Why Having a Commercial Electrician in Toronto for Your Business is so Important
There is a great deal of confusion between a commercial electrician in Toronto as opposed to a ‘residential’ electrician. After all, the commodity they’re dealing in – electricity – is the same; and how different could appliances in a residential dwelling as compared to a commercial setting. Turns out that the differences are more than minor.
Commercial electricians in Toronto are a lot more ‘specialized’, as befits the additional training they undergo, the greater competencies they must possess and the kind of equipment they must work on.
Electricity, as it will turn out, is not quite the homogenous commodity, as it is perceived to be.
Training – Training to become a skilled commercial electrician in Toronto is more comprehensive and requires a deeper knowledge of electrical requirements of commercial and industrial equipment and setups. Commercial electricians must be licensed and are often required to partake in apprenticeships.
Safety – Commercial electricians in Toronto, working in office spaces, retail environments and other locations with a larger body of people, are accustomed to a different degree of safety protocol that must be followed. They will be conversant of any health and safety code that is applicable, and will take into account other considerations in the execution of the electrical project.
Voltage and power – Most often the electrical supply in residential settings is 110 volts and single phase. However, in commercial settings, to support the many electrical features such as lighting, computer banks and myriad other electricity-consuming infrastructure, higher voltage and three-phase systems are used. Commercial electricians in Toronto are knowledgable
Type of work – Commercial electricians in Toronto are adept at reading and understanding building blueprints and wiring diagrams. They must suitably perform work on a much larger scale, including installing and replacing lengths of cable, effecting repairs on sensitive electrical equipment in close proximity to other devices, and be able to troubleshoot small electrical maladies in a vast stack of electric circuitry. Commercial electricians in Toronto must also be able to work in large teams which are undertaking wiring or other electrical projects on a larger scale.
Eligibility – Even for minor work, banks and insurance providers will often require commercial electricians in Toronto to work on your commercial equipment or building. The qualifications, certification and experience working on commercial projects are important considerations for many such entities.
