What commercial electrical services do you provide?
We are a certified electrician Burlington commercial enterprises can depend on for all their electrical needs. Alpha Electric provides an emergency and a scheduled electrical repair service, ensuring businesses can get urgent work dealt with in a timely manner as well as routine electrical work completed when convenient to them.
Our repairs cover everything from a black-out through to a faulty circuit, exposed wiring, faulty fuses, or an electrical installation that’s short-circuiting. If you suspect you’ve got an electrical fault on your hands, give us a call and we’ll be happy to fix it for you.
Although we can install a wide range of appliances and electrical items, we most frequently get asked to install fresh lighting. Many companies are realizing the advantages of installing LED lighting. We specialize in LED retro-fits as well as rewiring older properties.
As electricity usage increases, many older premises simply don’t have the capacity to accommodate a wide range of appliances, gadgets, and technology that a contemporary business requires to run efficiently. We can upgrade panel boards, add sockets, and improve wiring to accommodate larger electrical loads safely.
Inspection and Testing:
Turn to us for all your electrical appliances’ compliance testing and inspection.
Is retrofitted LED lighting worth the money?
LED lighting is growing in popularity due to its energy-efficient nature. Not only does LED lighting use about 75% less power than conventional lighting, but it also lasts up to 25 times longer than incandescent lighting. Over the longer term, this adds up to some pretty serious energy savings.
Energy efficiency and longevity aren’t the only benefits that LED lighting can bring to your premises. LED lighting is a low-maintenance option, helping to keep your building premises’ management costs as low as possible. The long-lasting nature of LED lighting minimizes the risk of unwanted downtime whilst bulbs are replaced or fixtures maintained, helping to keep your operation running.
LED lighting can also be safer than incandescent lighting. LED lighting is markedly brighter than conventional lighting, ensuring better illumination of the workplace. This reduces the risk of trips and slips associated with poor visibility.
We can create an LED lighting design that’s exactly right for the needs of your business. Our team can install LED lighting that’s suitable for retail premises, salons, showrooms, offices, and more.
Although retrofitting LED lighting does cost money, it’s also an investment that will add value to your property and will significantly reduce your ongoing energy costs.
When do I need a wiring inspection and what does it cover?
We recommend that a wiring inspection is carried out before you purchase a property, especially if the existing owner can’t provide evidence of a recent inspection.
If you’re planning to take on a tenancy, the landlord should be able to provide evidence of a recent inspection. If they can’t, we recommend requesting that one is completed before signing the tenancy agreement.
For businesses already owning a property that hasn’t had a wiring inspection in the last five years, we recommend that one is carried out.
A member of our team, at Alpha Electric, will come out to complete the wiring inspection. The results of our inspection will be laid out in a standard report, also known as the EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report).
As part of the inspection, the electrician will look at and test all the circuits on your property. They will also check the panel board, fuses, wiring, and all other parts of the electrical system in your property, looking for signs of damage, danger, deterioration, or defects.
The EICR will include details of work that needs to be completed urgently (to make the wiring safe) as well as details of any recommended upgrade or replacement work that’s needed going forwards.
How do I know when I need a panel upgrade?
The number of devices and gadgets that an average commercial workplace needs to run has increased significantly over the past twenty years or so. This means that, in some cases, the panel board that was installed a couple of decades or so ago just isn’t suitable for the needs of the 21st century.
If you notice any of the following signs, it’s worth calling us, at Alpha Electric, to come and take a look. We can advise if panel upgrade is a solution, or if some alternative work is needed.
- Insufficient room on the panel board for any more switches
- The breaker switches tripping repeatedly
- Smells of burning, melted wires or a blackened area
- An older panel board
- If you still have fuses rather than the trip switches
In addition, if you’re planning an extension to your business or are getting ready to install some fresh cabling for communication equipment, check with us to see if this means a panel upgrade is needed.
A timely panel upgrade reduces the risk of equipment shorting out, protecting your fixtures from damage and reducing the risk of a total power failure. This prevents disruption and loss of production or service.
