank it up!
You can choose which circuits get power by simply flipping the respective switches, so if you have a smaller generator and only want to power the HVAC system, you would only flip that switch on. Or if you don’t mind staying at a friend’s house but don’t want the food in your freezer to spoil, you can choose the circuit responsible for your refrigerator.
Generac transfer switches are some of the best in the business, and we install both whole-house transfer switches as well as select circuit transfer switches.
Whole House Transfer Switches: this transfer switch allows you to feed generator power to the entire load center and manually turn off selected loads up to the capacity of the generator. They include a 200 Amp utility main.
Select Circuit Transfer Switches: select-circuit transfer switches allow you to choose 6 – 16 select household circuits to power during an outage. If you decide you need more power, we can easily add more circuit breakers.
Power outages don’t happen on your schedule. They tend to happen in the middle of the night, or right at the most inopportune moments. That’s why if you live in a storm-prone area—like Southern Maryland or the Virginia coastline—you should invest in one. But even generators aren’t disaster-proof, and should the event arise that you need repairs, we’re here to help you out.
With John Goudie Electric, you can expect top-notch, fast service for your manual transfer switch installation. We’ll be in and out in a jiffy, and your home will be protected from power outages in time for the next bout of bad weather! Contact us today for an estimate on your transfer switch installation!
