Generac Power Systems Launches HomeLink Upgradeable Manual Transfer Switch
New manual transfer switch allows homeowners to easily switch to portable generator power during outages; upgrade to an automatic home backup generator at a later time.
Generac 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. Once homeowners decide to upgrade to an automatic home backup generator, HomeLink is designed to allow electricians to simply change out the associated subpanel, conveniently preparing the pre-wired switch for use with an automatic home generator, to provide backup power to essential circuits (max 11 kW). This saves homeowners money, since all the circuits have already been appropriately wired.
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 will show homeowners when their loads are being actively powered by utility 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. Find an outlet near you or call 1-888-GENERAC.
