Thermostats monitor indoor temperatures to adjust cooling or heating on the fly. Modern cars can detect an imminent collision and hit the brakes before disaster strikes. Tech as a whole is switching to an automatic approach to simplify and improve our lives, and it’s time for your generator to do the same. In this article, the pros at Tri-County Water Services discuss the benefits of a whole house generator automatic transfer switch vs. manual systems.

Let’s look at the benefits of installing an automatic transfer switch in your home:
Whether it’s a brief surge or a long-term power outage, investing in a generator buys you peace of mind that your life won’t be disrupted by blackouts. However, without an automatic switch, you may find yourself on the backfoot next time the lights go out.
For example, what happens if you’re not at home when the power fails? The food in your freezer will thaw out and spoil, the documents you forgot to save on your computer will disappear forever, and you’ll be left to clean up the mess.
An automatic power switch monitors your utility power, sending a signal to your generator to start running as soon as the power cuts out. Unlike a manual switch, you won’t find yourself flailing in the dark as you scramble to activate your generator.
Easy to Configure
With an automatic transfer switch, you choose – with pin-point accuracy – which systems, lights, and devices to keep powered during an outage. This will help you control the load on your unit and thus minimize the risk of damaging your generator. Additionally, you can ensure you aren’t wasting fuel on powering unnecessary appliances.
When working with electrical components, you run the risk of sustaining an electrical shock. While a mild shock won’t cause any long-term harm, numerous electrocution fatalities take place in the U.S. every year. Installing an automatic transfer switch will lower your risk of an accident as you won’t be required to interact with your device as often.
