Electrical Safety Inspections for Businesses

Getting an electrical safety inspection is essential for your business. Over time, your electrical system experiences wear and tear from consistent use, which can lead to issues. Having your electrical wiring inspected is one of the most important things to keep your property safe from hazards. If you want to protect your business from a potential fire, or other electrical issues, then an electrical safety inspection from Prime Electrical Services is what you need. 

Differences And Similarities Between Residential And Commercial Inspections

A licensed professional must perform both residential and commercial electrical inspections, who will determine whether your electrical system is in good working order. During either inspection, the inspector will examine the electrical panel to identify potential issues, inspect the wiring, and ensure your breakers are in good working order. 

Since commercial electrical systems are usually larger than residential systems, commercial inspections take longer. Depending on the system’s complexity, you may also need a master electrician to evaluate it. In residential properties, a home inspector may do an electrical inspection as part of a larger home inspection. 

Commercial Electrical Safety Inspection Benefits

The most obvious benefits of electrical safety inspections are that they protect your employees, customers, and profit margin. Inspections keep your electrical system in good repair, which means your store or office is safer for those working inside it. A safer building also means you won’t have to worry about the cost of repairs after an electrical fire.  

Why You Need a Safety Inspection

Regular electrical safety inspections highlight the need for wiring repairs or replacements.

Wires, connectors, conduits, and other components can become worn with time

This can cause outlets to not work properly, lights to flicker, or even cause fires. A safety inspection gives you the opportunity to recognize problems with your electrical system before they escalate. It’s much cheaper to prevent a problem than have an electrician repair new or existing damage. Having an expert from prime electrical services can help you identify any risks to your property, whether that be wet and damp locations, combustible materials, or improperly stored electrical equipment.

Identify Electrical Defects

It’s probable that, depending on the age of your building, multiple contractors have taken care of your wiring and other electrical needs. That said, there may be flaws, inconsistencies, or defects in your wiring that may put you at risk for electrical fires or other electrical hazards. 

Commercial Electrical Safety Inspections

Find Potential Risks & Fire Hazards

As your building uses more electricity, and more and more outlets are used, defective or damaged wiring has the potential to cause a fire. As well, it is always smart to practice smart fire risk safety measures like removing the fuel from all ignition sources when not currently in use. 

Discover Potential Overloads

Electrical overload is a potentially very serious issue that more than likely you won’t know happens until it’s too late. An overload happens when too much electricity, or current, goes through your electrical wiring which can make them hot. When your wires get hot, there’s a risk they can melt and start a fire. 

Why You Need Electrical Repairs

According to the National Fire Protection Association, thousands of commercial structures experience fire damage every year. These incidents cause injuries, deaths, and cost business owners millions of dollars in property damages. 

Regular electrical inspections and repairs resolve potential electrical malfunctions and failures, saving business owners vast amounts of money—and saving the lives of their employees and customers. 

When Your Business Needs a New Inspection

It’s in the best interests of your business to have annual inspections of your commercial electrical system.

FAQs about Commercial Electrical Safety Inspections

How Can An Inspection Improve Safety?

An electrical safety inspection can improve the safety of your business by detecting problems before they become safety hazards. Things like outdated wiring or improperly installed electrical panels can cause power outages—or even electrical fires. 

Regular inspections can prevent these problems and provide you peace of mind.

Can It Save The Business Money?

Electrical inspections can save your business a lot of money. Detecting and resolving problems early prevents them from becoming dangerous and costly hazards later on.

Inspections can also tell you when it’s time to upgrade your system. Since newer systems require less power to run efficiently, upgrading can potentially lower your electric bill.

Will It Keep Me Up To Code?

The main purpose of electrical inspections is to keep you up to code. Inspectors specifically look for code violations—or things that could become code violations—so you can take care of them proactively and avoid fines. 

How much will the inspection cost?

An electrical inspection in New Jersey typically costs between $110 and $125. Depending on the size of your business’s building, the inspection may cost more. However, building repairs and fines are far more costly than nearly any electrical inspection.
