Standby generators can make a huge difference in a blackout. 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. 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. There are also 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. You won’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 that 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. The switch automatically transfers power to the generator when utility power fails. Thus providing the highest protection for continuous power. Our unique active load control inside each GREEN ATS allows you to save money up front. You may be able to downsize the generator and gain ongoing savings in operating costs. It helps consume less fuel each month.
