Whole House Fan Installation

whole house fan upland caWhole House Fan Installation

Serving Upland, Ontario, Claremont, Glendora, San Dimas, Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga, Covina, and Montclair, California.

With temperatures reaching the 100’s it a great idea to have a whole house fan.  It helps you get the hot air out fast.

Ethical Electrical provides whole house fan installation. With the summer heat on the way, it may be the time to think about installing that long desired whole house fan.

The whole house fan is used to exhaust the building heat in the building’s attic. It is designed to circulate air in the home or building. Generally it can pull the air out of the building and force it into the attic space. Then forcing it out through the gables, or vents in the roof. It is important to leave windows open in the home or building to draw cooler air through open windows. Generally homeowners use this system later in the day when the temperatures are starting to cool down.

This system is rather tricky and does require a electrician to install the the whole house fan. In addition your attic needs to be checked out for circuit wiring, and if needed new attic vents. More vent area is better for optimal whole house fan performance.

There are additional operating precautions when using these large exhaust fans. Open windows throughout the house to prevent a powerful and concentrated suction in one location. When there is not enough ventilation, the fans can cause a back draft in your furnace, water heater or gas-fired dryer, pulling combustion products such as carbon monoxide into your living space. Therefore use a professional electrician who can make sure you have the proper whole house fan installation

Office Recessed Lighting

Office Recessed LightingOffice Recessed Lighting Ideas

We are happy to give you some office lighting ideas to think about. As a avid reader of the Electrical Contractor Magazine, we found this very informative article we want to share with you. Who ever thought that lighting could be so educational. We thank Craig DiLouie for writing this very educational article. We are giving you just a taste and hope you enjoy it.

The Right Light: Color Tuning

By Craid DiLouie

While light makes sight, lighting shapes perception, particularly in regard to color in the things we see. This is because visible white light is made of colors. For us to see an object as a certain color, that color must be present in both the light and the object.

Electric lamps typically do not emit light in a balance color spectrum; the relative intensities of different colors, therefore, affect the appearance of a space. A white light source rich in red and orange wavelengths will bring out warmest colors and flesh tones. A white light source rich in blue and green wavelengths will bring out cooler colors. A light source with balanced red, green and blue wavelengths can make colors appear more vibrant.

The advent of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting has led to possibilities with color control that either did not exist previously or were difficult or costly to implement. Many LED luminaries are available with out-of-the-box dimming capability with a negligible cost adder. For the Lighting to have color tuning capability, either separately dimmable arrays of warm and cool LEDs are mixed, or separately dimmable colors are mixed with white. This makes it possible for color temperatures to either automatically change at various times of the day or in response to certain events, or users can manually adjust the color temperature based on evolving space needs or occupant preference. There also is an effort being made to connect the design of electric lighting systems with regulation of circadian rhythms. Advocates of this link believe changing color temperature in certain ways throughout the day can affect health and productivity.

There are many practical uses of this type of control in commercial buildings. Here are several possibilities that might be explored:

Open offices in which the prevailing color temperature matches the actual or idealized daylight cycle, providing a sense of connection with the outdoors and visual cues about time of day.  Day lighted offices in which the color appearance of the electric lighting is automatically tuned to blend with the daylight
Private offices where the occupant is given a remote control device to adjust both intensity and color temperature based on need or preference
Meeting spaces set to cool lighting during business and warm lighting during a special social event.
Retail store where the color appearance of the light is adjusted according to time of day, exterior environment, fashion season and changing pro-duct displays
Restaurant dining rooms set to cool lighting during business luncheons and warm lighting during evening dining hours. Automatically ensure constant color output from LED luminaries being dimmed or from those that color shift as they age.

In short, as with the ability to control white light’s intensity through dimming, the ability to control its shade makes lighting systems much more responsive to organizational and user needs, thereby increasing value.

Grocery Store Electrical

Grocery Store ElectricalGrocery Store Electrical Systems

The owners and managers of such facilities need repairs and upgrades frequently. This is because a Grocery Store is the most electricity intensive type of commercial facility. By that we mean, practically everything in the store relies on electricity. The refrigeration of fresh food, produce, meats, frozen foods, lighting, room atmosphere cooling or heating can be so expensive. Thereby leaving a very small profit margin.

There are hundreds if not thousands of grocery stores who need updated equipment and systems to gain an edge on increasing cost of produce and products. It takes an experienced Electrical Contractor who has created complex electrical systems to help those companies do their upgrades.

Dominic Portesi is that man, he has years of electrical contracting experience he has installed systems for grocery stores, movie theaters restaurants, refineries , medical buildings, hotels and motels.

Some of these commercial electrical systems included load calculation, wire size calculations, duct fill calculations, conduit fill calculations, all wire requirements, purchasing of all materials required, figure device and motor termination, ordering of all materials and testing.

Then after getting it operational, how about setting up that back-up system installed to work with the current operation system. Without a backup generator system for a commercial system. You will most certainly lose lots of money when you have that electrical storm hit the area.

Recently in our home area, we had an electrical storm. The power was out for many many hours. But one store remained open. It was a comfort for those who need to buy emergency batteries, candles and ice for their home refrigerators That day I will always remember. Even though it was only overnight. I will not forget how the other stores had to close down. The store with the backup generator gained a profit and helped the neighborhood which was grateful.

If you need a commercial electrical contractor, contact Dominic Portesi.
