Does HunterCon repair and install commercial security systems?
Of course. There are many types of security systems available on the market, and it can be tempting to attempt a DIY install. However, it’s recommended to get a licensed and qualified electrician to do both installation and any necessary repairs. This is because the security system needs to be integrated into the wider electrical system for maximum efficiency and security. Ideally, it would be smart-business integrated so that many appliances are all connected to a central hub. This allows increased security and convenience.
And there are other benefits to using a professional electrician. The security system should be able to operate even during a power outage. It also needs to be scalable if you want to add components in the future as well as customised to your unique preferences. If you’re looking for a repair, install, or general maintenance of a commercial security system, we can help.
Can commercial switchboards be repaired?
This is sometimes the case, but not usually. Switchboards either work or they don’t, and failure is typically a sign of a bigger issue that requires replacement. If your switchboard is more than 15 years old, it’s probably not going to be able to handle the power of the modern era. It’s often best to go with an upgrade and install a new switchboard that supplies the power that your business needs.
On the other hand, there are certain instances where you can repair a switchboard. This is usually where the switchboard is actually able to meet the power requirements of your business but just needs a few tweaks. These instances include:
- If a fuse is constantly blowing and you’re regularly replacing the fuse wire.
- If you have a new switchboard with circuit breakers and it’s still tripping where it will need to be reset.
Can commercial AC units be repaired?
Many electricians will also offer air conditioning repair services. It is recommended to get your commercial AC unit checked over at least once or twice a year. This will increase its longevity and thermal efficiency. If the AC unit breaks down, then you’re probably going to need an immediate emergency repair. Electricians should provide this service so your customers don’t overheat!
Check to ensure that the services provider can repair all of the major brands (as there can be a lot of variances here). Your AC unit should also get an extensive cleaning and maintenance so it’s as good as new. If it’s not cleaned regularly, then it won’t be as efficient. Remember that if AC units are not regularly serviced then:
- The lifespan of the unit may be reduced.
- The airflow emitted by the device could decrease.
- It can become clogged, reducing its ability to emit heat or cold.
- Its warranty could be voided.
What’s the difference between an electrical upgrade and an electrical repair?
An electrical upgrade usually refers to a new installation that offers more power. For example, you might need a new switchboard that requires three phase power instead of single phase power. Commercial businesses in Sydney will likely need three-phase power to meet their power requirements, which often mandates an upgrade. Single-phase power won’t cut it with so many power hungry devices.
An electrical repair relates to restoring an existing appliance or system so it’s fully functional or close to it. This might mandate the replacement of specific parts and tweaks. Due to the dangers involved in the work, a licensed professional is required to carry out these repairs and upgrades.
