How Electrical Upgrades Will Improve Your Home Office Productivity
If you have been a part of the work-from-home workforce for many years or even just starting out, you might be shocked at how a few electrical upgrades can increase your productivity. You feel like things are running pretty smoothly now. But there is always room to improve on things like lighting, connectivity, and the safety of your costly computer and other office equipment.
Lighting The Way For Better Productivity
If your workspace was not a dedicated office before, it probably lacks good light. You could be making a single fixture meet all your needs for some backlighting when you are on your computer and bright overhead light for writing, designing, or reading. Then there is that soft light when you are just trying to get wrapped up for the day or first thing in the morning. Adding more outlets for various light sources or built-in recessed lights can improve the function of your workspace, reduce eye strain, and add a more professional appearance for your next video conference.
How many times have you had to run to the electric panel to reset the breaker for your workspace outlets? If you never have, consider yourself lucky. Also, consider taking steps to prevent future issues with a dedicated electrical circuit for your computer and other costly and very essential electronic devices. Any appliance with a large motor can create a power surge within your home that will zap electronic circuit boards. So the refrigerator, the AC system, and even the garage door opener can create some blips of bad power in your home. A dedicated circuit and surge protection can insulate your work equipment from these issues and protect your livelihood. Call 612-236-9052 for a free price quote from Lumberjack Electric to install a dedicated circuit and added surge protection to ensure that your work tools are safe.
Wi-Fi – Why Not?
Wireless internet is the easiest way to connect everything in your house to the web. But it is also the easiest way for others to access your devices. In addition, that connection is never going to provide the reliability and speed of a hard-wired connection. However, you don’t want to deal with that 50-foot long cable running down the hall and into your workspace. The simple solution is a call to Lumberjack Electric at 612-236-9052 to install access cable assess jacks in your workspace for a professional solution to security, reliability, and latency.
It Begins With Your Electrical Panel
When thinking about the electrical service in your home, the first place you should consider is the electrical panel. It is the point where all the electricity enters your home. Unfortunately, many homeowners overlook this integral piece of equipment when upgrading electrical service. Sadly, that can result in costly issues as the reliability and safety delivered by the panel and breakers begin to decline after 10 to 15 years.
