Owning a business comes with its responsibilities, and part of those responsibilities is ensuring a safe and efficient workplace. The electrical system of your office may be outdated and, in some cases, hazardous. Spring is the perfect time to get an electrical upgrade for your office in Jonesboro, AR because the temperatures are typically in the 60s, and you can get away without heat and air conditioning if needed during the upgrade process. Here are signs that your office needs an electrical upgrade.
Flickering lights could just mean that the bulbs are nearing the end of their lifespan and need to be replaced. However, if you replace the bulb and the problem continues, it could mean that the wires supplying power to the bulb have loose connections or are damaged. You might need to update the wiring, breaker panel, and/or the light fixture. Our electricians at Chamberlain Electric LLC can solve the problem of your flickering lights and provide solutions.
Outlets That Spark or Don’t Work
Outlets that spark when you plug in a device likely have loose or corroded wiring. This is a serious fire hazard. The outlet should not be used, and an electrician should be called right away.
An outlet that simply doesn’t work could be the result of a connection that has come apart, a rodent chewing on the wire, or a significant problem with the overall electrical system of your office. Our experienced technicians have the experience and knowledge to troubleshoot and fix these kinds of issues.
Electrical System Is Not Compliant With Current Building Codes
A lot of businesses run out of older buildings, and with that comes the chances of an outdated electrical system. The electrical system may not be able to safely power modern office equipment. Overloading an electrical system can result in electrical fires. Additionally, if the electrical system of your office building is outdated, you may be required to update it for insurance reasons, and there is no better time to do this than in the spring.
Circuit Breakers Keep Tripping
This is a big red flag that your system is overloaded and not equipped to handle the amount of power you are pulling. The purpose of a circuit breaker is to cut the power when there is too much current running through a single fuse. It is a safety measure that helps prevent fires. If your breakers trip frequently, then you need to get an electrician out to your office to fix the problem.
If you are experiencing one or more of these issues, the chances that you need an electrical upgrade are high.
