Offices, cafes, manufacturing warehouses, no matter what type of business or location – you need electricity and therefore a commercial electrician!
While we take it for granted most days that our Geelong office lights go on when we flick the switch, our oven fires up with no issues or even our coffee machine springs to life; – electricity can stop working in the blink of an eye. Having a qualified Geelong commercial electrician on call for help is essential to keep your business running smooth.
Why your business needs a commercial electrician
Commercial buildings are more prone to electrical issues due to complex wiring systems, multiple large machines/appliances drawing power simultaneously, and the age of the buildings typically used for commercial businesses. Add lack of building maintenance or upgrades, and you potentially have an electrical disaster waiting to strike.
Common electrical problems in Geelong
There are three common electrical problems in commercial buildings that we often see around Geelong, Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula businesses.
1/ Tripping circuit breakers
A circuit breaker shuts off its electrical flow if it detects an overloaded circuit. Overloaded circuits and switchboards result from using too much electricity but not having the right number of outlets or circuits. Therefore, if your Torquay business frequently suffers tripping circuit breakers and switches, it is undoubtedly a sign your electrical switchboard needs upgrading. You may also need a circuit added to handle your business’s power capacity requirements.
Ignoring tripping circuits may cause an electrical fire; therefore, you must have an experienced Torquay commercial electrician fix it immediately.
2/ Redundant wires
Undoubtedly, unless you are the first tenant or owner of your commercial Ocean Grove business chances are another business has occupied the property.
Understandably, different businesses have different electrical requirements, so the office or warehouse your business uses may have had extra wiring or circuits installed in the past. It is important to note that redundant wires that have not been appropriately capped or terminated by your local Ocean Grove commercial electrician are live with power, which means you could receive an electric shock if you contact the wire. Never touch a wire that appears not to be attached to anything. Contact your local Ocean Grove electrician to have the cables looked at and properly terminated.
3/ Not enough circuits powering your Geelong business
Technology is rapidly advancing, which means more complex machinery, and more electronic devices to conduct business. Many Geelong businesses located in older buildings. It is therefore no surprise that often we see overloaded electrical circuits and extension cords powering multiple electronic devices. These devices might include laptops, EFTPOS machines, printers, lamps and more. Not to mention larger machinery sharing outlets with an extension cord chock-a-block! Don’t get us wrong, extension cords are fine, but if not used properly, they can:
- Overload your existing circuits
- Increase your risk of electrical fires
- Cause short-circuits
- Be a tripping hazard
