Install a Generator Transfer Switch by Chesapeake Electric

At Chesapeake Electric, we understand that a standby generator isn’t a fit for everyone. For many Maryland residents, you just don’t lose power enough to warrant the cost of a standby generator, but you still want a solution that allows you power during the unfortunate circumstance of a power outage.

Does that sound like you? If it does, a generator manual transfer switch may be the way to go. 

With a manual transfer switch, you can designate 8-10 circuits on your electric panel that you would want to be able to power with a smaller portable generator! For a fraction of the price, you can ensure your sump pump has power, your food doesn’t spoil in the fridge, and your family is able to live comfortably while you wait for the power to return.

The Benefits of a Generator Manual Transfer Switch

No Relocating Costs

Gone are the days of having to relocate your entire family during a power outage. Having to pay for a hotel for even one night can cost several hundred dollars, and sometimes power outages last weeks or even months at a time! Having a manual transfer switch will allow you to wait in your own home for the power to come back on rather than wasting time and money on a hotel stay.

No Flooding

When utility power fails, and your basement sump pump stops running, flooding becomes more likely. Clean-up and remodels afterward can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. With a manual transfer switch, you can ensure that your sump pump will be able to function optimally, preventing damages done to your basement because of flooding.

No Spoiled Food

If the power goes out, it’s only a matter of time before the food in your refrigerator goes bad. Having to throw out all your food during a power outage is not only wasteful, but it is also costly. When you have a portable generator transfer switch, you can ensure your food stays fresh, and your bellies stay full!

Peace of Mind

Peace of mind is priceless. You can finally feel at ease knowing regardless of the power-outage situation, you have back-up power in your home when you need it the most. With just a simple plug in and a switch, your home and be back up and running while you wait for the power to return.
