Our staff at Comet Electric knows how important your business is to you, and we want to assist you in any ways that we can. Maintaining the state of your building, which includes the electrical wiring, is an important element of running any business. While wire is built to endure a long time, it is not indestructible, and you will need to repair or improve it at some point. Here are some of the most common signs that it’s time to upgrade your commercial wiring.

Lights That Dim – When you use the microwave or vacuum cleaner, do your lights dim? It could indicate that the circuits or wiring are overloaded. Check the wiring and the circuit breaker for that portion of your business.

Discoloration or Scorch Marks – The appearance of scorch marks or discolored places around your outlets or switch plates is one indicator that your business wiring is on its last legs. The burn marks are generated by electricity arcing from the cables and striking the plastic. Even if your outlets appear to be in good working order, you should check to see whether they are warm to the touch–if they are, you most certainly have a wiring issue.

Wires That are Frayed – A wire can fray for a variety of causes, including age, heat, corrosion, and bending. If you discover frayed wires or wires that have been nicked, pinched, or punctured in your business, contact us immediately.
