Our team at Lake Electric Co. Inc. wants to help you keep your electrical system in good working order. We have extensive experience in the electrical industry, and we can provide expert repair services whenever your system malfunctions. In this article, we’ll go over a few ways to tell if you need industrial electrical repair services.
- Flickering Lights – One warning sign that you may need industrial electrical repair services is flickering lights. If just one light in your facility is flickering, then it’s probably a problem with just that specific bulb or fixture. However, if multiple lights are flickering, then there’s probably a bigger issue with your system as a whole.
- Sparking – Another sign you likely need industrial electrical repair services is excessive sparking. When you plug something into an outlet, it’s normal for there to be a small spark as the plug connects to the circuit. However, the spark should only occur when the plug is touching the outlet or is partially into it—if a spark leaps toward the plug when it’s an inch or more away, or the spark is large in size, then there is a problem that requires professional attention.
- Burning Odors – A third clear sign you need industrial electrical repairs is burning odors coming from your wiring. Burning smells mean some of your wires have become hot enough to burn their protective coatings or the outlet covers they are attached to, and that will lead to further problems unless it is addressed as soon as possible.
