Just like your home in Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, FL, Cooper City, West Palm Beach, Boynton Beach, Wellington, and the surrounding areas, the commercial buildings that you see need to have trained commercial electricians to keep things up and running. Kasper Electrical has been providing our experienced commercial electricians for many years to area businesses to keep them running, expand their operations, and upgrade various equipment. The power that gets distributed throughout a house is much different than what is distributed throughout a commercial building, so having the right personnel on site is crucial. Contact us today to learn more about having a commercial electrician for your project.
For residential buildings, single-phase electricity comes from a single wire from the utility and provides 120/240v power for the home. This is fairly straightforward, and only a few household devices require 240v power, such as air conditioning units. Most other electrical needs are supplied from a 120v power supply. When you step up to commercial electrical supply, that’s where things can get more complicated.
Commercial buildings typically see 240/480v electricity that comes in three-phase form. This three-phase electricity provides greater power density than single-phase electricity, which is why it is utilized to transmit power over the large power lines that you see all over. It is necessary to understand this three-phase electricity and how to step it down inside the building to the point where you have the same 120v outlets that you have in your home.
Three-phase electricity is also much more consistent in the rate of supply. A single-phase electrical supply has peaks and valleys in the voltage, and these can cause issues in larger machines that need a smooth, consistent electricity supply. Smaller devices such as lights, televisions, and other everyday items don’t require such smooth power delivery.
Another aspect that you will find with commercial electricians, especially when they are working in commercial settings, is that they want to make accessing the electrical panels, wires, and more as easy as possible. This is because commercial buildings often undergo changes to the interior layout of the building. Commercial electricians need to have access to the various electrical panels and wiring runs in order to make these needed adjustments quickly. Tearing down walls is a major disruption and takes much longer to make the needed changes.
