Industrial Electrician FAQ in Utah

Industrial electricians are integral in keeping an industrial facility running smoothly. Industrial electrical systems can be complex and even dangerous, and trusting an experienced professional is the best way to ensure that maintenance and repairs are done correctly. If you're searching for an industrial electrician, check out our industrial electrician FAQ in Utah to learn more about what an industrial electrician does and when their services are required.

What is an Industrial Electrician?

Industrial electricians are responsible for the electrical systems within an industrial setting such as a manufacturing or processing plant. (LINK to What Do Industrial Electricians Do cluster topic) They work to keep electrical equipment (and, as a result, the facility itself) safe and functional. Responsibilities include:

  • Installation and maintenance of manufacturing equipment, wiring, and large–scale machinery
  • Inspection of wiring and electrical components to certify they are up to date and code
  • Repairs for electrical machinery
  • Testing and troubleshooting electrical components
  • Design of instrumentation and controls systems
  • Understanding of electrical design for factories and large–scale commercial construction

To guarantee the safety and success of an industrial electric job, any professional industrial electrician you hire should possess skills such as:

  • Critical thinking skills
  • Safety skills
  • Electrical troubleshooting knowledge
  • Physical endurance and strength
  • Communication and time management skills

What are the Differences Between Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Electricians?

Different electricians specialize in unique electrical systems and work environments, so it’s essential to know which electrician to hire for your facility’s needs. Here is a breakdown of the three different types of electricians, all of which can be found at Custom Electrical Services .

Residential Electrician

Residential electricians work primarily in homes. When homeowners encounter an issue with their home’s electrical system, they can call a residential electrician to troubleshoot the problem.

Commercial Electrician

A commercial electrician typically works in commercial buildings, such as office buildings or retail stores. Commercial wiring is more complicated than residential wiring, so commercial electricians must verify that the building’s wiring and electrical components are safe and functional.

Industrial Electrician

An industrial electrician works in industrial facilities that use complex wiring and sensitive machinery. They possess a higher skill set to maintain a scope of electrical systems that range from micro–currents to high voltage.

How Do I Know I Need an Industrial Electrician?

Some business owners may assume they only need industrial electricians during construction, remodeling, or electrical emergencies. We hope this industrial electrician FAQ in Utah demonstrates that this is far from the truth. Even the slightest warning signs may indicate a more complicated electrical problem. (LINK to When to Hire an Industrial Electrician cluster topic) A few common electrical problems you may encounter that require an industrial electrician include:

  • Flickering lights
  • Electric shocks
  • Blown breakers or fuses
  • Unusual sounds or smells
  • Damaged wiring
  • Smoke, discoloration, and scorching

Ignoring a sign of an underlying electrical issue or troubleshooting the problem yourself isn't worth risking your and your employees' safety. Hiring a licensed industrial electrician can save time, money, and effort.

Questions to Ask Before Hiring an Industrial Electrician

Poorly repaired machinery or electrical systems can have devastating consequences in an industrial setting. Hiring a qualified electrician is just as much about safety as quality work. Keep these industrial electrician FAQs in mind to help ensure that you've hired the best electrician with the right experience for the job.

An industrial electrical project fit for Custom Electrical's expertise.

Any electrician you hire to work on your industrial electric system should be licensed in your state.

Industrial electric projects can be complex and require a certain level of training. Don’t be afraid to inquire if your electrician is experienced enough to provide you with high–quality work.

Even if they do not have an exact idea of the final cost, your electricians should be able to give you a rough cost estimate.

Though small jobs may not require a permit, large–scale industrial electrical projects typically require a permit and an inspection before work can begin.

Safety inspections help to check that your industrial facility is safe and efficient. Not every project includes an inspection, but you can ask your electrician if an inspection will be performed or if it will come at an extra charge.

At Custom Electrical Services , we take service and customer care seriously. When you hire an electrician through Custom Electrical Services , you can feel confident that you are working with a licensed, experienced electrician.

We were contacted by a very professional lady from Custom Electrical Service to perform a repair to our solar panels. They had been contacted by SunPower that our unit was not producing correctly. We were told told the service was under warranty and would be completed in the next 2 - 3 weeks. An appointment was scheduled and the service people came when they said they would come! The gentlemen (and Ii use the term correctly) were very polite and respectful of our property. They had to replace things (which means there were old parts to dispose of). There was no trace of any debris when they left. Our panels are now working perfectly again!

I have used Custom Electric for several needed repairs. Some of our outlets and switches were not up to code and we needed them replaced. There was a problem with some exterior outlets as well. They were replaced and protected with the appropriate weather covers. All the work we have had Custom Electric perform has been very professional and completed without any further issues. Everyone I have dealt with has been very knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. I would recommend them to anyone needing electrical work. I think their pricing has been very fair as well. I know who I will call or refer when there is a need for electrical work.

Custom Electrical was awesome. We had some issues with our solar panels and turns out the service panel had some issues too. They put in a warranty work order with the manufacturer and took care of the issue right away. I was very impressed with the responsiveness of the company and further impressed by the fact that they were not the original panel installation company, but treated me like a long time customer. This company will be doing all my future electrical work and will be my go to company when asked for a reference by my friends and family. Thank you Custom Electrical!
