Staying Wired.

No, this is not an expose’ about John Belushi.  This is about commercial wiring.  One of the first differences between residential and commercial electrical installation has to do with the type of wiring used for each individual building.  In residential homes, the main type of wiring used has a plastic sheathing around the narrow wires.

As it pertains to commercial buildings, the electrical wiring is run in open spaces to allow access, but the wiring is contained in tube-like conduits for protection.  Commercial buildings use three-phase power.  Three-phase power delivers a total of 448 volts which is two legs of 120 volts and a third called a “wild leg” that carries 208 volts.

How to wire a commercial building is a complicated job for a true professional.  The team at Daylight Electric and Appliance of Belen serves all of the residential and commercial wiring needs of the greater Albuquerque area.  When you decide to wire or rewire your business give Daylight Electric and Appliance a call at (505) 864-3980.

Temperature’s Falling.

October is upon us and that means winter in Central New Mexico is just around the corner.  As the temperatures fall, many commercial building and home owners are starting to think about turning on the heat.  In order to ensure that your boiler or heat exchanger is ready for the cooler weather, follow these tips to prepare your boiler for winter.

1.  Turn it on for at least 15 minutes before cold weather arrives.
2.  Bleed out the radiators.
3.  Look for leaks, cracks, and the accumulation of soot.
4.  The flame should be clear blue.
5.  Make sure the pipes are insulated.

Being ready before you spend a night in Belen or the Albuquerque area freezing your (you know what) off affords great peace of mind.  A full inspection of your boiler is just the ticket.  That ticket is punched by the professionals at Daylight Electric and Appliance.  Don’t wait one day too long…give yourself some “daylight” by calling (505) 864-3980.
