Wireman Electric, your trusted Vancouver electrician, specializes in providing top-notch commercial electrical services, including office electrician services. Here are the ten most common electrical problems that offices often encounter and how Wireman Electric can assist with commercial electrical installations and solutions.

Faulty Wiring

Outdated or damaged wiring can cause power interruptions, flickering lights, and even electrical fires. Wireman Electric offers comprehensive wiring inspections and repairs to ensure your office’s electrical systems are up to code and safe.

Overloaded Circuits

Office spaces frequently rely on multiple devices and equipment. Overloading circuits can lead to tripped breakers or even electrical fires. We can assess your electrical load and distribute it effectively to prevent overloads.

Circuit Breaker Tripping

Frequent tripping of circuit breakers can disrupt workflow and pose safety risks. Our office electrician services include diagnosing the cause of tripped breakers and making necessary repairs.

Flickering Lights

Flickering or dimming lights can be frustrating and decrease productivity. We can identify and fix issues with lighting circuits, switches, or fixtures to ensure a well-lit workspace.

Outlet Problems

Inoperable or loose outlets can hinder the use of essential office equipment. Wireman Electric can inspect and repair outlets, ensuring they are secure and functional.

Power Surges

Power surges can damage sensitive electronic equipment and data. Installing surge protection devices and maintaining them can safeguard your office from these costly events.

Inadequate Electrical Capacity

As technology evolves, your office’s electrical needs may increase. Wireman Electric can assess your current capacity and perform commercial electrical installations to accommodate growth.

HVAC System Issues

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems often require significant electrical power. Problems with these systems can disrupt comfort and productivity. Our office electrician services include HVAC electrical repairs and installations.

Emergency Lighting Malfunctions

Emergency lighting is crucial for safety during power outages or evacuations. Regular maintenance and testing by Wireman Electric ensure these systems are reliable when needed.

Full disclosure - I am Harm's sister but I've decided that it's finally time to leave his company a review. You can see through the 200 + reviews that Harm and his team are reliable. My husband and I have used Wireman for a number of years for various projects. They do great work and leave the site clean. On top of that, Harm is easy to deal with and is honest when providing electrical advice. Keep up the great work!

Harm was extremely professional and committed, persisting to find a solution for our portable power situation. He worked with us to get our portable onto a dedicated electrical service instead of being powered by a gas generator! As a non-profit organization, every penny counts and this will lower our costs and our carbon footprint. Thank you to Harm and your team for a great job!!

Second time using their services because I was impressed by the great service they provided regarding installing my bathroom fan. Ali came this time to fix 2 outlets in my kitchen. After checking both out, it turned out only 1 needed fixing. He explained to me what the issue was and also checked out why 1 outlet that had a smart plug that was not working. Don't call anyone else! This company is the best.
