A general definition for commercial electrical services is any design, installation, troubleshooting, or repair of electrical systems for commercial clients, such as shopping centers, restaurants, apartment buildings, schools, stadiums, and much more. Here are details about a few of these commercial electrical services.
1 – Repairing Damaged or Faulty Wiring
Even if the electrical system isn’t outdated, it could still have damaged or faulty wiring issues. Faulty wiring is one of the leading causes of building fires, so you need to address any wiring problems right away. Here are some of the causes of faulty wiring:
- Rodent infestation – mice, rats, chipmunks, etc.
- Poor quality wiring
- Incorrect installation
- DIY projects gone wrong
2 – Upgrades and Retrofitting
One of the more common commercial electrical projects is updating wiring, panels, switches, outlets, and other components for a commercial building. Any business that has been around for a while either outgrows the electrical system they had when they started, or it no longer meets the current local building codes. Additional features might need to be added to the commercial electrical system, such as a backup generator or a smart control panel.
3 – Electrical Load Analysis
An electrical load analysis can save a commercial business a considerable amount of money by doing the following:
- Find ways to balance your electric load to save energy during peak and low output
- Identify wasted energy through inefficient operations
- Allow building owners to make provisions for additional loads
- Reduce energy costs through intelligent management of power use
4 – Signs and Exterior Lighting
The arrival of LED lighting has created a demand for replacing both indoor and outdoor lighting with new bulbs and, in many cases, new light fixtures to take advantage of lower energy consumption and brighter lighting. This project requires a lift for indoors with high ceilings or a bucket truck with climbing gear and a safety harness to handle outdoor projects.
Installing sign lighting for new businesses or replacing the lighting or the signs for old businesses are also popular commercial electrical services. Signs occasionally need replacing due to storm damage or accidents as well.
