Power outages in Toronto cause incredible havoc. There is chaos on the roads when the traffic lights don’t work, there is chaos in the underground when the trains stop running, and there is chaos at your place of work. Moms struggle to cook meals for their families or heat the milk for a baby, the kids cannot watch their favourite series which is probably not the end of the world, dad may miss his baseball game or do his accounting and admin work, and while all of these things can be managed, it is pretty horrible. But power outages in the workplace cause even more chaos.
When a restaurant does not have power for half an hour in Toronto, it can lose a couple of thousand dollars. A boutique may have a whole lot of clothing stolen, in the dark. And a large enterprise that is dependent on power and productivity, can lose millions, yes, literally millions. Having power can mean your business survives, but not having power means it can also die a sudden death. Everyone in Toronto needs to have a good Toronto electrician who can put systems in place for those horrible power failures.
So what do you do if you are in Toronto and have constant power failures or if you are expecting to have power failures in the future. If you talk to a electrician in Toronto, he will talk to you about three main things.
- Ensure your current electrical system is working to the best of its ability, is up to date, safe, power efficient and cost efficient.
- Get a home generator for those winter power outages, just to be safe.
- Install UPS units in your place of work, to ensure your place of work stays alive.
Ajax and Aurora in Toronto had a pretty rough winter season last year. There were constant power outages and an Ajax electrician and an Aurora electrician were pretty much run off their feet, dealing with emergencies, buying and installing home generators for their clients, and putting in UPS units.
A UPS unit is an Uninterruptible Power Supply. It means you have no more outages and that no matter what is going on in the rest of the city, you and your place of business can keep on working. You can be productive, in all weather conditions and at all times. If you do work in Ajax or Aurora, or in fact anywhere in Toronto that struggles with power outages, you should consider a UPS unit. This is the sort of thing that your commercial electrical contractor Toronto can advise you on, and can do the installation for you, as well as the servicing.
Here are the advantages, highlighted very simply, of having a UPS unit. This information comes directly from our certified electrician Toronto who has installed many a UPS unit.
When the power goes out, yours stays on.
The UPS unit kicks on between the outage and the time your generator kicks in.
You will not lose any work.
Your equipment will not be affected by power surges.
A UPS unit is quiet.
You can use a UPS unit anywhere.
As our Certified electrician Toronto explained to us, a UPS unit saves you for that in-between time. The power goes out and everything goes dark. Work that has been done is lost. If there is a generator, the power comes back on. With a UPS unit, it never goes dark. The power is lost and the UPS kicks in, in a split second. It gives you the time you need, before your back up generator is fired up, to save everything, to keep working, to keep being productive. It also means if there are power surges, you would not even know about them. Your equipment is safeguarded.
So who uses UPS units? In Toronto, all big businesses do, but small businesses do too, and they are becoming even more frequent in the suburbs of Toronto, including Ajax and Aurora. Your licensed electrician Toronto will tell you exactly how to go about getting a UPS, and in fact, will do it for you. Yes, it is a bit of a financial layout, but in return you are getting huge security.
We cannot stress hard enough the importance of using licensed electricians. Whether you want a new electrical circuit, an overhaul of your current circuit, electrical services help during an electrical emergency, a generator or a UPS unit installed, you must do it via the correct people. When the power goes out, your systems need to kick in. Use Dynamic Electric in Toronto as your commercial as well as residential electrician Toronto, and never worry again.
