Commercial Electrician Winter Inspection, Maintenance & Repair Services Kansas City
A commercial electrician provides an essential service to commercial facilities with a wide range of electrical services including comprehensive inspections, safety testing, data/phone installations, fire alarm panel control installations, equipment wiring for commercial retail and sanctuary projects and much more. Business owners and managers are responsible for safeguarding the property, including preventing accidents and avoiding costly repairs of faulty electrical systems and production equipment. Electricians can keep the property safe, in proper operating condition and ensure uninterrupted operations.
Winter weather can put extra strain on your electrical systems with all the various machinery, lighting and equipment that is required. It’s important to make sure it is all properly maintained, in particular items that continue to consume power when turned off but are still plugged in, like backup power systems and computer equipment.
Power outages that occur due to icing, heavy snow, tornadoes and high winds are not uncommon in this area of the Midwest. If your facility is anything like many others across town, it probably won’t stand up to a sustained power failure. In fact, most commercial properties don’t have an adequate backup power supply to keep things running.
An uninterrupted power supply (UPS) system offers guaranteed power protection for connected electronics when there is a power outage or the electricity fluctuates outside safe levels. A UPS will instantly provide clean battery backup power and surge protection for plugged-in, sensitive equipment. A commercial electrician will closely inspect UPS systems, making sure there are no frayed wires or other damage, and ensure they remain functional and safe for use.
Malfunctioning electrical panels are also common during the winter months. Heating systems and the use of portable heaters put additional strain on the electrical panel, resulting in tripped breakers, flickering lights and power surges. Machinery and equipment, computers and other electronics can be irreparably damaged from a sudden power surge. Unstable wiring can cause fires resulting in significant loss. A commercial electrician can upgrade to a larger panel that is sufficient for powering all your needs, and old, worn out wiring can be replaced.
Is your commercial property prepared to withstand a power outage? What will happen if a major storm hits that causes a large-scale power failure? Things can get serious very quickly. For instance, area hospitals losing power can result in loss of human life when support systems fail. Traffic lights quit working when the city’s power grid goes out. Elevators in high-rise buildings stop mid-floor, trapping people inside. (Many of you may remember the blackout in New York City in 2003 that caused city-wide havoc).
With winter now upon us, property owners and managers can get ahead of weather-related power outages and equipment failures by calling a commercial electrician to conduct inspections and safety testing of wiring systems and electrical equipment that can be affected by severe weather. No matter whether it’s a manufacturing plant, data center, telecom plant, agricultural operation, hospital or another type of commercial building, there should be a plan in place to deal with power outages of all types, from short term to extended.
Now is the time to have a commercial electrician assess your facility and ensure the electrical systems can withstand a power outage so operations won’t be interrupted for a prolonged period of time, as well as prevent expensive damages to equipment.
