Hiring a Commercial Electrician
Hiring a Commercial Electrician to work on a commercial building is very important. Most commercial buildings have complex electrical systems involving many different components such as:
- multiple panels
- power feeds for specialized equipment
- multiple heating/HVAC systems
- inter-connected alarm and sprinkler systems
- data and telecom wiring
- signage lighting
- emergency and exit lighting systems
- a wide variety of lighting in individual tenant spaces and common areas
- automation systems
An experienced commercial electrician will understand how all these systems work together and will advise you on the feasibility of your planned electrical work. In addition, hiring a licensed electrician ensures that your electrical work will be completed to code under a valid electrical permit. This is important as a protection from illegal wiring and shoddy workmanship. Lastly, for your own protection, it’s good practice to confirm your electrical contractor has valid WorksSafe BC coverage and liability insurance in place before he or she commences work.
Consulting With a Commercial Electrician
It’s also good practice to meet the electrical contractor at your commercial space to review your power and lighting needs. In addition, an electrician will need to assess your building’s electrical system. This is necessary in order to advise you on the feasibility of the planned electrical work in your commercial space. If you require additional circuits to power new equipment, an electrician will determine if your electrical service has enough power to support your plans.
Energy Savings in Commercial Buildings
BC Hydro’s research tells us that lighting typically represents the largest power demand for most businesses. However, thanks to LED technology, LED lighting also provides the most effective way to save up to 80% on lighting costs! In addition, this figure can be further improved by installing Smart Lighting components. For instance, programmable “Smart” controls are designed to automatically adjust lighting to meet your company’s needs while saving you electricity. Balancing effective illumination with improved energy efficiency, a commercial electrician will be able to advise you on effective solutions for your business.
