 What Are the Different Types of Electrical Work?

When it comes to projects or jobs that deal with power consumption and power issues, it can be a very overwhelming task, especially if you don’t have a firm understanding of what the different types are. If you are looking for an answer, here are a few basic categories.

The most common type of work done is wiring and the wiring that comes with it is called power. This type of electrical maintenance can range from simple and straightforward to complex and involved in the design or complex wiring in certain specific systems.

The majority of the work will involve lots of cables that come from the ground and carry power to your various appliances.

Wires also come in different forms. There is a metallic wire that can be used to carry power to various parts of a building. This form of work is called cable work. They come in all shapes and sizes.

Then there is the insulated and flexible wire. The former is made of plastic, while the latter has insulation that is used to keep out the elements and keep the voltage constant. When working on any type of wire, it is important to make sure that you check the wires before doing any work.

The other major types that come under this category is the installation of lighting, fans, and heating systems in residential projects. For some jobs, this can be the only form of work and these jobs include putting wiring on electrical panel upgrades and in the walls.

While these jobs can be more complicated than simple wiring, there are also various types of plumbing and heating systems that require wiring.

As you can see, there are many different types discussed up top and throughout this page. You should take the time to find the right company with the skilled local electricians, that can do the work for you so that you can know what you need and get the job done right and at a reasonable price.

When you start looking at what you need, you should first figure out what your requirements are for the different types of work that you have. You will also need to consider where you want to get it done. You may need to have it done right away or you may need to wait for a few days.

Once you have determined the different types of work that you want to be done, then you can go about finding a company that can do them. At Ajax Electrical, we pride ourselves on providing great customer service as well as competitive pricing.

We offer many services for Residential, Commercial, and Industrial businesses as well as Energy-Saving Solar Panel installations. Our Master Electrician Ivan has over 38 years of experience in the industry and is one of the best, friendliest, and knowledgeable contractors out there.

Why hire an Electrician?

There are a number of reasons why you may need to hire one. However, when choosing a contractor, one of the main questions to ask them is what does an electrician cost? They will have to explain to you what they do and why your home needs work done. Here are just a few of the answers to these questions.

Most contractors charge by the hour or by the day. These will cost a bit more than those who charge by the project. If you plan on doing a lot of maintenance at your house, you may not want to look for an hourly tradesman. However, if you are only doing a small amount of work, an hourly one may be cheaper for you to hire.

When choosing a licensed electrician, ask whether they offer emergency services. Many also offer a 24-hour hotline for emergencies that can prevent potential damage to your home in the middle of the night. An emergency technician will go out to your house and check on your panel and other components in your home in case they are damaged or if something breaks down in the power system.

A good contractor will be able to give you estimates on how much it will cost you to finish a project or a repair. This is a great way to avoid paying an outrageous amount for labor. Ask for estimates and make sure that they include labor. In most cases, this includes any materials that will be used, such as panel replacement, fuse boxes, and fuses and various wire gauges. 

Some tradesmen charge by the square foot. They will come into your home and determine the area that needs to be repaired. Then they will quote you a price based on the square footage of the room that needs the work done in. This is a great way to save money on repairs since it doesn’t require you to dig a hole and put in a new panel.

Some of them charge by the minute. This means they are available in the middle of the night and can repair your home quickly. If you don’t have the extra time, you will still be able to get the same results as if you hired an hourly one. However, the price can become quite expensive. If you want fast work, then you may want to go with the hourly option.

Before you hire any to charge you for their services, make sure that they are licensed and insured. In addition, ask whether they have the proper certification to perform your specific project. The company should have a license from your province to perform home repairs, a certificate of insurance that they keep up to date.

No matter why you choose one, it is important to find one that you can trust. You need to feel comfortable with the person who will be coming to your home and making sure that you get the best value for the money that you spend. A good one can give you the peace of mind that you need.

Depending on the scope and size of the job or project, you can ask for references from previous customers. A good reference can go a long way toward saving you money. Even if you don’t like a particular one, it never hurts to ask for his or her number so that you can call them to see how their service has been.

You can find an electrician at your local Home Depot, Lowes, or even in the yellow pages of your phone book. You may even be able to find someone who is willing to come to your home and help you with your power needs for an hourly rate or even less.

When you are looking for the best one to find in the area, you call our professionals. Our technicians have the experience and knowledge with every aspect of the industry for residential, commercial as well as industrial projects or repairs.

Service Upgrades

Electrical Service Upgrades, also known as a “Service Upgrade,” is the process of taking an older model or a newer model of electric service and modifying it to provide better performance. Some upgrades may be a mere change in the style of wiring or the layout of wiring; other upgrades may include wiring alterations or new wiring, and others may be wiring rearrangement to improve system efficiency. The major advantage of this is the added time efficiency the upgrade will allow. This efficiency will pay for the cost of the service upgrade in less time than it would if you were to have to replace the equipment yourself.

Energy-Efficient Lights

In today’s ever-changing world, lowering monthly power consumption costs has become more and more important than ever before. There are several categories of energy-efficiency lighting, including energy-conservation LED lights, fluorescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights, low-pressure sodium lamps, halogen lamps, and energy-efficient incandescent bulbs. Each type of lighting technology has a set of benefits and challenges that need to be addressed. With our team of licensed experts we take the stress of you having to figure out what works the best in your home and business. We’re here to help and put your mind at ease.

Security Lights

Safety lighting is an essential part of the overall security plan for the workplace. This type of illumination should include a bright, spotlight-type lamp that is placed close enough to the work area to create an illusion of space, but not so close as to create a false sense of security. This type of lighting can also be called “key-chain” lighting. This key-chain lighting can include two or more small lights mounted on a flexible chain.

Commercial Electrician

It is a well-known fact that there are many businesses that are still operating without proper surge protection. We have come across many of these businesses that didn’t know that they need to have their systems checked on a regular basis to ensure the safety of their employees as well as anyone else that frequents their business. Surge protection is an extremely important component to help protect all electrical equipment against surges and sudden changes in the power supply in a building. 

Industrial Electrician

Our Industrial electrician installs, maintains, tests, troubleshoots, and can repair various industrial and mechanical equipment and more related and electronic controls. Some of the other components include and may not be limited to electrical motors, power supplies, lights and fixtures, and some power running engines. These are mostly used by maintenance departments of large plants, factories, mining, shipping yards, and other commercial establishments.

“We had a huge power failure at my parents house. After seeing the rest of the houses around us with power, we called Ajax Electrical’s 24 hour service. They were able to come out and fix the panel issue that had blown. George was so amazing and informative. He told us that our panel was a fire hazard as it was not well built originally. Not only was he detailed and thorough, he finished sooner than predicted, he came in exactly as quoted.” – Susan B.

“My boyfriend and I bought an older home that needed some work all around. When we started the whole reno project, we had no idea how old the wiring system was in this home. We called Ajax Electrical for help. Costa and his team were amazing! They came in and changed out the old knob & tube wiring and set us up with the latest smart home technology! They worked with us and our budget and they got it done. ” – Terry U.

“I had been putting off getting my whole power system checked out as I was afraid of what it would cost and what the electrician would find wrong with my home. I decided to take the plunge and call Ajax Electrical. I can honestly say that it has been the best decision I have ever made. David and George came in and checked the complete system of my home and came under the price I thought it was going to cost me! They recommended exactly what needed immediate attention and what I can wait to fix at a later date as it wasn’t as serious as other parts. Simply amazing service!” – Josh D.
