What is a Commercial Electrician?

You may have asked yourself what the difference is between a residential and a commercial electrician.

Commercial electricians are specialists in repair, installation, and maintenance of electrical systems in commercial premises. These include offices, warehouses, factories, and shops.

Unlike a residential electrician, commercial electricians deal with more complex systems that require specialised knowledge and expertise. But, compared to an industrial electrician, they don’t specialise in machinery and heavy industry environments, such as manufacturing plants or mining environments.

The specialty of a commercial electrician is to ensure that larger scale electrical systems are installed and then inspected to ensure they comply with Australia’s industry standards. Commercial electricians are qualified to identify and remedy any potential issues in existing fit-outs.

By ensuring you engage a fully insured and licenced commercial electrician, with a high level of experience, means you can be confident in the knowledge that your business is protected from electrical hazards and compliance risks.

Make sure you ask to see your electrician’s licence to check it is up to date and valid for the job. Licences are issued for 1, 3 or 5 years in NSW, and show the type of work the holder is licenced to undertake.

If you’re looking to install or update your current system, or experience a power outage, faulty wiring, or malfunctioning equipment, Faraday’s team of fully licenced and insured commercial electricians will be able to diagnose and resolve issues efficiently, and safely.

With years of experience in commercial electrical systems, Faraday’s team can identify the cause of the problem and provide a solution, minimising downtime and preventing further damage and delays.

Our commercial electricians work closely with other contractors such as plumbers and air conditioning technicians. This ensures your electrical systems integrate seamlessly with other building components. Coordination is essential for the efficient operation of your business and the smooth running of your premises.
