Does Your Bay Area Business Need a Power Analysis?

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

A power analysis provides you with the insight to know whether your existing wiring system will safely meet your electrical needs now and in the future. During a California power analysis, an experienced team will review your capacity, wiring, and grounding.

California businesses love a power analysis because it enables them to resolve underlying issues that could lead to thousands of dollars in damage if an electrical fire takes place. It also ensures they can make any adjustments needed in their power system so their future growth plans go smoothly.

That said, we know many Bay Area businesses have never considered a power analysis.

We encourage you to think of a power analysis as part of the maintenance plan that keeps your facility running strong, especially if you have mission critical equipment that can’t afford to go down. California commercial properties are in greater danger of unexpected power outages than ever before.

Wildfire Conditions Aren’t the Only Reason for California Blackouts – See Below for 6 Risks That Remain in Fall and Winter

Uninterruptible Power for Commercial Buildings

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

The average home is nearly 40 years old. It may or may not surprise you that the stock of commercial buildings is not much younger. Despite its strong economy and reputation for high standards, California is one of the areas of the country where most structures have been around 30 to 39 years.

This is a significant problem for small and mid-sized businesses that rely on real estate from commercial landlords. As leases become shorter and more expensive, companies often find themselves moving into new spaces on an accelerated timeline, before they can verify the electrical system meets their needs.

Demands on California electrical systems are increasing. In addition to wildfires, unprecedented storms and floods are striking throughout the year. Yet, it’s often the case that a business owner can’t be sure whether or not their electrical system will stand up to spikes, surges, and blackouts.

While uninterruptible power for commercial buildings can protect you from blackouts and condition your lines for better power quality, a new UPS is not always the first step. If you aren’t sure about the maintenance status of your power system or when it was last updated, there’s another #1 priority.

That’s a power analysis from trusted technicians.

Ways to Protect Critical Building Systems to Keep The Lights on During Power Outages

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

From residential to commercial construction, every building shares certain things in common.

The three biggest systems pulling electricity from your utility are:

·        Lighting

·        HVAC

·        Phone and data communications

Naturally, the specifics vary. Lights are often the biggest single user of power in a building, but your local grocery store may use hundreds of refrigeration compressors and rely on an advanced HVAC system that can never go far below full load. Losing power for minutes can cause millions in spoilage.
