Chances are you’ve been through an Indiana blackout before – but hopefully it didn’t last too long. Do you ever wonder about how your family would handle a lengthy power outage? When severe weather hits utility companies are swamped so restoring power to all the affected areas may take more time than you’d like. Installing a backup generator for your home can keep the lights on, as well as all the electrical devices your family depends on.
We proudly offer Eaton standby generators which continually monitor your home’s connection to the local electric utility. Any power outage will cause the system to automatically switch to generator power until local power is restored. Homeowners can obtain levels of power suitable for running specific applications, such as sump pumps and refrigerators, up to all applications for complete whole-home or office comfort.
An automatic transfer switch is not only a convenience, but can be a big help. Even if you are not home when the power fails, your generator will start up automatically so you don’t risk food spoilage, sump pump failure or other expensive problems. Your generator should only be plugged into this transfer switch, never directly into your home’s wiring system or outlets; doing so can create back feed (power flowing the opposite direction from the usual flow) which may cause injury, fires, and other dangers.
Eaton’s Automatic Transfer Switches guarantee reliable, seamless power when outages occur. They automatically transfer power to the generator when utility power fails, providing the highest protection for continuous power. Our unique active load control inside each GREEN ATS allows you to save money up front by downsizing the generator to purchase, and provides ongoing savings in operating costs, by consuming less fuel each month.
