This is a question for my house which is on the grid but I wasn't sure where else to ask this.
I have wanted for some time to install a manual transfer switch so I can run the house off generator power when there's an outage. I assume this could be done for pennies on the dollar by someone who actually knew what they were doing. I have a basic knowledge of house reno's and have done lighting, etc, but not super comfortable tinkering with the breaker box.
So Lowes has this item for sale for $250:
Anybody familiar with this? Is it easy to install? I assume in return for the cost they make it simple for you?
