4 Signs Your Commercial Building Needs An Electrical Wiring Upgrade

A functional commercial building is vital to the success of any company. Functionality in a building is essential because this is the main hub where you’ll conduct all of your business matters as a business owner. With that said, it is vital that your electrical wiring is properly maintained. Without electricity, it is nearly impossible to operate as a business. Here are several key indicators that your building needs an electrical wiring upgrade.


Know these troubling signs.

Circuit Breakers Constantly Go Out

Circuit breakers play an integral role in your electrical system. They are responsible for powering off your electric system if something unfortunate happens. If they become damaged, your exposure to an electrical fire increases. If your breakers are constantly tripping, that is a precursor to further issues. There likely is some older wiring within your system. Many commercial and industrial buildings are a bit older and contain outdated wires.

Your Electrical Panel Is Always Hot

No components or parts of your electrical system should feel hot or warm at any time. Noticing any warmth in your panels and or light switches is problematic. Your electrical system is more than likely being overworked. If you notice your electrical panel is hot, you should contact our team at Tri Star Electric to rectify the problem.

You Need More Outlets

A commercial-sized building should always have more than enough electrical outlets. Your business is rapidly growing, so you need sufficient outlets to power all of your equipment. If you use extension cords more often, that is another sign that you need a wiring upgrade. With an upgrade, your wiring can be reconstructed to provide you with more electrical outlets.

Flickering Lights Are Common

Flickering Lights are another sign that you need an upgrade within your electrical wiring. Flickering lights can lead to other issues, such as sparks and loud humming sounds when your lights are on. There also could be a sign of loose electrical wiring in your system.
