Barts Electric Careers

What is an Electrician?

All of our electrical and power system installations and maintenance are done by electricians. Electricians install and maintain all of the electrical wiring and control devices that allow electricity to flow. These workers also maintain and install electrical equipment in a variety of businesses, including office buildings, factories, stadiums, and so much more.

Although most electricians specialize in one area, many do both. The majority of electricians who specialize in construction install wiring systems in building utilized in businesses. They are also specialized in the maintenance and upgrading of existing electric systems and repairs to electrical equipment. It’s important to note that when performing work, all electricians must adhere to the State and Local Building Codes and the National Electrical Code.

Blueprints are technical drawings that describe the location of electrical equipment, such as panel boards and load centers. This is how electricians start their job. Once they have determined the location of all wires and other components, electricians connect them to the circuit breakers, transformers or outlets.

An electrician uses a variety of tools to install electrical systems. These include conduit benders and screwdrivers as well as pliers and hacksaws. They use ammeters and voltmeters to verify the safety and compatibility of all components.

The work of an electrician can vary greatly depending on the location. The majority of electricians do a variety of work and are generally trained to work on most electrical systems. A construction electrician may focus upon business infrastructure but can also rewire your home or install lighting fixtures and other electrical household equipment.

At Barts Electric our employees mostly perform the construction of electrical systems for government entities and businesses. These various entites provide services in various ways to the people of the United States, whether it be the federal government, the military, hospitals, correctional institutions, schools, and other industries.

Career electricians will typically share how rewarding their life has been as an electrician. And many will share about how they have become a millionaire working as an electrician for progressive companies like Barts Electric.
