COMMERCIAL ELECTRICAL TROUBLESHOOTING & REPAIR
Professional Electrical Service and Repair by Hickerson Brothers
There’s more to a repair than just fixing the symptoms. While some electricians may simply swap out the faulty part or add in a patch that temporarily fixes your problem, Hickerson Brothers Electric Service takes the time to find the root cause and fix that.
We know that proper electrical service and data communication are essential to your business. Wiring problems, faulty switches, and stripped insulation can lead to other problems that are either expensive to repair or can lead to future system failures. That’s why, when you notice the lights flickering or strange power losses, we don’t just fix the light, we find why it stopped working in the first place.
Common Light Commercial Electrical Problems
Not all electrical issues end in a permanent off state. There are plenty of events that can happen on a day-to-day basis that should notify you of an electrical issue.
- Do you have an old electrical panel, or a circuit breaker that trips repeatedly?
- Do you ever smell the scent of burning plastic near an outlet or light switch?
- Do you hear sizzling, like a steak on the grill near an outlet or switch?
- Does the outlet or switch become hot during use?
- Are Ethernet Ports Failing?
- Do you have a nonfunctional outlet?
- Does a light switch or Sensor No Longer Work?
All of these are clear evidence that there’s an electrical problem in your building. You should always be aware of strange smells when wiring is involved, as most odd scents are caused by burning carbon or insulation.
Electrical issues typically stem from two problems: age and code violations. As we work on fixing whatever is causing the problem, we’ll take a look at your wiring and connections to make sure that everything is safe and secure. If we see a safety hazard, or something that’s likely to cause problems in the near future, we’ll let you know about it so it can be remedied as soon as possible.
