Professional installation of a transfer switch costs on average € 200 to € 400 because electricians charge € 59 to € 75 per hour, and this is a 3 to 4 hour job. The units themselves are priced in the range of €180 to €225. Transfer switches are installed near the main switch of your home and direct current from a portable or standby generator to select devices.
