Hiring a Commercial Electrician to Ensure Electrical Safety

Proper electrical safety is an essential for your employees, building and the overall financial security of your business. Hiring a skilled electrician for your commercial property is one of the smartest investments you can make. A qualified electrician has the knowledge, skill and correct training to perform even the toughest electrical jobs.

Preventing Fires

Typically, building fires occur when the electrical systems are outdated or faulty. The wiring tends to become overloaded, then overheats which can increase the risk of electrical accidents.  With high-quality wiring installed by a licensed and insured electrician, you can rest easy knowing these problems will be avoided. Because commercial electrical systems handle large volumes of electricity and have special requirements, commercial electricians will have the proper wiring and materials needed for the building.

Abiding by Codes

When hiring an electrician, it should be noted that licensed and insured commercial electricians have to follow and abide by the National Electrical Code (NEC). The NEC establishes the groundwork for electrical safety in commercial, residential and industrial buildings. At C&J Electrical Services, we understand the importance of the codes and will work hard to guarantee that your commercial building’s electrical system is compliant with the NEC.

Choosing The Right Electrician: Qualities to Look for

When choosing an electrician, there are two key components to look for:

Professionally Trained and Certified: It’s no secret that working with electricity can be very dangerous. Most electrical jobs are complex and require training and certification–hiring an electrician that’s skillfully trained and certified can ensure the safety of yourself, your employees and your building.
Licensed and Insured: Any electrician you let into your building should have the appropriate license and insurance needed to perform the job. If they aren’t, this makes your liable for any injuries, harm or damages that may occur on your property while your electrician is working.

Your business could be negatively impacted by the expensive repairs and lost revenue due to an electrical issue. Hiring a licensed and insured electrician from C&J Electrical Services can ensure your company’s electrical structure is running as smooth as possible. Not only is our team skillfully trained and licensed to perform various commercial electrical jobs– but also equipped with the necessary products and tools
