What to Look for When Hiring a Commercial Electrician

Finding a certified commercial electrician can be stressful and downright daunting if you don't have much knowledge about electrical work. However, hiring the first electrician you see on a Google search isn't always the best idea.

Providing commercial electrical services takes a different level of experience than residential projects. Additionally, this equipment calls for regular maintenance and repairs to ensure it is performing properly and efficiently. Seek out a commercial electrician who has the skills and expertise to install, maintain, repair, upgrade, and design electrical equipment in commercial spaces.

Qualities to Look for in a Commercial Electrician

Assess Culture & Attitude

A company's culture impacts employee satisfaction, retention, and client focus. At Unity Power Services, respect, safety, and professionalism are the guiding principles in working with our clients as well as our internal team members. While we typically manage electrical issues, our commitment to our core values empowers our team to discover effective solutions to obstacles that are somewhat outside of the project scope. When choosing your electrical contractor, make sure they possess a relationship-focused, solution-driven, positive attitude while not compromising the safety of people or property.


Good things (and services) often come at a price. While there are many experienced, cost-friendly electricians out there, don't automatically choose the least expensive offer for the scope of services. Instead, look for a certified commercial electrician worth the cost of services, a company that is easy to work with, goes above and beyond to meet your project needs, and always delivers on budget commitments. Be wary of hiring a contractor that doesn't provide up-front costs; always ask for a written estimate of service charges.

Post-Project Support

Electrical work comes with many risks; you don't want your contractor to complete the job and never be heard from again - especially if there is an issue with the installation or service. Using a certified commercial electrician ensures that any installation or repair work is up to code and ready for inspection but also provides post-project support should you have questions or concerns. Our master electricians offer rapid response within 24 hours and can be on-site to handle any electrical issues, proving our dedication and commitment to our craft.

Effective Communication

Regardless of the product or service you're seeking, the ability to communicate with your customer effectively is essential. Any professional commercial electrician will closely examine your property before conveying the problem or providing design build plans. At Unity Power Services, we listen to your needs to create a fast and efficient solution that comes in on time and on budget. Throughout the pandemic, we have implemented new communication processes with our clients to ensure the safety of everyone involved in a project.

License & Certification

Commercial electricians must have proper licensing and certification for performing electrical work on commercial projects. A professional will provide you with a copy of their credentials if asked. Our experienced team is fully certified with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration), and First-Aid accredited, putting safety at the forefront of all our projects to give our clients peace of mind. Additionally, we conduct weekly toolbox talks to cover safety procedures to keep everyone out of harm's way.

Client Reviews

If you're dealing with one or multiple electrical issues, you need a reliable and knowledgeable electrician you can trust and with a proven track record of high-quality work and services. Unity Power Services understands the need to work safely and quickly, and our clients rely on our expertise.
