Benefits of Installing UPS Units

As a business owner or operator, you are well aware of how losing power even for a millisecond can cost your business thousands of dollars. While almost every business operation requires electricity, sensitive equipment in hospitals and data centers is especially vulnerable to outages. So how do you avoid joining the countless American enterprises that lose billions annually on account of power failure?  

Having an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) unit prevents damage, accidents, and the loss of productivity resulting from blackouts and other power anomalies. Our experienced industrial and commercial electrical contractors explain the business advantages of investing in UPS units. 

How UPS Units can Keep Your Business Productivity on Track

  1. No more outages: One of the key benefits of investing in a UPS unit is continuous and consistent power supply for your business operations. In the event of a brownout or blackout, it provides temporary power to machines till you connect to the backup generator. This prevents any operational disruption and loss of productivity.
  2. Protects sensitive machinery and equipment: From manufacturing equipment to computers, a UPS unit offers advanced protection from damage caused by a variety of power issues. How? By sensing surges, spikes, dips and outages and converting to an alternate power source before any harm is done. This saves you the expense of repairing and replacing machinery damaged by frequent exposure to spikes, surges and sudden outages.  
  3. Minimal risk of data loss: With a UPS unit, you will have time to save your work and correctly power down computers and network equipment. You will have time to connect to backup generators. This helps prevent or minimize any corruption and loss of data being currently worked on as well as what is stored in these systems.  
  4. Reduced noise: When compared to backup generators, the fans of UPS units are significantly quieter. Since there is no annoying buzzing noise to disrupt your day, you can choose to install it inside or outside your facility.
  5. Use it anywhere: From data centers, hospitals and utility units to offshore rigs and remote localities without any independent or shared power supply, you can install a UPS unit almost anywhere that you might need one. 

While UPS units may seem like a substantial investment, they pay for themselves in uninterrupted business operations and equipment protection.

Ways to Limit Energy Waste

From the lights in your office to powering machines and running a production line—everything involves energy costs. That is why business owners and facility managers are constantly under pressure to improve energy efficiency. Minimizing consumption is one way to significantly reduce your operational expenses. Our experienced industrial and commercial contractors share valuable tips to reduce energy waste.

10 Tips to Help Your Business Consume Less Energy

  1. Install efficient lighting and controls: Design a system that combines natural sources with efficient electrical lighting and automated controls. For instance, installing motion sensors that turn lights on and off based on room occupancy can reduce energy usage considerably.
  2. Pay attention to compressed air systems: Producing compressed air can account for around 40% of your plant’s electricity bills. Reduce pressure when possible. Idling compressors can still consume energy, so turn them off when not in use.  Regular maintenance keeps them at peak efficiency.
  3. Correctly size motors and drives: The right size can reduce your operational costs by as much as 5%. Switch to high-efficiency solutions to optimize savings. Turn them off when not in operation or install auto sensors to control usage.
  4. Improve process controls: Properly calibrated equipment improves efficiency and productivity and can cut energy usage by 10%.
  5. Integrate energy and power management systems: It will help to lower energy usage as well as maintenance costs.
  6. Switch to high-efficiency HVAC models: Replace older HVAC equipment with newer models designed to reduce wasted energy in commercial buildings.
  7. Automate HVAC system controls: Using the latest HVAC automation technology can save you thousands of dollars every month in utility costs. Additionally, it helps you improve indoor comfort, schedule maintenance at the right times and prolong the overall system lifecycle.
  8. Create an energy use plan: Develop staff guidelines for cutting energy waste. This can include simple procedures such as shutting off lights and other energy-consuming devices when they are not in use, using power strips with a single switch to turn off computers and other equipment, and adjusting thermostats to seasonally appropriate temperatures.
  9. Improve the building’s seal: Making your commercial building more airtight to reduce air leaks and other sources of energy loss will result in a more energy-efficient space.
  10. Do an energy audit: This will identify areas of wastage and exactly where improvements need to be made.

The Difference between Residential, Commercial and Industrial Electricians

Electricians are trained to work in different environments, and it is important to hire the right one for your needs. For example, one of the main differences between a residential and commercial or industrial electrician is that the former typically work with single phase power supplies. The latter two work with more complex three phase electrical systems. Each environment has its unique challenges and requires specialized training and skills. Our experienced electrical contractors help you understand the difference and importance of hiring the correct professional for your needs.

Which Electrician to Hire for Your Job

They install ceiling fans and light fixtures, appliances and residential security systems. They can also diagnose and fix electrical problems including re-wiring older systems and installing additional outlets.
  • Commercial Electricians: If you are commissioning a new store or need to upgrade the electrical system in your office, a qualified commercial electrician will ensure safe and efficient installation. They are trained to work with complex electrical systems in diverse commercial environments, such as restaurants, offices, hospitals, schools, stores and other public use buildings. In addition to installing and upgrading wiring, they also work with higher voltage electrical systems like generators, large heating and air conditioning units, appliances, special health and safety equipment.
  • Industrial Electricians: Factories, manufacturing units, mining and power supply companies require the services of industrial electricians. While they install, repair and replace wiring, lighting fixtures and typical electrical systems like domestic and commercial electricians, they also have more specialized training in industrial requirements.
