Common Commercial Lighting Issues That Electricians Can Fix

Commercial Lighting

Business owners have a lot on their agendas that require undivided attention: accounting and payroll, employee training and determining the best sales methods to build your company’s brand and positive reputation. This often leaves little time to address building maintenance issues or problems.

However, electrical problems pose a threat to your overall business operations and can’t be ignored, and it could be dangerous if you attempt to repair those issues yourself. That’s why it’s always best to seek the help of a team of licensed commercial electricians. Here are some of the most common problems commercial electricians can help address. 

Dim or Flickering Lights:

Other than being irritating, dim or flickering lights might not seem like a huge issue. It may be just a faulty light bulb or light fixture, but there could also be a more serious electrical issue that needs to be examined by an experienced electrician. Some of the most common causes of dimming or flickering includes outdated wiring or an overloaded circuit. Old wiring can cause an electrical fire, which could cause serious damage to your business. In fact, in 2020 alone, fire departments responded to a fire on average every 23 seconds in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Association.

Commercial Lighting and Electrical Repair:

Businesses, factories, industrial buildings and warehouses often utilize different, larger scale electrical and lighting systems than residences do. For this reason, commercial lighting or electrical systems require much more extensive repair work than the average home.

While you might have gotten away with working on lighting issues at home, your business is another story. That’s where the help and training of a licensed commercial electrician is required. Our team at Tapps Electric has the proper tools, training and expertise working with complex commercial electrical issues. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that they will be able to get things up and running safely without interruption to your daily business operations.

Lighting Updates:

Having the right lighting in your business is key to maintaining a safe work environment. LED lights are some of the most efficient types of commercial lighting uses for businesses around the country. These energy-saving lights not only save significant money on utility bills, but they also are more reliable and have a longer lifespan. In fact, LEDs use up to 90% less energy and last up to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. If your business is not taking advantage of all the benefits of LED lighting, a commercial electrician will be able to help you install new lights. Whether it’s lay-in lighting fixtures, troffer lights, track lighting, or something else, commercial electricians are knowledgeable about which lights are the best option. 

Panel Upgrades:

The electrical panel for your business is at the heart of your business. Without it, you can’t help customers, sell or create your products, or keep operations flowing smoothly. If your electrical panel needs an upgrade, there may be a few signs. You might notice cracking sounds coming from the panel itself, burned electrical wires, or frequently tripped breakers. These issues can be dangerous and could risk a full electrical system breakdown, which costs you time and money. Our team is well-versed in electrical panel upgrades and replacements, no matter how big or small your building is.

When it comes to everything related to commercial electricity – complete rewires, panel upgrades, light fixture replacements, or repairs – our Pierce County team of electricians at Tapps Electric will get the job done right the first time.
