Product Overview

The Reliance Controls single-circuit 15 Amp furnace transfer switch is designed for use with generators equipped standard 5-15, 15 Amp power outlets.

It can be used on any 15 Amp 120-Volt forced-air furnace circuit. Simply plug a standard grounded extension cord into a power outlet on your generator and into the flanged inlet plug included with the transfer switch or hardwire to a remote power inlet box.
  • Indicator light illuminates the front of the switch under generator power

Will this work with a Westinghouse IGen 4500 inverter generator with 3700 running watts?

Yes it will. However this single circuit transfer switch is well below your Generators capability. If you only want to have a single circuit operating off your Generator then this all you need.

Depends what gage wiring you are using on the transfer switch. I used it on a furnace 20amp. so use at least a 20amp wiring or 12 gage.

I replaced the NORMAL light switch that is next to my furnace with this So I can also turn the circuit off from my panel and then have the option to change to Generator with this. Also the normal switch i had did not have a fuse.. This does.

Quick delivery. Packaged with all parts. Plenty of extra length wire. Relatively easy install. Tested first with regular extension cord and then with generator power. Piece of mind that we are ready for an unexpected outage.

"Had this installed when electricians replaced my panel so I could power my furnace fan with a generator. I am pretty handy with electrical but left it for them. Installation is quite easy though. You essentially just reroute the hot through the switch and put all neutral and ground wires on the ground bar. I attached a picture of the set up with the open panel. The red hot from the switch goes to your breaker, black goes to the circuit. The switch is easy to use; all power for the circuit goes through it and I keep it on ""LINE"" when the panel is powering the circuit and ""GEN"" for when a generator is powering it. According to the instructions, you can keep a power generator plugged in when you switch. I did and it worked fine. The light on the switch turns on when it has generator power. This is a very convenient product that homeowners should have on their panel for important circuits."

Simple and straight forward
Installed at the furnace instead of at my power panel since the panel is in a bedroom closet and I didn't want to tear up the Sheetrock to do it. See Picture. Added yellow 12/2 wire between new duplex outlet box and furnace. Wired transfer switch using the included flex conduit to the outlet box. Made all connections in the outlet box. End result: My UV air purifier light is on the protected circuit along with the furnace. It all works quite well, and I'm thinking of getting another transfer switch for a different circuit that I'd like to protect. Took maybe 20 minutes to think about how I wanted to install this, a trip to the local store for the outlet and box, and about an hour to install and clean up the area. I like it, and it's clean and simple. Mounted everything high up on the wall to keep it out of the way, but still reachable when I need it.

Unit works well. The description on HD website was not complete for my application. I was able to get the proper installation instructions from the manufacturer. I probably should have had a licensed electrician install it but I was able to do it after getting correct instructions. I have very basic understanding of circuits bu do not know about the components of.my furnace.

The Reliance transfer switch with older furnace heaters is great but newer furnaces have computer circuitry so the rough current from most generators won't work. You would need an inverter generator.
