Generac Power Systems Launches HomeLink Upgradeable Manual Transfer Switch

2/6/2015

HomeLink allows homeowners to easily switch to portable generator power during outages, and upgrade to an automatic home backup generator at a later time.

Generac Power Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of backup power generators and engine-powered tools, announced today it has expanded its residential transfer switch product line with the addition of the HomeLink Upgradeable Manual Transfer Switch.

With a push of a button, this versatile, innovative transfer switch allows homeowners to easily harness the power of their portable generator to power hard wired circuits in their home. And when homeowners decide to upgrade to an automatic home backup generator, HomeLink is designed to allow electricians to simply change out the subpanel, conveniently preparing the pre-wired switch for an automatic home generator to backup essential circuits (max 11 kW). This saves homeowners money since all the circuits have already been wired.

“This is a great product for homeowners because it provides an affordable and safe solution for backup power with a portable generator,” said Brian Sell, Senior Product Manager, Generac Power Systems.  “Another benefit is the versatility it offers to upgrade to a Generac automatic home backup generator later.”

As with other Generac transfer switches, HomeLink is a pre-wired electrical device that is installed next to a home’s utility panel. During an outage, it allows a backup generator to deliver power to hard-wired appliances, such as a furnace, refrigerator, or well pump. Power indicator lights show homeowners when they have utility power or generator power.

Customers can choose from three different models. All three models include eight circuits but can hold a maximum of ten. Each switch comes standard with a five year limited warranty.
HomeLink is available through all participating Generac distribution partners. To find an outlet near you, click here or call 1-888-GENERAC.
