There are obvious signs that your production or warehouse facility needs the services of an electrician, but having the lights go out or the power fail altogether is not the only time you should call such a professional. Note a few electrical and other problems you may encounter at a manufacturing facility or warehouse and why these may be signs that you need electrical repairs.
Consistent power slowdowns shouldn't be expected or simply overlooked, assuming that they're normal. Brownouts usually mean that your facility is pulling more power than your wiring or circuits can handle. While your facility may still operate during a brownout, this electrical slowdown can damage your equipment as motors, fans and other pieces struggle to work. In turn, they suffer more wear and tear and may need replacing sooner rather than later. An electrician can note if certain equipment should be on its own circuit or if you need new or additional wiring in order to conduct the power needed to run your facility properly.
Your rapid roll door isn't that rapid
A door that fails to open as it should or fast enough may be bent or have rust along the chains or tracks; however, if that's not the case, this is typically an electrical problem that requires an electrician to diagnose and repair. If you haven't had the electrical wiring updated since you've had a new door installed, chances are it may be drawing too much power every time it operates. This can cause a door to malfunction, such as not opening as quickly as it should, or opening only partway and then stopping. If all other parts of the door are in good repair, call an electrician to test its wiring and power.
After a flood
If your facility has been flooded, you may think that the repair work only involves replacing damaged equipment and cleaning up the receding waters. However, if the floodwaters reached your electrical systems, this may have caused corrosion to the wiring, connectors and other parts. In turn, your facility may be at a higher risk for that wiring shorting out and then causing an electrical fire. If wires have been damaged, they may not be able to conduct enough electricity to run your facility and you may experience brownouts, as mentioned above. An electrician can test the amps and volts of the wiring to note if it's in good condition or if any of it needs to be replaced because of this water damage.

Hi, my name is Jules and welcome to my blog. From the first time I stuck a wire in a potato and got a light, I have been enthralled by electricity. As I got older, I even began wiring my own homes. Although I love to play with electricity, I certainly don't like to waste it. Because of that, I have creating a number of lighting designs to save energy. It can't just be about the wires. It has to also be about windows, position of the overhead and side lights, integration of solar panels and other elements. Please explore this blog and enjoy!
