CMI Lighting electrical repairs

If you spot these signs, we recommend electrical repairs for your commercial building.

Is your commercial building having electrical issues? Minor glitches are common, but if you are frequently experiencing problems related to your power, you likely need an electrical repair from an experienced commercial electrician. At CMI Lighting, we can inspect your building and make the necessary electrical repairs that will ensure continued function and safety for your electrical power. If you think it’s time for inspections and repairs, the following four signs are often the key indicators of the need for electrical attention. 

Widespread Lighting Issues

If you are experiencing widespread and frequent lighting issues in your building, you most likely need repair work. The most problematic lighting issues include flickering or dim lights, even after changing a light bulb. These problems could be caused by an overloaded circuit and cannot be fixed by changing the bulbs themselves. 

Blown Fuses

A blown fuse is a common mishap, especially in buildings with vast electrical systems, and it can be resolved by paying a visit to your breaker box. However, if blown fuses occur on a regular basis, you most likely need electrical repairs for your panel. Blown fuses can be caused by a number of factors and can cause significant damage to your wires and outlets if ignored.

Loose Power Outlets

Loose power outlets are a sign of a loose connection and can be hazardous if left unaddressed. If you spot loose outlets, you may notice other signs of electrical safety risks, including burnt wires, and the loose outlet itself may cause sparks or shocks. Electrical repairs are recommended as soon as possible if you encounter loose power outlets. 

Buzzing Noise

Do you hear a constant buzzing in your building? If you hear unusual sounds emanating from your electrical system, this indicates that your electrical system needs an inspection and potential repairs. A buzzing noise is often caused by a loose wire, an overloaded wire, or an improperly grounded wire. All of those situations are fire hazards and must be fixed as soon as possible by a professional electrician.
