Factories are average-priced buildings that increase production, but lower happiness. Their production rate doubles if places near a house, while its happiness deduction will still stay the same. They will cancel out entertainment buildings if placed near one. Balancing out production and happiness will make you less vulnerable to a religious take over from another city. When you place one down, you can hear your citizens jeering at your choice.
If there are no religious cities in the current game you are playing, you should feel free to place as many factories as you wish, as there will be no threat to you should your city be completely unhappy. Though this may cause your city to revolt, cutting its production in half.
