Hire A Commercial Electrician To Attract More Tenants

Back to blog

Are you in real estate or a property developer handling commercial properties? If so, you probably have a host of handy people and tradies to manage repairs and maintenance. It is important that you do your research on your trade companies because at the end of the day, you will be working closely with these trades people.

But just make sure you have not disregarded hiring a commercial electrician. Aside from lowered service costs, there are so many reasons why hiring a good commercial electrician can save you time and energy in the long term. We will take a look at these reasons and why they can also help improve your chances of attracting more tenants.

Electrical safety inspections by Commercial Electrician

Not only will the OH&S officer compliment you on your proactiveness in organising an electrical safety inspection, but by implementing an electrical safety inspection before the tenant even moves in means you have tackled the task and that staff and visitors will be in safe hands.

Plus, it will be an extra thing off the tenant’s mind knowing that an expert commercial electrician has eliminated any potential safety issues. Damaged power points and other electrical problems as well as trip hazards from faulty wiring and electrical cords can be dangerous. The last thing a tenant wants is their staff or visitors involved in an accident that could otherwise have been prevented.

Tenants’ safety

While we have covered this briefly above, your tenants’ safety can never be emphasised enough. Safety should always come first, especially when it involves electricity.

Licensed commercial electricians in Melbourne, such as Kenner Electrics, can assist in identifying potential hazards and provide suggestions for improved comfort and safety, including emergency lighting. Your commercial electrician will also have clear insight into the most up-to-date security systems and those which work best in your property.

Your tenant will feel safer knowing that CCTV or automatic lights are functioning as they should when staff leave the building late at night.

Energy efficient assessments by Commercial Electrician

It is common knowledge that energy efficient appliances, systems and lights will help you save money in the long run. When your electrical installations are running at their most efficient, you will see not only lowered electricity bills but less maintenance over the long term.

Your licensed electrician can offer suggestions on the best lighting and installation options for the commercial property. They will also advise which appliances should be updated to more energy efficient models and can even install these for you. Also, power saving lights or power saving settings on lighting will run more efficiently and help save you money overall.

It pays to manage your building in an energy-efficient manner. By lowering carbon emissions, you will attract far more tenants, have lower tenant turnover and can even command higher rent and prices.

Commercial Electrician inspections and maintenance

Your licensed commercial electrician should routinely perform emergency light inspections in addition to general electrical safety inspections so that you stay up to date with your regulatory electrical compliance obligations. This lowers the risk of a circuit blowout or lighting issues.

Should an electrical failure or blackout occur, emergency lights will add an additional level of safety by lighting the path to evacuate. So, all emergency lighting should be tested regularly to ensure it is always functioning. A licensed commercial electrician will have full knowledge of the laws surrounding these regular electrical safety checks.

Lighting Inspection

You probably had no idea that lighting can account for up to 40% of total electricity use in buildings. That’s right. But a commercial electrician can suggest ways to reduce lighting costs, such as automatic controls and removing excess lights (de-lamping).

There are some great options for saving on energy, such as replacing inefficient bulbs with new LED lights. And putting a timer on motion-sensing systems can further increase savings.

And the way to attract tenants? Humans have a fascination with lights. A commercial electrician can assist you in creating a stylish or welcoming entrance to illuminate your property. Just imagine how impressed potential tenants will be with a lit-up staircase or garden lights.

Final thoughts on Hiring Commercial Electrician

As we have established here, it is not only homes that require electrical services, but businesses do too. And it helps to have a good relationship with your commercial electrician. That way, you can utilise the one electrical company for servicing multiple sites instead of having to handle several different contractors.
