If your commercial business is experiencing electrical issues, things quickly can go from irritating to devastating, especially for your bottom line. No one wants to lose a vital service that their business relies on. It can have crippling effects on your operations and the success of your business.

You can avoid potential headaches like this by regularly scheduling our commercial electrical repair electrician to inspect, service, repair, and maintain your electrical systems.

There are some common commercial electrical issues that tend to arise in industrial and commercial buildings. Regular electrical servicing will ensure the optimal safety and functioning of your business.

Electrical Repairs & Servicing

Any electrical issue, regardless of how small, should be dealt with swiftly before it can become a much bigger issue or even a potential fire hazard.

Along with routine electrical inspections, your commercial electrician may conduct any of the following:

  • Electrical Troubleshooting & Diagnosis
  • Electrical Repairs
  • Replacing Aging or Faulty Electrical Components
  • Routine Electrical Maintenance

Look Out for Electrical Warning Signs

By having a commercial electrician perform routine commercial electrical repairs and servicing, you can stay one step ahead of most problems before they get out of hand.

However, there are some tell-tale warning signs that will tell you when you are experiencing potential electrical issues including:

  • Commercial lights that flicker, dim, or seem to burn out quickly
  • Tripping breakers
  • Electronics that fail suddenly or more often
  • Isolated electrical shortages
  • Frequent power surges
  • Issues with power outlets (sparking, excessive heat, black residue on the outlets, etc.)

If you spot any of these commercial electrical issues in your building, call our commercial electricians sooner rather than later. You can reach us by calling 604-308-6195 or by contacting us online.

Replacing Faulty Electrical Components

Faulty electrical components can cause a range of problems, including equipment failure, power outages, and electrical fires. In many cases, faulty electrical components need to be replaced to restore the electrical system to full working order.

Commercial electricians are trained to identify and replace faulty electrical components quickly and efficiently, minimizing the impact on your business operations.

Replacing faulty electrical components can involve a range of tasks, depending on the nature of the fault.

For example, if a circuit breaker is faulty, an electrician may need to replace it with a new one. Similarly, if a transformer is not functioning correctly, an electrician may need to replace the entire component. In some cases, electrical components may need to be custom-made or specially ordered, which can add to the repair time.

Common Commercial Electrical Problems

Commercial electrical systems are exposed to heavier strain and usage and usually require regularly scheduled servicing to keep them operating efficiently.

Warehouses, factories, and manufacturing facilities that operate year-round with heavy equipment and tools that are constantly in use cannot afford any downtime.

Commercial electrical repairs and servicing may involve any of the following:

Having a reliable commercial electrician on hand is crucial for workplace safety and in the long run, can save you a lot of aggravation, expensive downtime, and loss of productivity.

Our team of licensed electricians at Premium Electric is well-versed in all types of commercial electrical repairs. Here are some of the most common electrical problems we can address.

Circuit Breaker Problems

Circuit breakers are designed to last years but can become damaged or ineffective due to arcing, power surges, or age. When a circuit breaker is overburdened, it can be very dangerous and can pose a fire hazard.

If your business has grown rapidly, your electrical panel could potentially be inadequate for the new demands your business success has placed on it. You may want to consider a circuit breaker panel upgrade to keep up with your growing electrical demands.

We’ve even come across situations where the building’s previous owner failed to maintain the building’s electrical needs. This necessitates anything from electrical panel upgrades to wiring upgrades or lighting upgrades.

Commercial Wiring Problems

It’s not uncommon for older commercial buildings and industrial buildings to have older wiring.

If the old wiring is outdated, faulty, or installed incorrectly and isn’t up to today’s electrical code requirements, you may need commercial electrical wiring upgrades.

Older commercial electrical wiring can be dangerous and a fire hazard due to any number of issues including:

  • Improper installation
  • Crowded wiring – insufficient spacing
  • Improper grounding
  • Aging degradation
  • Damage from pests or other causes

Do have your commercial wiring inspected by a qualified commercial electrician and have the wiring upgraded as necessary to comply with today’s electrical coding standards.

Electrical Faults

Electrical faults can occur for a variety of reasons, including faulty wiring, worn-out components, or outdated systems. When an electrical fault occurs, it can cause a range of problems, including power outages, equipment failure, and even electrical fires.

Our commercial electricians are trained to diagnose and repair electrical faults quickly and efficiently, minimizing the risk of damage to equipment and property.

Diagnosing electrical faults typically involves a process of elimination, starting with the most obvious causes and working through to more complex issues. This process can involve testing electrical circuits, checking wiring and connections, and inspecting electrical components.

Once the electrical fault has been identified, we can carry out the necessary repairs, which can include rewiring circuits, replacing damaged components, or installing new electrical equipment.

Older & Ungrounded Outlets

Commercial electrical outlets get a lot of use. If you run out of available outlets, resist the urge to use extension cords, especially for commercial electrical requirements. Extension cords should only be for temporary use as they are prone to overheating and can pose a fire hazard.

Ungrounded electrical outlets are another risk in older commercial buildings. Consult with your electrician about upgrading to newer grounded outlets as needed and install GFCI outlets wherever they are needed. See our post on Electrical Outlet Types.

Grounding Issues

Electrical power surges in commercial and industrial buildings are quite common. Your commercial electrician will make sure that your facilities are well protected, and everything is properly grounded to eliminate ground loops.

Ground loops can occur when two devices are connected to each other, but both are also individually grounded. This creates a ground loop that may adversely affect the flow of the electrical current.

Loose or Unprotected Electrical Connections

Loose electrical connections are difficult to spot, which can be dangerous if left unattended. Luckily, they’re very easy to fix when they are caught early!

Hire our commercial electrician to conduct a full electrical inspection if you feel suspicious about loose or unprotected electrical connections or have recently moved your operations into a new building. It can save you money and headaches in the long run!

Our licensed commercial electricians are trained to handle the unique challenges that older commercial and industrial buildings may present. Let u put in the work, so you can spare yourself the worry.

Conducting Routine Maintenance Services

Routine electrical maintenance is essential for keeping electrical systems in good working order. Regular maintenance can help identify potential problems before they become serious, improving the electrical system’s reliability and safety.

Our electricians can provide a range of routine maintenance services, including inspections, testing, and cleaning.

Inspections involve checking the electrical system for any signs of wear and tear, damage, or other issues. This can involve checking wiring, connections, and electrical components and testing the system’s performance.

Testing can include measuring voltage, current, and resistance and checking for any electrical interference or noise.

Compliance with Regulations

Electrical systems in commercial and industrial buildings are subject to various regulations and codes. Businesses that fail to comply with these regulations can face legal and financial penalties, as well as damage to their reputation.

By investing in commercial electrical repair and servicing, you can ensure that the electrical systems in your business are compliant with all relevant regulations and codes. This can help to protect you and your business from liability and demonstrate a commitment to safety and quality.
