Electricians are not all the same. Depending on the job type and electrical skills needed, you may need a residential, commercial, or industrial electrician. But, how do you know which type of electrician to call? Whilst it’s evident that a residential electrician takes care of your home’s electrical issues, the difference between industrial and commercial is not as obvious.
Industrial electrician vs commercial electrician
An industrial electrician tests and troubleshoots. They also maintain and repair electrical equipment in factories, warehouses, and commercial businesses. Alternatively, commercial electricians specialise in electrical repair and maintenance for commercial office spaces, retail stores, and warehouses.
When do I need an industrial electrician?
There are many reasons a Geelong, Bellarine Peninsula, or Surf Coast business would need an industrial electrician:
- Installing new electrical systems and industrial equipment
- Troubleshooting and fixing issues with electrical equipment
- Repairing and maintaining industrial electrical equipment
- Monitor and evaluate electrical systems
- Installing power upgrades and wiring
- Calibrating and maintaining circuitry
- Reading and interpreting wiring diagrams
These types of electricians keep your vital machinery operating safely and efficiently. Generally, they work with electrical equipment, controls, and wiring. In addition, they can handle high voltage electrical systems often found in commercial electrical setups.
What do they do?
Industrial electricians carry out a broad range of tasks for a range of industries. They are essential for your business’ safety. They work on industrial electrical repairs to scheduled maintenance. Plus, they monitor and evaluate electrical systems. Finally, emergency electrical repairs are also part of their scope. Their experience and technical skills ensure their ability to fix pretty much anything electrical!
