What is an Automatic Transfer Switch?

In today's world, a consistent power supply is not just a luxury but a necessity. With the growing dependence on electrical gadgets and appliances, any interruption in power can create a ripple effect of problems. That's where an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) comes into play, acting as a hero during those unexpected power outages. Sunny, your trusted air conditioning, plumbing, and electrical service and installation contractor in the Coachella Valley, is here to help you understand how an ATS works and why it can be an essential addition to your home.

What is an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS)?

An ATS is a device that automatically transfers power from the main supply to a backup generator in case of a power failure. It ensures that your essential appliances and systems continue to run smoothly without interruption. But how does it do this? Let's dive into the details.

How Does an ATS Work?

1. Monitoring Power Supply: The ATS is continually monitoring the power coming from the utility company. If there is any interruption or failure in this supply, the ATS detects it within seconds.

2. Starting the Generator: Upon detecting a power failure, the ATS sends a signal to the backup generator to start.

3. Switching the Load: Once the generator is up and running, the ATS switches the electrical load from the main supply to the generator. This transition is so seamless that you may not even notice the switch.

4. Transferring Back to Main Supply: When the power from the utility company is restored, the ATS switches the load back to the main supply and turns off the generator. It then resumes monitoring the main power supply, ready to leap into action again if needed.
