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

What Skills Should an Industrial Electrician Have?

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

At Custom Electrical Services we look for these skills and only hire trustworthy, experienced electricians.

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.

Had these guys and gals help me update my electrical as well as run some power out to a shop. The whole process was super smooth, Kourtnie nailed the paperwork side of things (even got a permit and inspection that I had no idea we needed) and Cory was great to work with on the installation side of things. The price was the same from the original bid all the way to the final product, which is always nice. The work itself was exactly what we agreed upon. Really nothing but good things to say about my whole experience. Would totally recommend these guys to any of my friends!

We are so appreciative of the work that Morgan and his team did on behalf of Custom Electrical for our new home. Custom Electrical provided a thorough, exact, and honest/fair bid right from the start, and they stuck to it! We had a budget, and they respected it. They were always timely and very professional. Attention was paid to every detail, and they made sure things were just how we wanted them. They went above and beyond in so many ways, from being patient with our kids running around to coming back an extra time to make sure everything was just right. We will be recommending them to everyone we know. Thanks you guys!

5 stars and a forever customer! My family moved into an older home and we've had Custom Electric over several times to help get our home working a bit more how I would like it. I appreciate that I am always able to get someone to my home quickly- whether it's to install a light switch or rewire an entire room. Everyone who's been in my home has been professional, friendly, and consistent in their quality work. Maybe most of all, I am grateful for the honest communication and great customer service! After the last visit, I had some concerns that were cleared up right away with kindness and respect (especially for dealing with a not so electrical savvy me). I would send everyone I know and love who have electrical need to Custom Electric- they won't let you down!!

We had a baseboard heater stop working in our baby's room. Custom Electric came out and quickly repaired the problem. Scheduling was easy, the technicians and staff were all very professional and great to work with. When we need electrical work done in the future, we will definitely be working with them again.

These guys/gals are always very helpful. I got a tech out to the house same day I called to repair a GFI receptacle that kept tripping open. Cory (technician) troubleshoot the problem, corrected it and was gone in about 30 minutes. I have used them for other projects with no complaints. I use them without hesitation for any electrical issues.
