Veteran Owned Business - Contact Our Master Electricians Today (717) 538-9149
A business cannot operate without electricity, especially one that relies on computers for most of its duties. Suppose you have upgrade or repair work done to an established business. In that case, it is essential to know: if the electricity will be off for the entire building and, for how long, if it will be safe to have employees and possible clients inside of the building, or if it would be better to do the work during off-peak hours. In some cases, closing down for a day or part of a day might be faster and safer than working around electrical needs. In other cases, closing down might be completely unavoidable. In the long run, it is better to shut down to have repairs made as safely and as efficiently as possible rather than trying to avoid the issues altogether. Again, regulations and standards might prevent some repairs from being made with staff in the building.
A commercial project differs from a residential one on many accounts. First, different codes must be adhered to in a professional building. Most businesses have additional electrical needs than the average household, so the wiring must be different. An industry with a lot of computers and other business-related electronics will need wiring that can handle the extreme amount of power flowing through them and have safeguards in place to protect the people and the machines from sudden power surges, power failures, and other issues.
Building codes are confusing and may change without the general public knowing. A licensed contractor will be aware of the changes and prepared to make repairs, upgrades, or installations that reflect these changes. Remember: you will not be able to open your doors for business until you have met all local codes. Don’t be forced to have your l local electricians come back regularly when you can; instead, get things right the first time with the right contractor.
Before starting a project, ask the contractor about their credentials and expertise in the area. An established, long-term veteran-owned company that will be around long after the project is finished and will still be available for electrical repairs if something should happen. Commercial insurance carriers might require that all repairs, even the smaller ones, be handled by only accredited professionals, especially electrician wiring.
Of course, other questions might come to mind between the initial phone call and the first site visit. You should always feel free to write them down and ask since a qualified contractor welcomes all questions without getting frustrated or angry.
