Why you should get an electrical inspection for your business


Electricity is one of those things that are out of sight out of mind until something happens like an electrical failure, a circuit keeps tripping, or worse an electrical emergency. TLC has been providing commercial electrical services for businesses throughout New Mexico for over ten years. We recommend to all our customers, either residential or commercial, that an inspection be done at least once a year.

What is included in an electrical inspection?

A licensed TLC electrician will arrive on-site and inspect all the electrical components in your facility. They will identify if there are any faulty circuit breakers, loose wires, or signs of burn marks on the panel. The electrician will check to see if there are any hot spots where a circuit might be overloaded and help narrow down any other potential electrical problems that might occur. An inspection would also include the checking and tightening of all screws on lugs and breakers, as well as identifying any physical damage to the electrical system. After the inspection, you will receive a list of what areas are at risk, what needs to be fixed immediately, and what isn’t a concern.

TLC has a dedicated team of licensed electricians that focus on commercial and industrial electrical systems. Schedule your inspection today to prevent unexpected repairs.

Why should I have a licensed electrician perform an inspection?

It’s important to have a someone with an electrical license and experience perform an inspection. Our commercial electricians are experienced with high voltage systems that are used in business facilities. They also have experience working with multiple panels and power distributions for large scale buildings. Our experts understand the safety precautions that must be taken when working with electricity in commercial and industrial buildings and facilities.

How often should you get an electrical inspection?

We recommend that business owners and facility managers get an electrical inspection yearly, this will help identify any potential problems before they become bigger repairs.

What are the signs that I need to call TLC for an electrical inspection?

  • Flickering lights
  • Circuit breakers that need to be reset often
  • Loss of power
  • Water damage
  • Older buildings
  • New tenants or new ownership

Will it save me money in the long run? How much does the inspection cost?

Being part of a preventive maintenance electrical program will help prevent major electrical equipment failures, fire hazards, and electrical shock due to faulty equipment. The average electrical emergency for a business can cost thousands of dollars in repair and labor costs, which doesn’t include the impact on your day-to-day business revenue. If you are part of the TLC Commercial Maintenance program (CMA) you’d be automatically scheduled to receive an electrical inspection yearly. The cost of the inspection depends on the size of your business and how many panels you have.
