Emergency Electrical Service FAQs

Why Does My Breaker Keep Tripping?

A breaker typically trips to prevent electricity from overloading the main system, which can cause overheating and potentially cause a fire.

Frequent tripping might indicate a circuit is overloaded. It may also mean that there is a short circuit, or a need for an electrical panel upgrade. Addressing this as soon as possible can stop any potential damage to your equipment and ensure the safety of your building and investment into the business.

What Are the Risks of Overloading a Circuit?

Overloading a circuit can negatively impact your business. This has several risks to it, from causing frequent outages, to potential damage from electrical fires.

This excessive electrical demand on a single circuit can lead to overheated wires, damaged appliances, and potential fire hazards. If you find yourself frequently overloading a circuit, it’s a clear indication that your electrical system may need an upgrade to support your business’s current and future needs safely.

What is Smart Wiring?

Smart wiring is an advanced system that integrates your electrical and data networks, optimizing the efficiency and control of your business’s technology infrastructure. For businesses, this means enhanced control over lighting, security, and data systems, potentially leading to improved operational efficiency, energy savings, and a better overall management of the technological aspects of your electrical system.

When Should You Have an Electrical Safety Check?

An electrical safety check is important for identifying potential hazards before they become serious problems.

For commercial and industrial buildings, it’s recommended to conduct a safety check annually, but more frequently if you have a high dependency on electrical systems, have undergone significant modifications, or use heavy electrical machinery.

These routine safety checks can uncover hidden issues such as outdated wiring, overloaded circuits, or equipment faults that could lead to downtime or safety risks if left unaddressed.

How Do You Get Emergency Electricity?

Temporary power solutions, such as generators or portable power units, can be put into place relatively quickly to keep essential operational systems running.

Our team is equipped to assess your needs and provide the necessary equipment to mitigate any downtime during repair work. This interim solution allows your business to continue operating while we work on resolving other problems with the electrical system, ensuring minimal disruption to your business.
