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 Mineral Springs:
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.

Hot Springs recognized as state's 'best small town for a weekend escape'

HOT SPRINGS - For the second time this year, a major national publication has recognized a small mountain town in Madison County.

Only In Your State, an online travel publication that launched in 2015, named Hot Springs "the best small town in North Carolina for a weekend escape."

"Not only is Hot Springs visually stunning — the river and mountain views are abundant — but it’s also filled with fascinating attractions, including the geothermal waters for which the town is named," the article said. "Whether you’re soaking in a mineral tub overlooking the French Broad River or walking the famous Appalachian Trail which passes through downtown, you’ll feel as though you’ve discovered your home away from home."

The article gives nod to a number of local businesses in the piece, too.

"From opportunities to explore the famous Appalachian Trail to the beautiful banks of the French Broad River, Hot Springs offers an abundance of recreational activities," the author, Beth, said. "Equally impressive are the locally-owned businesses dotting the historic downtown. The combination of all of these things is what makes Hot Springs truly unique."

Big Pillow Brewing, Hot Springs Resort & Spa, Smoky Mountain Diner, Spring Creek Tavern, Artisun Gallery & Cafe, Vaste Riviere Provisions and Hot Springs Rafting Company are all named in the feature piece.

The glowing review marks the second such recognition bestowed on Hot Springs recently, as Travel + Leisure also named Hot Springs one of the "10 best small towns on the East Coast."

Hot Springs Mayor Abby Norton said she was in favor of the Only In Your State article.

"The author captured the essence of Hot Springs when she said it offers 'an endless supply of adventure and charm,'" Norton said. "Hot Springs offers that, and more. Our visitors experience a sense of belonging due to the hospitality of business owners and residents alike. I've always said we live in the best place on earth."

Other county residents were not as supportive of the recognition.

Walnut resident Chris Heaney said she commutes to Hot Springs often and worries that the town's recognition could potentially attract more visitors than the town's infrastructure can handle.

"(There is only) one major road through," Heaney said. "Whenever traffic is rerouted and 25/70 is blocked, it creates unsafe conditions on the few other roads in town. Parking is deficient in both Marshall and Hot Springs because the terrain prohibits many level places. There is only one bridge over the river. There's only one way to get there from any direction across the river. If the town is clogged with drive-through tourists, local folks will have a hard time parking and shopping."

Hot Springs resident Wendy Stancil said she is used to the trend of Hot Springs being recognized and feels the concerns about lack of infrastructure may be overblown.

"This happens every few years — an article comes out or we make a top 10 list and we see a bump in tourism that season, and then things morph back to the steadiness we know," Stancil said. "It’s a fact, in Hot Springs anyway: We don’t have enough parking, and it’s a real conundrum because there really isn’t any additional land downtown available for it. So the town has a maximum amount of 'busy,' regardless of how many articles are written."

Instead, Stancil said she feels the town's biggest issue may be a lack of affordable housing.

"The issue seems to be countrywide, but it is affecting the service industry that serves all the people that flock here because employees don’t have places," Stancil said. "There was a trend for many years that each summer a few more folks would move here, work for the summer and end up becoming residents, myself included. That just doesn’t happen anymore because of the vacation rental market."

6 Most Charming River Towns in North Carolina

The natural beauty in North Carolina is already stunning enough, but when you add a riverside view to the equation, the landscape becomes surreal. The backroads of North Carolina are home to some of the most charming and enchanting towns in the US. Each of these towns makes for a great destination if you are looking to experience something off the beaten path.

1. Dillsboro

With a population of only 252 residents, there are lifelong North Carolinians who have never heard of this peaceful and quaint town. Located in western North Carolina along the Tuckasegee River, Dillsboro is best known for being the start of the famous Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. The train ride takes passengers through the countless mountains and hills in the area and finally ends in Bryson City Depot.

Dillsboro relies heavily on the steady flow of tourists using the railway to keep the local economy steady. Despite its small size, the town has many bars, restaurants, and other accommodations to keep visitors happy and satisfied.

2. Wilmington

The small city of Wilmington sits at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. Adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean as well, water activities are both common and plentiful. Renting kayaks, paddle boats, and jet skis are all viable options depending on the time of the year. The downtown core of the city has impeccably preserved its historical buildings and well-maintained the trolly service that still operates to this day.

Wilmington is also home to a branch campus of the University of North Carolina. Due to the large concentration of young people in the area, Wilmington's nightlife is surprisingly large considering the size of the town.

3. New Bern

Built along the estuary of the Neuse River, New Bern is a charming small town that appears sealed in a time capsule since the turn of the century. Steamboat rides up and down the rivers and coast often make stops in New Bern along their journey. Visitors can peruse a plethora of unique and versatile shops that sell an impressive catalog of specialty items.

New Bern was also the place where the legendary soft drink Pepsi-Cola was first conceived way back in 1889. The original Pepsi-Cola store still stands today and makes for an exciting visit. Their first location contains many relics and artifacts of the company, as well as the same vintage, feel that it had over 100 years ago.

4. Hot Springs

Way up in the Appalachian Mountains lies the small town of Hot Springs. Found along the picturesque French Broad River, Hot Springs embodies a typical mountain town in North Carolina.

There is an abundance of natural mineral springs in the surrounding area. Some of these are within resorts while others are in the wilderness. The French Broad River is a hotspot for rafting and other river activities which you can try with a guide or a group of friends if you are daring enough.

5. Bath

The sleepy town of Bath was the first area settled by European colonists in what is today North Carolina. The early colonial buildings are still on display and remain a popular attraction. The colonial village is often occupied by actors and tour guides adorned in era-appropriate clothing. Tricorne hats and powdered wigs replace bat caps and blue jeans.

First settled in the late 1600s, the town of Bath remained an important town until the end of British rule in America. Today the town is still small with only a population of a few hundred people. Bath sits at the end of Bath Creek which flows into the larger Pamlico River. The area just outside of the town limits is host to countless streams and creeks to explore.

6. Bryson City

Bryson City is a small but important town that lies on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Significantly larger than its counterpart in Dillsboro, Bryson City is much more than just a railway town.

Many whitewater rafting journeys begin in Bryson City. The fast current and rough water of the Tuckasegee River make it an ideal candidate for the sport. Rafting expeditions are great ways to explore and visit the other towns that lay downstream from Bryson City. If railways and river rapids are not to your taste there are plenty of guided excursions that lead to a number of amazing waterfalls in the nearby area.

Summary

The small river towns of North Carolina are something special; rustic, quaint, and well-preserved. Regardless of the time of year, rural North Carolina is a great place to visit. Taking this journey during the Holiday season might be the best time of the year to do so. Many of these towns host robust Christmas festivals that you will not be able to find in big cities.

A Day Away by Mike Steely

I’ll bet you didn’t know that the French Broad River, which joins the Holston River in Knoxville to become the Tennessee River, gets some of its water from a very strange source.

In the mountains of North Carolina, water heated far beneath the earth’s surface to 100 degrees bubbles up as hot springs and flows into Spring Creek and into the French Broad. The location of the warm water has long been a noted historic spot by Native Americans and early travelers and settlers.

Today the small Appalachian Trail community’s big attraction is the Hot Springs Resort and Spa which has 100 acres and hot tubs along the creek supplied by the warm natural mineral waters.

From Knoxville, the easiest way to get to Hot Springs, N.C., is by Interstate 40 to Newport and then Highway 321 to the city and east on Highway 25. You’ll leave extreme East Tennessee near Paint Rock and enter North Carolina. That will take you through the small town of Del Rio and on through the mountains to Hot Springs, about a two- or three-hour drive from Knoxville, skirting the French Broad at times. The route was a noted livestock trail during early settlement.

The Hot Springs Campground, with basic and full RV hookups, is located across from the Hot Springs Spa and Resort. The Spa offers several lodging choices from luxury suites with jetted tubs and a deluxe cabin, all with jetted hot tubs.

Nearby are other companies offering various lodging and recreation options.

The area has a history of resorts and hotels catering to tourists wanting to enjoy the springs’ reported therapeutic properties.

Several hiking trails around Hot Springs are popular and can lead to amazing overlooks. In the small town are various shops and the Hot Springs Visitor Center. It is located on Bridge Street and is open 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily and has information about the Appalachian Trail and exhibits about the interesting town history.

You can find much more information on the internet at HotSpringsNC.org or call (828) 622-9932.

Returning you could follow Highway 25 to Asheville and come back by Interstate 40 or follow Highway 209 south to eventually reach the interstate at Fines Creek.

HOT SPRINGS - It's not often that Hot Springs gets mainstream recognition, but the town is getting some publicity after a travel outlet listed the town on a top 10 list.

Travel and Leisure named the town as one of the "10 best small towns on the East Coast."

The travel publication even namedropped two local businesses, Broadwing Farm Cabins and Iron Horse Station, a popular downtown restaurant.

"As its name suggests, this small town is all about the area's natural hot springs. Book a cabin at Broadwing Farm Cabins and spend your day oscillating between soaking in the mineral water and exploring the organic farmland. When you've had enough soaking, lace up your hiking boots and hit part of the Appalachian Trail or walk around Hot Springs' tiny downtown area and grab a beer at the Iron Horse Station," the outlet said in the article.

Also making the list were:

According to the article, both accessibility during a short stay and the potential for long-term living were factored in forming the list.

Hot Springs Mayor Abby Norton said she was pleased that the town was acknowledged by Travel and Leisure.

"Hot Springs is a wonderful place to visit, with multiple activities," Norton said. "If you're not a hiker, you might enjoy a river trip, or a bicycle ride around town. Then, relax in a tub at the Hot Springs Resort and Spa. The fishing is great, both in the creek and the river."

Norton encouraged potential visitors to explore all the shops and amenities the town has to offer.

"Visitors may simply want to relax and unwind," she said. "Hot Springs is great for that, too. Try out all of our restaurants. Each has a specialty they are known for. Stop by the Welcome Center to view a small exhibit of Hot Springs history, and check out the shops, with a variety of goods for sale. There's a lot Hot Springs has to offer."

Per the 2020 census, Hot Springs' population is 520, with 227 households.

Travel and Leisure was formed as a magazine in 1971 and launched its website in 1998.
