Professional Electrical Services

Bjarnason’s Electrical Service Ltd. is well versed in the operation of many systems employed in the facilities that make up our daily lives. If your equipment is giving you trouble, or isn’t operating the way it should, we can help. Our experience comes from our in-depth technical training and numerous service calls to our clients’ establishments. Some of our services include:


  • Electrical troubleshooting

  • Meg-ohm testing

  • Infrared thermography

  • Motors

  • Pumps

  • Contactors

  • Lighting

  • HVAC

  • Fuses


Proactive Infrared Thermography Maintenance Services

We also offer infrared thermography for those who prefer a proactive approach in their maintenance program. Combined with a solid understanding of electrical theory, this tool can be utilized to determine which areas of the electrical system are weak and in need of attention. Oftentimes a simple re-torque on the electrical connection in question will provide years of continued use vs. a failed component and peripheral damage.


Avoid Downtime For Your Business

Clients who rely on our electrical services are involved in many industries, including food and beverage processing, material handling, utilities providers, aggregate processing and manufacturing. When we receive a call for service, one of the biggest factors weighing on our decisions is downtime for your business.


We are acutely aware of the fact that not only are you faced with the costs incurred with repairing your equipment, you have employees who are not able to produce, potential for spoiled product and no revenue being generated by the malfunctioning system. Lets get it fixed! Next time you need your system up and running, give us a call.

Un-Interrupted Power Solutions

Does your installation need power, even when there is none? The utility grid is a reliable system for the majority of electrical systems, but if yours is located far from a utility connection or the equipment cannot afford to be offline, we have solutions to address the need. Whether you require absolute zero power interruption, or just need a stand-by source to ride you through an occasional utility outage, many options can be discussed including:


  • Diesel, natural gas, propane and gasoline fired generator units

  • Automatic transfer switches

  • Manual transfer switches

  • UPS battery backup systems

  • UPS bypass transfer switches

  • Load management systems

  • Net metering equipment

  • Kohler, Cummins, Generac

Large-Scale Back-up Plans

We’ve installed numerous generator systems and standby power systems for a diverse group of clients. From server equipment that hosts the business systems of a major Canadian electrical wholesaler, to those who need their water system operable in the event of a power outage, we’ve been there. When one of BC’s primary gas transmission utilities required standby backup power for their pipeline equipment they relied on us to install the required system. In service, with no interruptions to date, the project has been a success for everyone involved.
