How do licensed electrical contractor companies work?
How do their employed company electricians work within their system? Most people do not really know, and do not take the time to know, how electrical contractor companies and electricians work. Except for those people in the construction or building industries, very few others even realize that practically all aspects of their day to day lives are affected by the work done by licensed electrical contractor companies and their electricians. In fact, modern day societies owe so much to the work of electrical contractor companies and their electricians that pretty much everything would come to a standstill if they stop working.
In the most general sense, the work of licensed electrical contractor companies and their electricians involves designing, installing, maintaining and repairing all kinds of residential, commercial and industrial electrical systems and electrical projects. Licensed electrical contractor companies also provide all the electrical parts & supplies required in every project they handle.
Their customers and beneficiaries therefore encompass all sectors and levels of society. In effect, all electrical usage, whether private or public, in the home, schools, hospitals, offices, commercial areas, recreational areas and even government areas are dependent on the work done by electrical contractor companies and their electricians.
Maintenance and repair work done by licensed electrical contractor companies and their electricians covers upgrading and electrical repairs of electrical boxes, control panels, electric motors, electrical panels, concealed wiring and underground wiring; cable fault locating; and installation, maintenance and repair of street lights, parking lot lighting, landscape lighting, commercial lights and security lighting. Electrical contractor companies also have fully equipped bucket trucks that respond quickly to electrical emergencies.
In hurricane prone areas, licensed electrical contractor companies and their electricians set up and maintain lightning protection systems and do generator installation, ensuring surge protection from surge protectors.
Throughout the United States, electrical contractor companies and their electricians do electrical code consulting to ensure that clients avoid government electrical code violation. This is needed in the construction of new buildings as well as in the maintenance of old infrastructure. The 40-Year Building Inspection Program of Miami-Dade County in Florida, for example, obliges all buildings aged 40 years and above to go through safety inspections every ten years. This includes electric inspection.
The range of functions done by licensed electrical contractor companies in the United States determines their classification.
The work of line electrical contractors or outside electrical contractors spans the full transmission of power starting from the power plants down the line to power substations, power facilities and power users. High voltage power plant equipment, electric generation and hydroelectric energy
systems are, therefore, within the realm of line electrical contractors and their electricians.
The work of inside electrical contractors and their electricians spans all electrical needs within the residential, commercial or industrial property lines of clients, exactly where the work of line electrical contractors or outside electrical contractors ends. Home energy audits, heat
tracing, electric meters, circuit breakers, junction boxes, fuse boxes and fuses, switches, electric wires, indoor lighting, outdoor lighting, recessed lighting, outdoor fans, patio fans, ceiling fans and ceiling fan repair and water heaters are within the realm of inside electrical contractors and their electricians.
The work of voice/data/video (VDV) electrical contractors or integrated building systems (IBS) electrical contractors spans low voltage auxiliary power generators; power monitoring; emergency electrical & lighting systems; energy efficient solar energy and wind energy; security
systems; telecommunications systems including closed circuit television and wireless networks; climate control systems including fire detectors, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and exhaust fans; and fiber optics.
The rest of us can only rely on the good work done by licensed electrical contractor companies and their electricians.
