A few of our most popular commercial and industrial electrical services include but are not limited to:

Circuit Breakers

Tripped Circuit Breakers

Your businesses' electrical system will trip when it has too much electricity running through it. These problems are very common in commercial properties and usually stem from one of three culprits: circuit overloads, short circuits, and ground fault surges. Obviously, when your circuits are tripped regularly, your business operations suffer. To help solve your circuit breaker problems, our commercial electricians will come to your location for in-depth troubleshooting. Once we discover the root cause, we'll get to work on repairing your circuit breaker, so you can continue working and serving your customers.

Flickering Lights

Flickering Lights

Like tripped circuit breakers, dimming or flickering lights are among the most common commercial electrical problems in South Carolina. These issues typically stem from poor electrical connections. These poor connections will usually cause sparks, which can start fires and wreak havoc on your commercial building. While dimming lights might seem minor, if you leave this problem to fester, you could be looking at permanent damage to your businesses' electrical systems. Given the danger involved in fixing this problem, it's important that you work with a licensed business electrician like Engineered Electrical Solutions as soon as you're able to.

Dead Power Outlets

Dead Power Outlets

Dead power outlets aren't always dangerous, unlike other recurring commercial electrical issues. They are, however, disruptive to your company's productivity. Dead outlets are common in older commercial buildings and are often caused by circuit overloads. Connecting multiple high-wattage devices and appliances to the same power socket can cause overheating. When the power outlet overheats, it can lead to tripped circuit breakers. In some cases, the live wire catches fire and burns until it is disconnected. For a reliable solution using high-quality switches, sockets, and circuit breakers, it's best to hire a professional business electrician to get the job done right.

Residential Electrician vs. Commercial Electrician in Lugoff:
What's the Difference?

Finding a real-deal, qualified commercial electrician in South Carolina is harder than you might think. Whether it's due to availability or budget, you might be tempted to hire a residential electrician for your commercial electrical problem. While it's true that great residential electricians can help solve commercial issues in theory, it's always best to hire a business electrician with professional experience.

Unlike their residential colleagues, commercial electricians are licensed to deal with different materials and procedures suited specifically for businesses. Commercial wiring is much more complex than residential, and is strategically installed with maintenance, repair, and changes in mind. Additionally, commercial properties usually use a three-phase power supply, necessitating more schooling, skills, and technical ability to service.

The bottom line? If you're a business owner with commercial electricity problems, it's best to work with a licensed commercial electrician, like you will find at Engineered Electrical Solutions.

Woman dies after crash in Anderson County, coroner says

There have been several minor earthquakes in the Elgin area, which is about 25 miles northeast of Columbia.

A 2.5-magnitude quake was registered before 6 a.m. Monday near Elgin, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The earthquake was measured at a depth of six kilometers, officials said. This was the eighth earthquake.

Although this series of tremors have been coming in swift succession, clusters often happen. According to the South Carolina Emergency Management Division, the state typically averages up to 20 quakes each year.

Tips to keep safe as 10th earthquake strikes Lugoff-Elgin area

Emergency Management Division said.LUGOFF, S.C. — Residents in the Lugoff-Elgin area experienced two more earthquakes Wednesday, bringing the total to 10 for the area in just over a week.While none of the quakes have been strong enough to cause damage, Kathleen Baccomo, a resident, said at least one of the tremors woke her from her sleep."It just shook and my dog started crying a little bit, and I thought, oh my God, it had to be another one,” Ba...

"Drop, cover and hold on," Leaders with the S.C. Emergency Management Division said.

LUGOFF, S.C. — Residents in the Lugoff-Elgin area experienced two more earthquakes Wednesday, bringing the total to 10 for the area in just over a week.

While none of the quakes have been strong enough to cause damage, Kathleen Baccomo, a resident, said at least one of the tremors woke her from her sleep.

"It just shook and my dog started crying a little bit, and I thought, oh my God, it had to be another one,” Baccomo said. “I just kind of lay there and then I listen, and I wait, and I then I didn’t hear anything else, so I said, oh, thank God, it’s finally done, I hope.”

Concern over the quakes has led to a rise in visitors at local insurance companies like State Farm in Lugoff.

Gary Patterson, a 35-year state farm agent, said his office has received roughly 10 to 20 calls a day.

"Just today we had that many calls, inquiring about whether not their insurance covers earthquake and what they need to do to get the earthquake coverage on their home," Patterson said.

He spent much of his life in the area and was surprised by the number of quakes.

"I maybe remember one tremor in those years and then to have this many in such a short period of time is not normal," Patterson said. "My advice would be to check your homeowners policy to see if you have the coverage, and if you have any questions at all, call the company you’re dealing with.”

Outside of insurance, there are other ways to prepare.

The S.C. Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) monitors earthquakes and has a preparation guide.

"Drop, cover and hold on, is what we preach," Brandon Lavorgna, a division spokesman, said. "Whether it’s an earthquake, whether it’s a hurricane, winter weather, having a plan will make things a lot easier for everyone during that chaotic moment.”

The SCEMD suggest six ways to prepare before an earthquake:

During an earthquake, the division recommends taking cover under a sturdy piece of furniture, away from windows. If outdoors, move away from buildings, streetlights and utility wires into an open space, and, if driving, find a safe place to stop that is away from buildings, trees and overpasses.

Karen Watford, who lives in the Bishopville-area, is hoping they won't have to experience anymore tremors soon.

"...because it is scary, especially in a small town," Watford said.

Small magnitude 3.1 earthquake 21 miles northeast of Columbia, South Carolina, United States

A very shallow magnitude 3.1 earthquake was reported early morning near Columbia, Richland County, South Carolina, USA.According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Monday, May 9th, 2022, at 1:32 am local time at a very shallow depth of 0.9 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.5 earthquake.Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter. Weak shaking might have been felt in Elgin (pop. 1,500) located 4 miles from the epicenter, and Lugoff (pop. 7,400) 4 miles away.Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Camden (pop. 7,100) located 9 miles from the epicenter, Fredericksburg (pop. 7,100) 9 miles away, and Dentsville (pop. 14,100) 15 miles away. In Columbia (pop. 133,800, 21 miles away), West Columbia (pop. 16,100, 23 miles away), Saint Andrews (pop. 21,200, 24 miles away), and Sumter (pop. 40,800, 28 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.

If confirmed, we can expect more accurate data to emerge in the next few minutes. The location, magnitude and time mentioned are indicative, based on our best-fit seismic model. They are temporary until our AllQuakes monitoring service receives more exact scientific data from a national or international seismological agency. Check back here shortly and stay safe.
