Installation of Transfer Switches for Generators
Have you ever wondered how your generator knows to turn on when the power goes out? A transfer switch is a switch in your generator that allows it to turn on by itself in the event of an outage. At Milltown, we can replace a faulty switch or install one to your existing model. These switches give you added protection in the event of a power outage or emergency situation.
Generator Installation Process
A generator can be a valuable addition to any home or business, providing a reliable source of backup power in the event of an outage. If you’re considering generator installation from MillTown Plumbing, here’s what you can expect from the process:
The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our licensed and experienced electricians. They will assess your needs and recommend a generator that is appropriate for your property and power requirements.
2. Site Assessment
Once a generator is selected, the electrician will conduct a site assessment. This will determine the best location for the generator and transfer switch. They will take into account factors such as proximity to the electrical panel and fuel source. They will also ensure that there is enough clearance for safe operation.
3. Permits and Inspections
Before the installation can begin, our electrician will obtain any permits and schedule any required inspections.
The installation process typically involves the following steps:
- Mounting the generator: The generator mounts securely on a concrete pad or stable platform surface. The electrician will ensure that the generator is level and properly anchored to prevent damage or movement during operation.
- Connecting the fuel source: The electrician will connect the generator to the fuel source, whether it is natural gas, propane, or diesel.
- Wiring: The electrician will install a transfer switch to connect the generator to the electrical panel. This switch ensures that the generator can safely and automatically switch on and off as needed to power essential circuits.
- Testing: Once installation is complete, the electrician performs a series of tests to ensure that the generator functions properly. They will also ensure all circuits are connected and working correctly.
5. Maintenance and Repairs
It is important to schedule regular maintenance to ensure that your generator remains in good working condition. We can recommend a maintenance schedule and provide any necessary repairs or replacement parts as needed.
