Electrical systems aren’t something that can or should be fixed by just anyone. Unless you have the proper knowledge, training, and tools, you as a commercial facility owner could risk serious injury to yourself, and even death, if you take electrical matters into your own hands. To prevent the worst-case scenario, call on electrical experts such as our team at JLK Mechanical for your commercial electrical services needs. And to help you understand when to call the experts, here are three signs of when commercial electrical services are needed.
- Tripping breaker: The circuit breaker is responsible for protecting the electrical system from reaching dangerously high levels, which could cause electrical damage or spark a fire. Sometimes, a tripped breaker can be fixed by resetting the breaker, but any further attempts should be left to the professionals. Common issues can include damaged wires, ground faults, or short-circuiting. All of these should be handled by calling for commercial electrical services.
- Defective outlets: Outlets can get old and result in a less-than-ideal performance or a complete lack of functioning. Sometimes, other reasons for a defective outlet can be overheated wires from strong electrical currents, loose wiring, or maybe just a defective component. Whatever the reason, refrain from performing the necessary repairs yourself and call a professional.
- Heated breakers and outlets: If your breaker and/or outlets are hot to the touch, it could mean that there is an overloaded circuit. This could be a sign of a more serious problem, and you shouldn’t hesitate to call for the electrical experts.
