When getting commercial electrical installations done in Nashville, TN, or anywhere for that matter, it’s important to get it right the first time, rather than get an unpleasant surprise, or shock, later. An improper installation not only wastes money to fix the mistake, but also costs a lot of time and can greatly hinder the overall business productivity. If work is rushed and you end up with subpar work, this isn’t a gamble you want to chance with your business and the very important electrical work. You want safe and reliable electricity to run your business.
If commercial electrical work is done in a sloppy manner, flickering lights and dead outlets may be the least of your worries. If an electrician were to cut corners, for example, and just patch into existing old outdated wiring or maybe even install subpar components such as repurposing scratched and rusted wiring, this could increase the chance for wires overheating and starting fires. When it comes to your business and the safety of employees and the public, there is no room for error when it comes to preventing electric hazards like defective parts, faulty insulation, loose wiring, and more. You want it done correctly by highly trained professional electricians that are well versed in doing the job properly right from the start.
Before going into more detail with you on our commercial electrical services and why you should choose Frog for all of your commercial electrician installation services, let’s talk more about commercial electrical needs in general and how they differ from residential electrical needs.
Commercial Electrical Needs Vs. Residential Electrical Needs
When it comes to commercial electrical needs, one major difference is the level of protection involved and where the wiring is located. In residential buildings, like your house, you want it to look as nice as possible. Therefore, it is kept out of eyesight. In a commercial business, however, electrical wiring is often kept within view in order to make it easily accessible to electricians. Also, because commercial wiring uses much higher voltage than residential wiring, it needs more protective insulation. Due to this, electrical wires for businesses use Thermoplastic High Heat-resistant Nylon-coated (THHN) insulation. This allows not only for a higher voltage, but also provides resistance to corrosive liquids and gasses that are more likely to be encountered in a business environment.
Another notable difference between residential electric needs and commercial ones are the differences in power level requirements. Homes use a single-phase power system, while commercial businesses use a three-phase power system. In homes, where single-phase power is used, a neutral wire is used along with two wires that are 120 volts. When it comes to commercial businesses, where three-phase power systems are used, there is typically a single 208 volt wire with two 120 volt wires. This type of system creates more efficiency for a higher electric exchange and longer-lasting commercial equipment.
Finally, the electrical codes pertaining to residential and commercial buildings are different. Commercial wiring must be made to be durable and robust, being able to withstand corrosion, heat, and other things that can damage wire quality. When it comes to residential wirings for homes, the insulation used isn’t as thick as what is used for commercial businesses, however, safety is still a critical aspect of residential wiring.
