Let Mr. Electric of Riverside Update Your Business

Technological advances in electric systems happen rapidly, so more businesses operate on outdated and insufficient wiring. This inadequacy leaves companies in trouble as their electrical systems can’t support their power needs to run equipment, computers, and other electronics. Furthermore, businesses investing in electrical upgrades for their buildings often don’t have their electrical panels as part of their projects. If your business has new wiring and other updates, you need a panel to support your newer system. Fortunately, Mr. Electric of Riverside helps companies stay safe and power their operations with commercial electrical panel upgrades in Riverside, CA. We can help you make the most of your commercial renovation or building updates with various electrical services. Electrical panels should always be a part of upgrading your business’s electrical system.

What Is an Electrical Panel?

Many business owners leave all electrical insight to professionals whenever dealing with their buildings’ power needs. However, it’s always better to know about your electrical panel and the other components supporting your commercial operation. Mr. Electric of Riverside covers your electrical needs with exceptional service and valuable shared expertise. An electrical panel is a vital component of your electrical system, providing power to your business’s lighting, HVAC system, equipment, and anything else depending on electricity to function. Your utility company supplies the power that flows into your commercial building, and it starts its journey in your panel before branching out to bigger and then smaller electrical branches. Every business needs a properly functioning electrical panel to operate safely and maintain productivity. Additionally, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) require electrical panels at businesses to have a “dead front.” This feature protects live parts against exposure to people operating equipment, effectively preventing electric shock.

Where Can I Find My Business’s Electrical Panel?

You can identify your electrical panel as a gray or painted metal box, and it’s typically in an area that’s easily accessible and out of your way to avoid blocking it. Blocking an electrical panel is a safety violation, according to NFPA and OSHA codes. However, if you have trouble finding your electrical panel, it might be outside your building. An old electrical panel can be ineffective and dangerous for your business because of its antiquated design and inability to support your electrical needs. The following are examples of problems an old electrical panel can cause:

  • Flickering lights
  • Needing to turn off an appliance to use another
  • Melted electrical wires
  • Defective circuit breakers fail to trip, leading to overheating, shocks, and fires
  • Fuses frequently blowing or breakers constantly tripping
  • Endangering your employees, customers, and property’s safety because of electric shock and fires
