What do Commercial Electricians do?

Nearly every business today relies on electricity for daily operations. From basic lighting, heating, and cooling, to things like Wi-Fi and computerized systems, without reliable electricity, your business won’t get very far. 

Commercial electricians undergo additional training and education on how to plan and install a building’s electrical system, which requires many years of work. Once they complete the standard curriculum and get their license, commercial electricians are able to work on a variety of commercial and industrial venues. We are experts at electrical planning, installation, and maintenance, and can get you set up with a brand-new system or help you take care of your current one.

Difference Between Commercial and Residential Electricians

Compared to a residential electrician, a commercial electrician must be able to handle different materials, procedures, and load sizes. Electrical systems are often planned differently in a commercial building, with ease of access in mind. Whereas, the wiring in your home is tucked safely behind walls. 

There are many key differences between what a residential electrician and a commercial electrician can offer, so it’s critical to hire a licensed, specialized commercial electrician for your business. Pat Murphy Electric is here to be a valued partner for your company, with our lineup of electrical services, including 24-hour emergency repairs.


With similar backgrounds and training, the main difference between commercial and industrial electricians is the work environment. For most retail businesses, office buildings, restaurants, and similar venues, a commercial electrician is your best bet. On the other hand, you’ll likely want an industrial electrician to handle the complexities and high-voltage components of a manufacturing plant or production facility. 

No matter if you run a restaurant or a warehouse, you can count on Pat Murphy Electric. We have many industrial electrical contractors on our Knoxville team who are ready to serve you. Whether you need a brand-new electrical system for your tank farm, repairs to your office building system, thermal scanning and breaker testing, PLC installation, or something else, we’re here for you.
