Troubleshooting

Electrical problems can often be hard to diagnose. Sometimes the only sign that there is a problem is a power outage or a malfunctioning machine. Those issues on their own may not provide enough information for an electrical novice to identify the issue. The problem could lie in the wiring, the control panel, the transformer or any number of other devices in the system.

At EMF Power, our technicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help Chicagoland and North Shore businesses troubleshoot their electrical issues. Contact us today and we’ll happily help you solve your problem.

Upgrading

Growth is a great thing for any business. However, growth can also bring its own set of challenges. A business could outgrow its old facility and require a larger, more advanced building to accommodate increased staff and production. An industrial or manufacturing business may need larger machinery that requires a consistent supply of high-voltage power.

Any type of facility upgrade will likely require an electrical upgrade as well. Using new, high-power equipment on an electrical system and fuses designed for low-power equipment could spell disaster. A business could experience frequent power outages or malfunctioning equipment.

At EMF Power, we help Chicagoland and North Shore businesses grow without experiencing an interruption to their power supply. Our technicians can evaluate a businesses needs and recommend a suitable setup. Contact us today to learn how we can help you grow.

Wiring

Electrical wiring is the nervous system that keeps an automated industrial facility running smoothly. An important consideration in a facility’s wiring is the type of wiring needed for specific pieces of equipment. Larger machinery probably require high-voltage wiring, while smaller devices like security cameras, computers, and telephones require low voltage systems.

Using the wrong electrical wiring can have serious consequences. A large machine that is hooked up to low voltage wiring may not get enough power to run at full speed, if at all. A small device could be permanently damaged by high voltage wiring. A qualified electrical contractor could determine which wiring is appropriate and install it to meet the facility’s needs.

At EMF Power, we assist Chicagoland and North Shore businesses with all of their electrical needs. Our highly-trained, experienced technicians are available 24/7 to respond to emergencies, answer questions, and provide information. Contact us today for more information.

Emergency Temporary Power Services

In today’s digital world, a power outage can be devastating for a business. An outage can knock a website offline, put a halt to electronic communications, and even prevent a business from accepting payments. The old axiom that time is money is never more true than during a power outage.

An emergency or temporary back-up power service can help a business stay in business during a power outage. Back-up generators are becoming more commonly used by many businesses. Various battery-based solutions can also be effective back-up power sources.

At EMF Power Company, we proudly help Chicagoland and North Shore businesses stay in operation in even the most extreme power situations. Our experienced, highly-trained technicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help you implement a back-up power plan or to assist you with your power emergency. Don’t hesitate to contact us for immediate assistance.

Backup Generators

There was a time when only large businesses and critical facilities like hospitals and police departments used back-up generators. Now, many businesses and even residences are adding them to their home electrical system.

We live in an increasingly connected world. For many individuals and businesses, going without power is simply not a viable option. Extended periods without electricity could mean little or no internet access, which could mean a significant loss in business or productivity.

In Chicago, all it takes is one storm to knock out power for an extended period. Back-up generators have become popular options for those who are worried about loss of power and connectivity.

At EMF Power Co., we are available to advise Chicagoland residents on whether a back-up generator makes sense for their home or business. We can recommend units that are appropriate and then install the generator to the highest standards.

Security Lighting

Well-placed security lighting is critical for nearly any business. Security lights can act as a strong deterrent to criminals and vandals. Businesses can also opt for security lights that are motion sensitive. The lights are powered by movement and provide an immediate indication to the intruder that his or her presence has been detected. That’s often enough warning to scare the intruder into leaving.

Security lights don’t just deter criminal activity. They can also prevent hazards that may create liability for a company. Businesses often use motion-sensitive lights in areas of the building that are seldom used. When an employee enters the area, the lights come on, thus eliminating a dangerous workplace hazard.

Contact us at EMF Power to discuss your security lighting needs. We proudly install high-quality security light systems for businesses throughout Chicagoland and the North Shore.

Signs

Strong marketing is critical to any business’s success. While the Internet has provided businesses with a wide variety of marketing options, a business’s most powerful marketing tool may still be it’s simplest: its sign.

Today’s digital signs can send a message, advertise special offers, and draw in customers. In many instances, a sign is a business’s most direct communication with its customers and prospects.

A sign can’t accomplish any of those things, if it isn’t working properly. Like any other electrical device, a digital sign can malfunction. Whether it’s from a short wire or a blown fuse, a non-working sign can translate into lost business.

At EMF Power, our experienced, highly-trained electricians are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’re available to look at inspect the sign, diagnose the issue, and fix the problem to get the sign up and running before any business is lost.

Surge & Lightning Protection

Electrical surges can be devastating for automated industrial facilities. The most destructive surges come from lightning strikes, but those are relatively rare. Far more common are brief spikes caused by the use of machines that demand a significant amount of power. Those surges can cause equipment failure, power outages and loss of critical data.

An experienced electrical contractor can take steps to protect equipment from dangerous power surges. Industrial surge protectors could mitigate a surge’s blow. A contractor could determine what size and type of protector is best suited for the facility.

At EMF Power, we proudly keep the power running so Chicagoland and North Shore businesses can get the job done. Our skilled technicians can analyze your surge risk and install equipment to protect your facility. Contact us 24 hours a day, seven days a week for more information on how we can help you.

Voltage Conversions

As businesses grow and expand, they sometimes add equipment and machinery that doesn’t fit their current electrical setup. They may need to work the equipment into their three-phase system or they may find they need more power on a consistent basis.

They also may find that they need to convert the voltage from their power supply for the equipment to run properly. Voltage conversions are not simple jobs and should be handled by a professional electrical contractor. When done incorrectly, the voltage conversion can shut down an electrical system or even cause a transformer to blow itself up.

At EMF Power, we assist Chicagoland and North Shore industrial businesses with all of their electrical needs. Our highly-trained, knowledgeable electricians are available 24/7 to respond to your electrical emergency. Contact us today to learn how we can help with a voltage conversion or any other electrical need you may have.

Thermal Imaging

Many facilities use three phase power to provide constant power to their machinery and automated systems. As businesses grow and facilities expand, new machinery is often added to the mix. In many cases, that equipment isn’t balanced at the main service point. This can lead to one phase drawing more power than the other two phases, which can then lead to electrical and power supply issues.

An electrical contractor could use thermal imaging to determine whether there is a problem with how current is being distributed through the three phases. Once the problem is identified, the electrician could take the necessary steps to quickly resolve the issue.

At EMF Power, we use thermal imaging and load tests to help Chicagoland and North Shore businesses keep their power supply constant. We’re available 24/7 to address your power issues. Contact us today to learn how thermal imaging could help you.

Green Technology

One doesn’t usually think of green technology when thinking about industrial facilities. However, driven by a desire for reduced electrical costs and concerns about the environment, more and more industrial businesses are turning to green technological upgrades for their electrical systems.

Solar panels are one tool many businesses use to generate inexpensive supplemental power. Solar panels used to be costly and bulky, but can now be discreetly installed into any building. LED lighting can also cut down on energy usage and electrical costs. An electrical contractor could retrofit lights to become more energy efficient. Even wind energy can now be harvested by an industrial facility using a variety of efficient wind energy devices.

At EMF Power, we help Chicagoland and North Shore businesses protect the environment and reduce electricity costs by recommending and installing green technology. Contact us today to learn how green technology could benefit your business.

Parking Lot Lights

Parking lot lights serve several critical functions. First, and most importantly, they help to keep a business’s parking lot safe from crime. A dark parking lot is a welcome sight to criminals. Darkness encourages car break-ins, theft, and vandalism. A well-lit parking lot acts as a natural deterrent.

While parking lot lights may scare away criminals, they work to attract customers. Parking lot lights convey an image of safety and professionalism. They can also make customers aware that a business is open during nighttime hours.

At EMF Power, we understand the importance of keeping your parking lot well-lit at all times. Our experienced, friendly staff is available 24/7 to service parking lot light issues. We can also help with lighting installations and upgrades by recommending from a wide variety effective and efficient systems. Contact us today to learn more.
