Fire Prevention


It might not seem likely at first glance but one of the simplest ways commercial electricians can help your business save money is to avoid a costly fire is with an electrical inspection. When you think about all the lost business revenue resulting from something that could have been easily avoided it’s really not a surprise that most serious business owners periodically schedule a visit from a qualified commercial electrician. Regardless if you have insurance, no business needs the costly downtime resulting from shutting down because of an electrical fire.

Today’s commercial equipment is more demanding than ever before and something so basic like calculating the load on a circuit breaker panel and other small checkups can put to rest any concerns you have over the safety of your building’s wiring.

Besides an inspection, commercial electricians can install and replace more efficient smoke and carbon monoxide detectors into crucial spots, they can also install or repair newer exit signs and install emergency lighting that may be more relevant to your location since the original ones were installed.

Routine maintenance can also promote safety and efficiency. Having outdated equipment, incorrect wiring, and an aging electrical infrastructure that can become fire hazards and can also cost you money. Updating your system may seem like a costly upfront expense, but it’s likely to save you money and help to promote safety and security for your business.


Emergency Power Backup


Commercial electricians are specialists when it comes to providing standby generators for businesses. A power failure is a nightmare for companies and businesses because it causes downtime, resulting in a loss of business. Having a power backup is necessary, and emergency power backup equipment is a must-have for any kind of business. A restaurant, for example, could suffer great losses in a prolonged power outage if, for example, their refrigerators stopped working due to a power outage. Their food would be spoiled and unservable thus resulting in a loss of revenue. This is just one of many examples from a world ever dependant on electricity. You always want your business to remain active so that you can stay connected with your clients and customers without any interruption. Installing and repairing standby generators is not the same as portable generators. Standby generators require a great knowledge of the energy supply. Commercial electricians have expert knowledge in this field. They’re well-equipped with the appropriate tools to perform installations and repairs efficiently.


Energy Efficiency


Energy efficiency not only means the maximum output and minimal waste of power but in the Quebec climate, this also translates to a reduction of overall electrical consumption resulting in heat generation. With energy efficient wiring, components and lighting (including LED lighting), businesses not only use less power but minimize the counterproductive use of electricity needed to heat office environments. A commercial electrician can not only help your business save money and power. They can help optimize energy efficiency, which doesn’t only mean producing maximum power output and minimal power waste, but also minimizing your electric bill.
