If your company is experiencing regular power surges, employees can become frustrated due to equipment shutdowns. Equipment shutdowns lead to time wastage may cause data losses or even lead to fires. What can be causing frequent power surges at your company and how best can you resolve the issue?
Most of the time, you will need to call a commercial electrician to install dedicated circuits to stop power surges. The circuits will have to be installed to provide power in areas that require a heavy load or those are sensitive.
What is a Dedicated Circuit?
Dedicated circuits are electrical circuits that serve only one specific purpose. Each circuit has its own circuit breaker that is located as near the power source as possible. To access a dedicated circuit, one would have to go through a specific receptacle. Some appliances are usually wired directly into the circuit, for example an electric water heater. In most cases, dedicated circuits serve other equipment that requires a heavy load or that are sensitive. In large companies, commercial electrical installation of dedicated circuits is required to prevent equipment shutdowns.
Importance of Installing Dedicated Circuits
Most commercial buildings require dedicated circuits. If the circuits are not installed, power surges can make equipment like computers, electronics and others short circuit. The surges can occur due to equipment or appliance overload.
Secure Your Business
It is crucial to hire a commercial electrician to install dedicated circuits for specialized equipment such as security systems. Motion detectors, cameras and other monitoring devices are some of the security equipment you need to protect. Failure to install dedicated circuits in your business premises can lead to fatal consequences. For example, a simple plugging in of a coffee maker in an overloaded circuit can lead to fires. Sometimes, power surges can cause data loss in computers.
