    Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS)

    Q: Which brand do you sell?

    A: We can sell you almost any brand. Our preferred brand is GE Zenith.

    Q: Do we have to shut down our building for you to diagnose our problem?

    A: Usually not. Some problems may require a shutdown, but we will do everything possible to minimize the inconvenience.

    Q: Do you recommend and sell "bypass" type switches?

    A: Yes and Yes. This type of switch is highly recommended; it makes the required annual switch maintenance much less disruptive.

    Q: Do you have parts for all switches, allowing prompt repair on 1 call?

    A: No. There are just too many switches with too many parts, like other products of this specialized nature. We do carry the common parts and have perfected a system that allows us to obtain what’s needed quickly.
