3 Reasons it May be Time For a Power Analysis For Your Commercial Building

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

Is it time for a power analysis for your San Jose commercial building?

A power analysis helps you protect your property and investments by making sure your wiring system is sound. Using special thermal equipment, trained electricians pinpoint hotspots in your walls indicating the potential for an electrical fire. Your power analysis team also checks your ground wires, system capacity, and more.

With a power analysis, San Jose business owners have greater peace of mind. You can rest assured your facilities are ready for the future. This is all the more important as the temperature climbs. Commercial buildings can face steep power demands, and local utilities aren’t always reliable.

Wondering about scheduling a power analysis San Jose can count on?

There are a few situations where a power analysis should be performed right away:

1. You Are Negotiating a Commercial Lease

Commercial rent in San Jose is getting more expensive by the month. What’s more, landlords now put the squeeze on their commercial tenants by re-negotiating more often. What used to take three or five years now happens every other year. A power analysis can disclose important information about the electrical system, which landlords may need to upgrade or update.

San Francisco Bay Area Battery Backup Power

Is your business protected against the unexpected?

Here in California, virtually all commercial and residential structures are required to have an appropriate fire suppression system. And a majority of small and mid-sized businesses use an alarm system, access control, and other methods to deter property crime.

Yet, there are still many business owners who are taking their chances on a much more common problem: Prolonged blackouts and other electrical issues.

As the temperature climbs and building systems such as HVAC draw more power, your wiring works harder to deliver the support your equipment needs. If you don’t have a Bay Area battery backup power solution, you could find yourself sitting in the dark.

Bay Area Battery Backup Power Isn’t Just for Major Blackouts

Interest in Bay Area battery backup power spiked a few years back when unexpected blackouts ordered by PG&E introduced the phrase “public safety power shutoff” to the Golden State’s vernacular.

These blackouts were long, poorly planned, and often struck without warning.

With a relatively uneventful start to 2022, lots of companies have pulled back on their plans to introduce Bay Area battery backup power. But now’s the time to take a closer look – while you have the perfect opportunity to source and install the right system.

5 Tenets of Uninterruptible Power Supply

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

An uninterruptible power supply is an incredibly versatile piece of equipment that can ensure business continuity in the Bay Area. When electricity from your provider is cut off for any reason, the UPS kicks into action and delivers the power you need with its built-in array of batteries.

Here are the five core tenets to know to get the most from an uninterruptible power supply:

What are the 5 Core Tenets of Uninterruptible Power Supply? 

1. Size the System Correctly to Meet Your Needs

A business UPS is much larger and more sophisticated than the kind available to consumers. You can choose a smaller system to safeguard sensitive computer equipment or a large one that will allow your operations to continue as normal for several hours. Think ahead and choose the right option for you.

2. Have a UPS Maintenance Plan in Place

UPS maintenance is divided into weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual tasks. The maintenance routine must include battery testing to verify reliable power delivery. The fastest and easiest way to extend the life of your UPS is to enter a regular maintenance contract with a trusted team of UPS engineers.

3. Understand the Risks of Your System

All industrial batteries can be a safety hazard. Some UPS systems are very secure and self-contained, while others require special precautions. When the system is installed, be sure its location minimizes risks and that your entire team is informed about what to do (and not to do) around it.
