3 Signs Your Facility Needs Electrical Repair

Running a business is a lot of work, and it requires you to attend to many different tasks at once. While many of the specific tasks on your list can vary depending on what kind of business you have, a few remain the same, and one of those is maintaining your facility. Here at Lake Electric Co. Inc., we want to help you take the best possible care of your business, and we provide the expert electrical services you need to do just that. In this article, we’ll go over three signs that your business needs electrical repair in order to help you act quickly to prevent serious problems.

  1. Flickering Lights- One sign that your facility needs electrical repair is flickering or dimming lights. If just one light fixture is behaving this way, then the problem is likely isolated to just that light, but if multiple fixtures are affected, then you most likely have a problem with your wiring.
  2. Warm, Discolored, or Burnt Outlets- Another sign that you need electrical repair services is your outlets becoming discolored or even burnt. This happens when electricity arcs out from the wires and hits the outlet or switch plate, scorching the plastic. Another indicator that this kind of problem is happening is if your switches or outlets are warm to the touch.
  3. Tripping Circuit Breakers- A third sign that your facility needs electrical repair is frequent tripped circuit breakers. While this happening once or twice is nothing to worry about, if it happens again and again you likely have a serious problem on your hands and should have your system checked out as soon as possible.
