What to Look for in a Commercial Electrician

Choosing an electrician can be tricky simply because there are so many options to choose from! However, when it comes to finding a commercial electrician, you need to be a little more discerning in your choices, especially since many residential electricians will attempt to finish commercial work, even when they aren’t necessarily qualified to do so. If you are on the hunt for a commercial electrician, our team here at Lake Electric Co. Inc. has a few things you should watch out for when it comes to selecting a commercial electrician.

First, make sure your commercial electrician actually does commercial work rather than doing 95% residential work and just dabbling in commercial work. Commercial work is significantly more complex and complicated than most residential work and needs unique expertise and training.

Second, a commercial electrician needs to have the experience you are looking for. Experience can make all the difference in the world between a job well done and one that causes you constant problems and repairs.

Third, your commercial electrician needs to come with the right insurance and liability protection. Electrical work can be dangerous, and without their own insurance for their employees, you can end up on the hook if there is some kind of accident or issue.

Finally, find a commercial electrician who is willing to educate their employees on a continual basis. Because electrical work is always being upgraded and often needs to be integrated into older properties, make sure your commercial electrician knows the latest and greatest technology and tools.
