Common Commercial Electrical Problems

July 13, 2023

Electrical safety on the commercial properties is one of the key priorities for businesses. That’s why it is critical to have a licensed master electrician inspect and service the electrical systems on a regular basis, especially if these systems have shown to be prone to frequent faults. In this blog, we will review some of the most common electrical issues found within commercial electrical systems.


What are the common commercial electrical problems?


Breakers tripping frequently

Tripping breakers are a sign of a ground fault, a circuit overload or a short circuit. Unfortunately, tripping breakers are frequently overlooked which can further lead to more serious problems that can even damage the property and harm the occupants. Fortunately, master electricians are well-versed in troubleshooting these electrical problems and can fix them in no time. 


Exposed cables and wires

If a building went through a renovation or construction recently, chances are some wires and cables are left exposed, posing a serious safety hazard to occupants, employees and visitors of the building. Exposed wires and cables should never be handled by unlicensed personnel. Only a licensed electrician can fix exposed wiring and cables. 


Equipment malfunction 

Commercial properties have lots of equipment powered by electricity such as air conditioners, copy machines, computers, or even heavy machinery. If the company has no full-time electrical maintenance staff available on premises, the best way to handle electrical problems is to call an electrical services company or an electrical contractor. 



While sparks are not as common as other electrical problems, they do occur. And when they do, it is imperative to call an electrical services company immediately for inspection and repairs. A master electrician will be able to identify the root of the problem and repair it immediately, preventing the problem from getting worse.
