The U.S. Energy Information Administration states that in 2014, average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer was 10,932-kilowatt hours (kWh), an average of 911 KWh per month. If that is the amount of electricity one household uses, one can only imagine the amount of electricity a commercial business or restaurant uses. Electricity is a resource all businesses, small or large, rely on for everyday function and productivity. No business can afford to cut corners with improper or faulty electrical work in a building.
In the early stages of starting a small commercial business or restaurant, the electrical wiring is a crucial element. Without the proper electrical wiring and systems in place, the construction process can become drawn out and complicated. No one enjoys having to backtrack due to a mistake or to missing a crucial step. You need an electrician service that you can rely on, with the ever-changing building codes, applications and interpretations of different municipalities.
Even the smallest mistake in electrical wiring for a building can cause an electrical fire. A mistake can also lead to accidents, explosions or damage to personnel in the building. To keep the building up to code and keep the occupants safe, Exceptional Electric does not cut corners.
Signs your building may need electrical repair
It can be difficult to complete work in a building that has faulty wiring or unreliable electricity. Even a faulty outlet can slow down the work day and cause more problems if left unresolved. Fortunately, when a commercial building or business has electrical issues, it will be noticeable. Most electrical issues are noticeable and will result in more than just the power shutting off. Some of the main signs that indicate a hazardous electrical problem include:
- Sparking or sparks near electrical sources
- An acrid smell throughout the building
- Smoke in certain places or throughout the building
- Warping of materials placed around outlets or light switches
If you notice any of these issues in the building, have one of our electricians come out and look at the problem as soon as possible. Our electrician will be able to determine the issue and treat it safely. One mistake in attempting to fix a problem and an electrical fire can break out. In the interest of safety, if your building is old or is displaying any of these issues, have one of our electricians inspect the building.
