Commercial Disconnect Switch Installation

One of the best ways to ensure uninterrupted electrical service to your business and to protect your assets is to install a disconnect switch, and current building codes require you to have one. This device will monitor the power supply to your equipment and power structure, shutting off all electricity in the event of an interruption or power surge.  This switch protects your assets by preventing short circuits and power surges which can harm important equipment and even cause safety hazards. A disconnect switch is an inexpensive solution to all of these issues.

Ontime Electric can help you select the best switch for your business’s needs, and we will install it for you. We offer a variety of models, each with different uses and benefits. Our professionals will offer you guidance as to the best, most cost-effective option to protect your information, equipment, employees, and patrons. With our help, you will find the best option for your needs.

Commercial Splitter Box Installation

Splitter boxes enable the connection of several sensors, transmit signals, and supply voltages through a multi-wire cable, reducing the complexity of your wiring and limiting installation costs. This service is only beneficial if you install a high-end splitter that meets the requirements of your company. Protection against moisture and resistance to aggressive liquids, corrosion, and shocks are important for reliable signal transmission as well.

Ontime Electric’s licensed, professional electricians provide Splitter Box installation throughout Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. Our experts offer your company guidance as to the best possible option for your electrical wiring and suggest upgrades or improvements where necessary.

Commercial Transformer Installation

A transformer is an electrical device that increases or decreases the voltage and current being dispersed through your wiring so that your electrical devices can operate at their appropriate voltages. This guarantees safety, efficiency, and energy savings. There are a variety of different transformers for use in commercial establishments, and every model offers different benefits, so depending on the kind of business you are running, you may require a different transformer. A transformer not optimized for your business and location can cost you extra money and prevent you from getting the most out of your electrical work.

At Ontime Electric we work with our customers to provide them with quality information that will help their businesses save on electricity, optimize the performance of their appliances and electronics, and offer substantial energy savings that may allow them to take advantage of various government rebates and tax incentives.

Lighting installation

A retrofit of your lighting systems may be an excellent means to save your company on electrical costs. We provide you with the opportunity to completely re-do your lighting, replacing it with cost-effective, energy-efficient lighting solutions instead of energy-wasting bulbs. We do this by taking advantage of LED lights, energy saving, cutting-edge occupancy control systems, green products, and so on. All of these products and other advantages allow us to offer your company a program that will lower your overall expenses and further save you money by making you eligible for various government rebate programs.

Commercial Backup Generator Installation

Until we experience a power outage, we are unaware of how much we depend on electricity. Living in a country such as Canada, where snow, rain, freezing temperatures, and unforeseen power outages are common, having a backup generator for your company may be very beneficial. A backup generator will allow your workday to carry on uninterrupted in the event of an outage and will protect your valuable assets by keeping your systems up and running. Many companies are even required by government policy to maintain a backup generator.

Install a sense of security in the face of unexpected power failures, surges, or issues; Ontime Electric offers and installs a variety of backup generator models so that you can have the added security of constant power in your home or business.

It is incredibly important that your commercial space receives its electrical inspections regularly, and often. Our company offers these inspections in our safety package; we check your smoke detectors, heating, and AC systems, security systems, grounding systems, light bulb voltages, switch and wall outlets, tamper-resistant outlets, exhaust fans, and more.

What is the difference between commercial and residential electrical?

Commercial and residential electrical systems are designed to meet different power demands. Commercial buildings typically have larger square footage and more occupants than residential buildings, so they require more power to run air conditioning, lighting, and other equipment. In addition, commercial buildings often have more complex electrical systems, with multiple wiring circuits and larger distribution panels. As a result, commercial electricians need to have a higher level of training and experience than their residential counterparts. 

Residential electricians, on the other hand, primarily install and repair electrical systems in single-family homes. While these systems are not as complex as those found in commercial buildings, they still need to be able to safely handle a large amount of power required to run appliances, lights, and other devices. As a result, both commercial and residential electricians play an important role in keeping our buildings safe and running smoothly.

What should you do if you have a problem with your Commercial Electrics?

If you encounter a problem with your commercial electrician, the first thing you should do is contact the electrician. If the electrician is unavailable or does not respond in a timely manner, you should then contact the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA). The ESA is responsible for public safety in Ontario and will investigate any concerns that are brought to their attention.

However, if you feel that your safety is at risk, you should always call 911. In summary, if you have a problem with your commercial electrician, you should contact the electrician or the ESA. If you feel that your safety is at risk, you should always call 911.

How do you maintain Commercial Electrics?

Commercial electricians are responsible for installing and repairing electrical systems in businesses and other commercial buildings. In order to perform their job properly, commercial electricians must have a thorough understanding of electrical theory and be familiar with the code requirements for electrical work.

Commercial electricians typically complete an apprenticeship program before becoming licensed to work independently. During their apprenticeship, they receive on-the-job training from experienced electricians while also taking classroom courses in electrical theory, blueprint reading, and other related subjects. After completing their apprenticeship, commercial electricians must pass an examination in order to obtain a journeyman’s license. Licensed journeyman electricians are then able to work independently, although they may still choose to complete additional continuing education courses in order to stay up-to-date on the latest code requirements and advances in electrical technology.

My business is a 24-hour operation, how can I test my electrics without any impact?

To ensure that your business’s electrics are running as they should be, it is important to have a regular testing and maintenance schedule in place. However, if your business is a 24-hour operation, this can present a challenge. The good news is that there are ways to test your electrics without causing any disruption to your business.

One option is to use thermal imaging technology. This allows you to identify any hot spots on electrical components, which can indicate a potential issue. Another option is to use a remote monitoring system. This allows you to track the performance of your electrics in real time, so you can identify any problems early on. By taking these steps, you can be confident that your business’s electrics are reliable and safe.

Is electrical installation testing a legal requirement in commercial properties?

It is recommended that electrical installation condition reports be carried out at least every 5 years for commercial properties. This can either be a 100% inspection every 5 years or a 20% inspection every year.

Any business owner who is responsible for the commercial property should be aware of the legal requirements for electrical installation testing. In most jurisdictions, it is a requirement that all commercial properties undergo periodic testing to ensure that the electrical installation is safe and meets current standards. While the frequency of testing may vary depending on the age and type of property, it is generally recommended that testing be carried out at least once every five years. Failure to comply with this legal requirement can result in significant penalties, so it is important to be aware of the requirements in your area. If you are unsure whether electrical installation testing is a legal requirement in your jurisdiction, you should contact a qualified electrician or other professional for advice.
