Residential Electrician vs. Commercial Electrician

The main difference between commercial and residential electricians is where they work. The former focuses on stores, offices, and warehouses whereas the latter are trained to handle problems in a less populated setting such as houses and apartments.
In Texas, residential electricians typically work with electrical systems containing no more than 240 volts of electricity which is the normal voltage used by home appliances like ovens, vacuums, and washing machines while commercial electricians deal with machines of a higher voltage of up to 480.
