How are commercial electrical services different from residential and industrial?
Commercial electrical services require different materials and procedures than residential or industrial systems.
Generally speaking, commercial electricians work with a three-phase electrical system, which include two smaller legs running 120 Volts individually, with one 1 wider leg running 208 Volts.
This system gives each wire a lighter workload, while creating a higher output when they work together.
This makes the commerical electrical system work more efficiently, with less wear and tear on equipment. Office environments, which are considered commercial, require higher loads of electricity on a regular basis.
Commercial wiring usually features thicker insulation known as TTHT (Thermoplastic, high-heat resistant, nylon coated).
This special insulation protects it from corrosion.
Special outlets are often used for higher voltage equipment, and a an electrician who specializes in commercial electrical services has been trained in installing this equipment with safety and code regulations in mind.
