Commercial and residential electrical wiring are very different in terms of the energy needs, load demands, and the whole equipment setup.

Commercial electrical wiring usually uses a three-phase design. In three phase electrical systems, there are:

  • two smaller legs running 120 Volts each
  • and a wider leg running 208 Volts.

This kind of setup allows each wire less workload, while creating a higher output as they work together. As a result, it leads to greater efficiency and longer lasting equipment. Higher voltage requirements are due to the increased power needs in most of commercial buildings and environment.

What is more, commercial wiring often has a higher level of insulation (called a TTHT - Thermoplastic, high-heat resistant, nylon coated). This feature helps to protect the electrical wiring from any corrosive gases and liquids.

Business owners have to be very careful and keep their eye on everything that needs to be regularly maintenanced and checked up. It is easy to get bogged down with some tiny thing of issue when we should keep working on the big picture.
