Commercial and industrial properties in Maryland and Northern VA rely on efficient and functional electrical systems for a variety of everyday needs, from simple lighting and computer access to manufacturing and safety equipment operation. An industrial electrician offers specialized electrical services that include electrical system and fixture wiring, repair, analysis, and replacement in a commercial or industrial setting. Because industrial buildings and their needs can differ greatly from residential homes, trusting your business’ electrical needs to an industrial electrician serving Arlington, VA, is the very best way to save time and money.

Improved Efficiency

The amount of electricity a building uses is highly correlated with the size of the building, as well as its functional purpose. Commercial and industrial buildings often require a significant amount of energy during everyday operations—much more so than the average home. A poorly-designed or neglected electrical system can result in significantly higher power bills due to inefficiency and wear, leading to high operating costs for your business. Bringing in an industrial electrician to install, evaluate, repair, or upgrade your business’ electrical system can thus save you money by making improvements that increase the efficiency and function of every electrical system on your property, lowering their overall energy requirements and reducing daily, monthly, and annual operating costs.

Updated Equipment

In addition to ensuring your electrical system itself is clean, safe, and designed for efficiency, an industrial electrician can also help you take steps to update your electrical equipment for added savings. Installing equipment optimized for high efficiency, such as high-efficiency transformers, LED lighting, and motion-activated lighting or HVAC control, will have a dramatic impact on the amount of energy your property consumes each day. Furthermore, updating your electrical equipment will create a safer, more comfortable workplace for your employees, which improves morale and can boost productivity, resulting in greater long-term profits for your business as well. Working with an industrial electrician ensures that any high-efficiency equipment you install is tailored to your business’ needs, reducing wasted energy and improving the returns you gain on your investment.

Lower Risk of Damage or Loss

Your industrial electrical will also tailor your system to provide protection for your equipment. Installing solutions such as surge protection equipment and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS systems) reduces the chances that a storm, power surge, or other electrical problem will damage your equipment or cause a loss of data and productivity. Because all of these factors ultimately affect either your operational costs or your business profits, taking steps to protect your equipment and your data means enjoying peace of mind and a reduced risk of loss that would require you to spend additional money for electrical repairs and replacement, as well as lost employee work and effort.
