Manual Generator Switch Installation To Power Just What You Need
Installing an EZ Generator Switch gives you flexible control over what appliances to power during an outage. Generators with automatic transfer switches are expensive and don't allow you to only use the lights or furnace.
The manual generator switches that we install will operate only the systems you need. An added benefit is that you can purchase a smaller, less expensive generator.
We commonly install generator switches for the furnace, a few lights, and the hot water heater, but it's all up to you.
The EZ Generator Switch is the most affordable and efficient generator connecting manual transfer switch on the market. They are the only switch in the United States & Canada that are matched to your exact generator. The switches are safe and code compliant and conform to UL Standard 1640 and is certified to CAN/CSA Std. C22.2 #14.
Why Not Just Hotwire The Furnace?
One of the biggest reasons to install a manual generator switch is to easily power just the furnace during a power outage.
Some people try to hotwire the furnace instead. It is much safer and more affordable than burning out the furnace if we install a manual generator switch.
- Safe way to power the furnace
- For portable generators
- For gas & electric furnaces
How Many Switches Do I Need?
That depends on what you want to power during an outage. You'll need a switch for each circuit or just one if you want to power an individual appliance like the furnace.
Where Are Manual Generator Switches Installed?
Our electricians install manual generator switches on the electric panel of the house. One switch will power one circuit, so you may need more than one depending on what you want to power.
We can also install a dedicated switch directly on an appliance itself. This is a great idea if you only need the furnace.
How To Use The Generator Switch
All you will need to do to operate the generator is:
- Plug a 12 gauge extension cord into the inlet and then to the generator
- Turn the switch on to power the lights, heat, water heater, or any other appliance.
To turn the generator off:
- Disconnect the extension cord
- Turn the switch off
Who Can Install An EZ Generator Switch?
Manual Generator Switches should only be installed by a licensed electrician. It is all too easy to burn out an appliance or the electrical circuits in the home if they are not installed right. DIY electrical work is the cause of many house fires and death by electric shock.
