It is common for businesses to eventually need to have electrical work done. While this work can take many forms, there are a few types of commercial electrical work that can be common for businesses to need to address.
Interior Lighting Upgrades
The interior lighting is an important part of your building as it will allow individuals to be able to more clearly see when they are navigating through the building or to easily see the product and inventory that the business has available. Upgrading the lighting can be a common need for businesses that are in older buildings. In addition to the option of installing new lighting fixtures, it is also possible to upgrade existing lighting to options that have a substantially higher output. Regardless of the choice that you take for your business, the electrical system will need to be evaluated to avoid overloading it with these new features, and the installation will have to be completed correctly to reduce the risk of malfunctions or even severe damage occurring.
Breaker Box Replacements
The breaker box is one of the more important pieces of your commercial electrical system. This component will regulate the supply of power to avoid the risk of damaging overloads occurring. Upgrading the breaker box can be another type of electrical work that older buildings will often require. In addition to their older breaker boxes being more likely to suffer performance problems, it may also be the case that the older breaker box is not suited to the higher energy demands of modern businesses. Upgrading the breaker box can be a disruptive event as the power for the entire building will have to be turned off so the new breaker box can be safely installed. A commercial electrician will appreciate the extreme disruption that this can have on your business, and they may be able to work with you on scheduling this work to minimize the disruptions that it causes.
Electrical Surge Repairs
Electrical surges can be some of the most damaging problems that this part of your building can experience. When an electrical surge occurs, it is possible for all of the electrical equipment that is connected to outlets to suffer damage. However, it is also possible for these surges to damage the wiring and other components of the electrical system. If your building has experienced a major electrical surge, hiring a commercial electrician to complete a comprehensive assessment may allow you to understand the scope of this damage so the necessary repairs can be taken.
