What is a transfer switch?

What is a transfer switch?

A transfer switch is a device that is fed by both utility and generator power. It isolates the two types of power from each other so a back feed does not occur. National Electrical Code requires a device like this if two types of power are going to feed the house. The Symphony™ transfer switch features patented controls that have the ability to manage up to two Central air conditioners in addtion to your whole house. The entire line of Symphony™ power management devices - transfer switches and power management systems - comply with all 2009 NEC code requirements.
