4 Common Commercial Electrical Problems to Watch Out For

Today, most companies will encounter huge losses, or even shut down, if they don’t receive a constant power supply. That’s why, as a business owner, it’s absolutely crucial to invest in electrical services and carry out routine checks to ensure a well-maintained power system.

Here are 4 common electrical malfunctions to look out for:

  1. Old Wiring. It’s quite common for properties to have a combination of older and newer wiring. However, old wiring has a greater chance of sustaining damage from overloaded circuits or electrical surges, so it’s important to have an electrician evaluate your system and make any necessary upgrades.

  2. Tripping Circuit Breaker. If your circuit breaker is tripping too often, then it’s a sign that it needs to be replaced. In addition, limit the number of high duty devices that are working on a single circuit as this will prevent your circuit breakers from tripping.

  3. Flickering lights. Flickering lights in your commercial space can result from poor connections. Investing in professional electrical services to help identify and solve the issue can prevent any harm. Also: if your fixtures are discoloured, you should replace them and fix any loose connections to prevent electrical breakdown.

  4. Sparks: If you are experiencing sparks in your workplace, it could be from an electrical outlet when you plug in an appliance. If these don’t subside and you notice your outlets are heating up, turn off your main power IMMEDIATELY and call an electrician.


Unexpected Power Loss in the Workplace

Without a regular power supply, achieving your daily goals can be difficult, if not impossible. Whether it’s your entire workspace or just a few sections of the office that have lost power, flicking the fuse switch often resolves the problem.

However, if this doesn’t work, you should invest in professional electrical services. Remember: safety in commercial and industrial establishments is critical, so NEVER leave anything to chance.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
