Keep Electrical Cabinet Cool

Replace Parts as Needed

Many cabinet fan cooling kits are designed to give consumers with a product that is easy to install and will last awhile. That does not mean that all the parts of the product will last for the entire life of your electrical enclosure.

Owners should do routine checks to guarantee that all parts are in working order, and replace parts as needed. Even fan cords that are beginning to fray can have a negative impact on the cooling system of your unit, resulting in your electrical enclosure not being as cool as it should.

Filter Maintenance

Providing routine filter maintenance is vital to keep cooling systems running properly. When a filter is not clean, it is more difficult for the system to push cool air into the electrical enclosure, resulting in an electrical cabinet that will be hotter than average, causing damage to the electrical components found inside. Filters that are reusable should be cleaned on a regular basis, and filters that are not should be replaced as they become dirty.

What Not to do

Individuals that own electrical cabinets may find themselves in a bind if their previous cooling system has failed, and they are waiting on the delivery of their new cabinet cooling fan kit. In these situations, people are advised to avoid several common mistakes that can result in more damage.

Owners should not point their own portable fan into the enclosure. This can result in more dirt and dust going into the space, causing damage and creating a fire hazard. This also may cause the person operating the fan to get shocked, resulting in injury, is a violation of OSHA standards, and it will not have a large enough impact to effectively cool down the enclosure.

Individuals should also avoid pointing their personal portable air conditioner into the enclosure. This poses the same risks that using a fan does, but on a larger scale. For example, air conditioners are known to produce more cold air, but this can also result in more dust being pushed into electrical enclosures.
