Expanding Your Business

Expanding Your Business

There are lots of things to think about when you expand your business.

When looking to lease new space and purchase an existing building, you can’t afford surprises. Knowing your power needs and performing a “health check” of the electrical distribution system is essential when evaluating the lease or purchase an existing space.   Costly changes can be avoided or taken into account when negotiating lease terms and purchases when you ask Aschinger Electric to join your team.
  • Aschinger’s Electrical Evaluation can include:
  • Assessment of current power usage and evaluation of future needs
  • Assessment of existing equipment and machinery power need
  • Evaluation of proposed space, with reviews of:
    • Power to suit current and future needs of your business
    • Code Compliance
    • Energized testing of existing electrical distribution equipment
    • NFPA-70E Compliance
  • Budgets for necessary repairs and upgrades
In commercial spaces, the power is defined by the amount of voltage (volts), and the amount of current (amps). To put it in plumbing system terms, the voltage is equivalent to the water pressure and the current is the water flow rate.   Computers and digital equipment use Direct Current or DC, while HVAC systems, lights and motors use Alternating Current or AC.
A typical residence will have a 120 volt service with 200 amps of current. Small commercial and retail spaces may have a 200 to 400 amp service and run on 220 volts for lighting and HVAC. Manufacturing and industrial spaces will need 480 volt, 400 to 800 amp services in order to power motor and machinery. Spaces used to house computer and digital equipment will need to convert power from AC to DC.
