Have Electrical Questions? We Have Answers!

What is a commercial electrician?

A commercial electrician possesses the skills and knowledge to handle large scale electrical projects. Typically these projects include office buildings, restaurants, hospitals, and any a variety of other large buildings.

Will you carry the parts needed for the job?

The majority of the time we’ll have the parts needed to complete the job. In some special contracts we might need to special order particular parts. However, you can always count on us to come prepared to the job. We maintain open communication without you throughout the process to ensure you are fully informed on timelines for ordered products if necessary.

How do you differ from a residential electrician?

Residential electricians are designed to handle the needs of your home. Our company thinks in much larger terms. We take on a wide range of commercial projects and problems. We know how to address even the most complex commercial electrical concerns.

My lights have been flickering. Is that a problem?

Lights will flicker when the power supply suddenly changes. This would be common during a bad storm when overhead wires are suddenly overloaded. Your lights can also flicker when an unusually large power supply is required. If the problem is consistent, it’s best to contact an electrician and have them inspect your wiring.

I reset the breaker but the power still isn’t back on. What else should I do?

In order to fully reset a breaker you have push the tab all the way to the off position. While it sounds simple, but most people fail to fully turn off the breaker. Make sure that you have completely turned the breaker off and on, and then try the power again. If you still are without electricity, it’s best to call a licensed electrician.

What are power surges and are they dangerous?

Surges occur when a particular event causes an interference in the normal flow of electricity (fallen trees, lightening, wind storms, and similar incidents). At times, power surges can cause damages to particularly sensitive units, such as TV’s or computers. It’s best to invest in a good surge protection device, or have your whole unit surge protected.
