How do you use a transfer switch?

First, ensure that all circuit breakers are in the off position. Next, ensure the generator cord connects to the transfer switch or control panel. Turn on your generator and allow it to warm up. After the generator is up and running, change the transfer switch breakers to the generator position. From there, you can activate the circuits you need to use. Be sure to turn on circuits one at a time to avoid overloading the generator.

What size transfer switch do I need?

Transfer switches typically match the amp measurement on your generator or main breaker. For example, if you have a 100-amp generator outlet, you will need a 100-amp transfer switch.

How far can generators be from the transfer switch?

The standard distance between the generator and the transfer switch is between 60 and 70 feet. This distance usually helps to cut down on generator noise and conserves energy, as electrical currents weaken the farther they travel.
