The difference between commercial and residential electricians

Whether you have an electrical issue at home or at work, the result is the same: it’s a pain and a hassle and you just want to get the issue fixed as quickly as possible. But before you pick up the phone, it’s important to understand that there are differences between electrical services required in the home and those required in the workplace, and choosing the correct service for you is important.

So, let’s have a look at the difference between commercial and residential electricians and what it means for you.

How to save on energy bills in Adelaide

With South Australia’s electricity rates only going in one direction (we’ll give you two answers and here’s a further tip, it’s not down!), most homeowners in Adelaide are asking how they can save on energy bills. The good thing is that it’s not difficult or necessarily expensive to keep your electricity usage down, so here are our top eight tips.

Are you putting your property at risk with inadequate Emergency and Exit lighting?

For retail locations and commercial offices, emergency lighting procedures need to be present. They protect not only your employees but also any customers who may be on site.

Often, business owners overlook the emergency lighting of a commercial building. Emergency lighting is specially designed and positioned to help people see an escape route in the event of an emergency. It can be the difference between life and death.


All Australian buildings constructed after 1 July 1994 that are classified as Class 6 buildings with more than 100m2 MUST be fitted with at least one Emergency & Exit lighting sign. Class 6 Buildings include cafes, bars, shops, restaurants and dining rooms.

Adelaide Urban Electrical can offer economical emergency lights, LED emergency lights and commercial emergency lights. Let our team meet your emergency, exit and outdoor lighting needs for your commercial, retail, industrial, or office buildings.

Our team is your expert in the commercial building space. We offer the most advanced, premium quality lighting emergency solutions that work for all businesses – large and small.


Emergency & exit light testing is a 6-monthly legislative requirement, which will ultimately help to increase the safety for employees and clients in your workplace. Call AUE for more information on how we can assist.


 Protect yourself and your home with an outdoor security lighting solution from Adelaide Urban Electrical.

 Outdoor lighting is one of the most effective ways of protecting your Adelaide commercial property. Without it, you are putting your commercial property at risk.

 While it is always a wise idea to have another security measure in place, the presence of security lighting is often enough to put off unwanted intruders. Our expertise in the installation of outdoor lighting can create not only a safety feature but also a welcoming appeal for your business.

 We can also provide you with motion activation lighting systems. Motion activation saves thousands of hours of run time per year and prolongs the life of security lights. It’s a smarter way to deter crime and can illuminate outdoor areas for your staff and clientele.

 Our team is here to provide you with expert advice on LED lighting systems. LED systems are not only long-lasting but also energy-efficient and cost-effective.
