HomeBlogWhat to Look for in a Commercial Electrician

Here at Buckingham Electric Inc., we want to help you take care of your business, and an important part of keeping your operation running is maintaining the electrical system. You rely on your electrical system to keep everything from your lights, air conditioning, and computers running, so problems with that system mean problems for every other area of your business. Naturally, you want to have a reliable electrician to turn to for when these emergencies arise, but for a business facility you’ll want to make sure that you choose a commercial electrician with experience working with larger properties. In this article, we will go over three essential things to look for when choosing a commercial electrician.

commercial electricians will most likely have to work with a team

  • Licensing and Insurance- The first thing you should ask about when choosing a commercial electrician is the candidate’s licensing and insurance. Having the right license guarantees that the electrician has the necessary training and experience to do the job you need and having the right insurance coverage gives you financial protection in the event that any damages or injuries occur during the course of the project.
  • Communication and Teamwork- Unlike residential electricians, who typically work alone, the larger scale of a commercial property means that commercial electricians will most likely have to work with a team in order to do the job. This means that their communication and teamwork skills are essential to their success, and something that you should definitely ask about during your interview.
  • Resourcefulness- The larger scale of commercial projects also means that problems are more likely to arise, and you need your electrician to be able to deal with them. While interviewing candidates, ask about unexpected problems that have come up in the past and how they handled them in order to get a sense of how well that candidate can adapt to novel situations.

We at Buckingham Electric Inc., hope that this information helps you find a qualified, reliable commercial electrician for your business. If you don’t know where to start, you can always turn to our team to have all your needs taken care of.
