Common Commercial Electrical Problems

Common Commercial Electrical Problems

Commercial properties are used for a wide range of activities. Whether your commercial property functions as a business, restaurant, multiple living spaces, or office space, your electrical demands are higher than that of a residential property. Commercial properties have much more complex wiring and electrical systems, which can lead to unique issues. It is important to have your system inspected regularly to ensure that it is working safely and efficiently. 

Quick Bulb Burnout

No matter how your commercial space is used, it is going to require a lot of electrical output. Regardless of the type of bulbs you use, they are subject to possible overuse. If you find yourself needing to replace lightbulbs often, this could be a sign of your system having a hard time keeping up with your needs.

Flickering or Dimming Lights

Flickering or dimming lights can be an inconvenience, especially when lighting is necessary to complete work and other productive activities. These situations are often caused by poor connections in your system. If you are experiencing these issues in your building, it is important to have them examined as soon as possible to prevent any possible permanent damage. 

Tripping Breakers

Your breakers can be tripped by a short circuit in the system, an overload, or an issue with faulty grounding. This is not only a pain but could also present a fire hazard risk to your building. If breakers are being tripped consistently, the current electrical system may not be able to keep up with the building’s demands.
