When It’s Time to Call a Professional and What to Expect on a Service Call

November 8, 2017 Published by Leave your thoughts

Not every issue with your electricity is necessarily cause for worry. But as an owner of a business, of course, you can’t really afford any downtime.

Here are four warning signs that you may need to call a professional electrician for commercial electrical repair service in Nampa, ID, and what to expect on a service call:

  • Sudden loss of power: The most common warning sign is a sudden loss of power. If your building suddenly loses power, especially if it’s not due to the weather or an issue with the local grid, this is likely something to do with the power load overwhelming your breaker. If this begins to become a regular occurrence, you almost certainly need a professional electrician to come in, figure out what the problem is and fix it to prevent it from happening again in the future.
  • Flickering lights: If your lights are flickering without the power itself flickering, it’s a sign that some part of the connection has been damaged. If you catch the problem right when it starts, this can be a very simple issue to fix, but if you let it go it can really exacerbate the problem and cause damage further down in your electrical system.
  • Outlets spark when you plug things in: If your electrical outlet sparks when things get plugged in or when they are turned on, this can be a sign that there is an issue with wiring. Occasional sparks are normal, but watch your outlet to see if it heats up. If there’s something wrong with the wiring, the spark will be a precursor to the plug and the outlet heating up and melting. If this happens, cut the breaker that controls that outlet if you can, and call an electrician.
  • You lose power when you use a certain appliance: A lot of businesses rely on power-hungry machines to make their money. If there is one machine that regularly overruns your power and causes your breaker to cut when you use it, you need an electrician to come in and move this appliance onto its own circuit. This will keep it from overwhelming the rest of your electrical system and allow you to uninterruptedly use the machine that you need to do your business, while keeping your business running smoothly as well.
