Commercial Electric Panel Upgrade
Having a reliable electrical system is an important part of living in a modern world. However, when Norfolk business owners choose to move said business into a previously owned building, assessing the current wiring situation tends to be left off the list of renovations. Plenty of work goes into dividing up the areas of the building and designating them as offices, showrooms, stockrooms, etc., and furnishing them appropriately. But no matter how amazing the space looks when the remodeling is complete, if the electrical system isn’t updated, you’re likely to run into a few problems.
Nipper Electric is a local company with years of experience helping clients determine their electrical needs and finding solutions to satisfy them. Our electricians can work with you to identify the best setup for your business and update your electric panel to better suit your level of power consumption.
The Purpose of Electrical Panels
When people envision their electrical systems, they generally picture the wiring. While wires are essential to delivering power throughout the building, the electrical panel is what ties them all together, acting as a command center of sorts. From the electrical panel, you can isolate various different circuits in the building, making it easier to address any wiring issues with minimal disruption and with high regard for employee safety. In fact, electrical panels are so vital that the Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) require that they be kept in compliance with current workplace safety codes.
