Sitting down for dinner, during a cold morning, or in the middle of an extremely warm afternoon – there’s no good time for you to suddenly lose power. In the Pacific Northwest, we’ve all experienced the occasional loss of power during a blustery winter storm. There’s nothing as unsettling as waking up to an alarm clock that’s blinking 12:00.
The weather isn’t always the culprit, though. Overloading an older electrical system with too many power-sucking appliances at once could blow a breaker – or something more dangerous. Outdated wiring is more than inconvenient, it could be a fire hazard. Not to mention the issues you’ll encounter with a sudden electrical problem.
Waking up late because of a failed alarm, food going bad in the refrigerator, the lack of heat on a freezing morning, or blazing hot days with no fans. Being without power for any amount of time at home can be more than an inconvenience. But electrical emergencies at your manufacturing plant, food processing facility, or other industrial or commercial building, will cost you productivity.
Never mind the lost revenue, it can also be a safety issue when heavy machinery or equipment suddenly power down. Not to mention computer hardware that can be affected when even a momentary loss of power. From losing an important report to shutting down an entire business network or database.
