In short, Electricians install and maintain all of the electrical and power systems that are in homes, businesses, and factories. Most recently BES Ltd have added Electrical vehicle charging that covers electrical vehicles. What could be next, electrical trains and aeroplanes?

As electricians in Coventry, we install and maintain the wiring and control equipment through which electricity will flow. Our electricians install and maintain electrical equipment and machines in factories and a wide range of other commercial property.

Our electricians in Coventry generally deal with all sorts of electrical work.

One type of electrical work that we might do is in the construction industry. Electrical work in the construction industry would be installing lots of wiring systems into factories, and local Coventry businesses, as well as new home builds.

Another type of electrical work can be more on the fix, maintaining and updating side of things of already existing electrical systems. Elderly electrical systems often need an upgrade, also as electricians in Coventry another area of our work is repairing electrical equipment.

All electricians in Coventry and the UK including emergency electricians have to follow certain building standards and electrical codes and regulations set locally and nationally. This enables all electrical work is done to a certain level and all the work is safe by following these regulations.

How Electricians Work

Commercial Electricians usually start their work by reading blueprints and technical diagrams showing the locations of circuits, outlets, load centers, panel boards, and other equipment. After determining where all the wires and components will go, electricians install and connect the wires to things like circuit breakers, transformers and other components and systems.

For installing electrical wiring, electricians use hand tools like screwdrivers, pliers, wire benders, knives, hacksaws, and wire strippers, as well as general power tools. After, to test the electrical connections they will use things like ohmmeters and voltmeters which ensure the safety of the electrical components involved.

A Maintenance electrician repair or even replace electronic equipment when it breaks down. They make needed repairs as quickly as possible in order to minimise the down time. They may replace items such as circuit breakers, fuses, switches, electrical and electronic components, or wire.

Periodic testing and electrical maintenance

Electricians also periodically inspect all equipment to ensure that it is operating properly and to correct problems before breakdowns occur, a form of this is PAT Testing which stands for portable appliance testing.

Electrical maintenance work can vary a lot. For example, domestic electricians who work mainly on residential projects will work on a wide ranging amount of electrical work for homeowners, often quite small things. The larger type of work a domestic electrician will do is a full home rewire or replace an old fuse box with an updated circuit breaker allowing for more appliances to be added to the electrical system. Another large project might be to install new lighting inside and outside the house. Then there is the small electrical repairs to existing plugs and sockets, socket extensions that sort of thing.

Electricians in large factories usually do maintenance work that is more complex. These kinds of electricians may repair motors, transformers, generators, and electronic controllers on machine tools and industrial robots. They also advise management as to whether the continued operation of certain equipment could be hazardous. When working with complex electronic devices, they may consult with engineers, engineering technicians, line installers and repairers, or industrial machinery mechanics and maintenance workers.

Work Environment of Electricians

Electricians work indoors and out, at construction sites, in homes, and in businesses or factories. The work may be strenuous at times and may include bending conduit, lifting heavy objects, and standing, stooping, and kneeling for long periods. Electricians risk injury from electrical shock, falls, and cuts, and must follow strict safety procedures to avoid injuries.

Electricians Education & Training Required

Apprenticeship programs combine paid on-the-job training with related classroom instruction. Because of the full training electricians receive, those who complete apprenticeships usually qualify to do both maintenance and construction work. Apprenticeship schemes often involve classroom learning as well as on the job training.

On the job, apprentices work under the supervision of experienced electricians. At first, they drill holes, set anchors and attach conduit. Later, they measure, fabricate, and install conduit and install, connect, and test wiring, outlets, and switches. They also learn to set up and draw diagrams for entire electrical systems. Eventually, they practice and master all of an electrician's main tasks.

Education continues throughout an electrician's career, because of ever changing regulations and codes. This means they may even need to go back to classroom to learn these.

As with electric cars the work can also change and evolve so there is always a need to keep updated.
