Service Panels Los Angeles
Rapid advancements in technology are moving businesses forward like never before. They enable companies to be more successful and productive – but they also require substantially more power. As such, commercial spaces need to be outfitted with sufficient electrical wiring that can accommodate the needs of businesses today. Unfortunately, many buildings still have outdated service panels that are overloaded and on the brink of failure, and thus need to be upgraded in order to keep the business running and prevent safety hazards.
What is a service panel?
Also known as an electrical panel, a service panel provides your commercial building with electricity. The power from the utility company flows into the panel and then branches off to distribute electricity to the different sub-panels and appliances. This panel needs to be functioning optimally to ensure that the company is both safe and productive. An old and inefficient system can cause a number of problems, including:
- Blown fuses
- Flickering lights
- Breakers that trip frequently
- Melted electrical wires
- Defective circuit breakers that don't trip when overloaded
- A dangerous environment for staff, customers and other visitors
An upgraded service panel for today's businesses
Today’s businesses use a lot of electrical appliances, and many of them require special outlets or dedicated circuits to run properly. An upgraded electrical panel can meet these increasing demands while ensuring that your building is compliant with the latest safety codes. With that said, here are just a few telltale signs that your panel may be malignant or should be replaced:
- Corrosion or rust around the system
- Crackling sounds coming from the panel
- The regular use of extension cords
- Devices that don’t operate at full power
- The inability to use certain appliances simultaneously
- The panel is made by an old, discontinued company such as Zinsco, Federal Pacific, etc.
In addition, a new service panel will be necessary if you make an addition or renovation to the space, or if the building features a fuse block or split panel bus, as this technology is outdated and needs to be modernized immediately. Installing new equipment, such as copier machines, printers, servers and computers is also a reason to call an electrician and have your panel evaluated and upgraded.
