Automatic vs. Manual: Which Switch Is Best?
A manual transfer switch system requires input from the homeowner before backup power is activated. Automatic transfer switches monitor the electric utility power and react to any fluctuations or changes that signal an imminent outage. Both switches can be configured to power only certain circuits in your home to ensure you don’t exceed your generator’s capacity. For most homeowners, we recommend an automatic switch as this set-it-and-forget-it solution will let you keep the lights on at all times.
