How Many Electrical Contractors Does It Take To Change A Light Bulb?

Let There Be Light!

If you have a lighting project that needs an expert’s help then you will want to contact an electrical contractor. These companies provide fully qualified, licensed and trained professionals to help with all your electrical needs. Contractors work on all kinds of projects from large commercial contracts to small residential home improvement projects. You may want new cost-effective lighting for your kitchen or you may have a business that requires an additional 50 working computers or your business needs a fire protection systems installed, however big or small your project you will require the service of an electrical contractor.

Identify Your Needs

A good electrical contractor service will help you to identify your project’s needs. They will then help you by safely installing the necessary electrical equipment. This may include lighting fixtures and fittings, panels and switchgear, switches, appliances and elaborate wiring systems. Electrical contractors often work closely with other local renovation and building firms. The tasks performed by the electrical contractors also involve providing support for the various operations of  construction projects. Power systems are needed to be installed to provide electricity to the equipment used in the construction process. There are also mobile tools and services that need to be provided with power by the systems installed by the contractor. Also, if any of these electrical equipments malfunctioned, the staff and workers of the electrical contractors are likely to be approached for any possible repairs.


What’s In A Name?

Electricians are classified into three main types – line, inside and integrated building systems specialists. These professionals are tasked with different jobs and undergo training specific to their line of work.

Inside contractors

Where some contractors deal with the ‘larger’ aspects of electricity distribution, inside contractors work in smaller environments. Their job is no less important, however, as they’re the people who set up the wiring in our homes and that of commercial and office settings.

Aside from working with buildings, they also design and maintain cabling and installation of required systems. Repair work is also undertaken by them as is troubleshooting, replacement of components like circuit breakers, telephone wiring and computer networking pre-wiring.

Integrated building systems

Last on the list is integrated building systems contractors. They’re the specialists who design and install wireless networks, telecommunications, security systems,fire suppression systems, energy-efficient lighting systems and other low voltage work. Their main job is to ensure that a building’s electrical system functions efficiently without consuming large amounts of power, and to ensure a buildings compliance to applicable standards and codes. 

The demand for IBS contractors is steadily rising as ‘going green’ has become a trend. Rising cost of power is driving not only the average homeowner but commercial customers too to cut down power usage and use greener electrical systems.

HVAC contractors

HVAC (which stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning) contractors are considered part of the IBS group of specialists.

These professionals work with HVAC systems in residential and commercial settings. They’re trained to identify problems and environments that could pose a hazard to systems such as the presence of water and moisture in close proximity. They test, install, repair and equipment complies with applicable standards.

It’s What You Know, Not Who You Know

It makes sense to use experienced and fully trained electricians when it comes to a project, whether that be in your home or business. Reputation is the best thing to consider when choosing an electrical contractor and it pays to do your homework. Quality of work and fair pricing are all-important but also try to find out about timeframes on larger projects and guarantees.
