Professional electrical maintenance services ensure that the electrical systems in your commercial building will always keep running smoothly.
It’s part of doing business. Your commercial property will require ongoing electrical system maintenance services.
Unfortunately, many commercial property owners won’t know they have a problem until there is a problem when electrical repairs can be even more expensive.
Save yourself the headache with regular electrical maintenance by a qualified commercial electrician. Your business, and your bottom line, will thank you.
The Importance of Electrical Preventative Maintenance
Time is money, isn’t that what our elders always say? Well, some things don’t change because electrical system failure can put a massive dent in your bottom line.
Commercial electrical maintenance is a critical part of your business if you want things to run smoothly with as few interruptions as possible.
As part of our electrical maintenance services, we develop a checklist that we follow, specific to your business. To minimize downtime, this preventative electrical maintenance work is completely on a predetermined schedule that will best suit your daily operations.
What Does Building Electrical Maintenance Look Like?
Our commercial electricians will conduct the following:
- Regular checks of system wiring for wear or tear.
- Inspecting all circuit breakers, electrical panels, and electrical grounding.
- Inspecting all electrical equipment and machinery.
- Conducting insulation resistance tests.
- Routine servicing and replacing faulty parts as needed.
That’s just scratching the surface! We can also conduct thermal imaging inspections to uncover what can’t be seen with the eyes alone.
Electrical failures can not only disrupt your operations, cause equipment failure, and cost you a lot of money, but they are also safety hazards. Don’t put the health of your team or your business at risk. As they say, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”
The Benefits of Electrical System Maintenance Services
Prioritizes Workplace Safety
Do you want to spend all day working with faulty equipment? Probably not, and we bet your employees don’t want that either.
Aside from being annoying, malfunctioning equipment can become a major worksite safety violation, resulting in more incidents and WCB claims.
Overworked machinery that isn’t adequately serviced can overheat, catch fire, or explode. This risks the lives and safety of your team. Even if such an incident happens after hours, the entire building could burn down before emergency services are alerted.
Don’t risk the health and livelihoods of your employees. Organizations that prioritize electrical maintenance services reduce the risk of failure, minimize workplace incidents and claims, and improve workplace safety compliance.
Aside from complying with safety regulations, reducing equipment downtime is one of the top reasons businesses prioritize electrical system maintenance. However, if your building is dealing with electrical issues, you must deal with them immediately.
When an electrical problem interferes with your business’s productivity, the costs can add up quickly. There’s the cost of repairing or replacing the malfunctioning equipment, plus the loss in production because of that equipment not being operational. Depending on the electrical work or parts required, that machine might be out of commission for days or even weeks!
Equipment Will Last Longer
An overloaded circuit may be putting unnecessary strain on your factory equipment. Overworking this machinery day in and day out can lead to a shortened lifespan and hefty replacement costs. This can be a very pricey mistake when you consider the machinery used by your average industry or commercial building.
Without proper electrical system maintenance services, your equipment will eventually break down.
Studies have shown that industrial and commercial machinery that receives regular maintenance services performs better and lasts longer than those that only receive maintenance or repairs following a breakdown.
Electrical equipment and systems that aren’t maintained degrade faster, while equipment that regularly gets the royal treatment stays ahead of issues before they can arise.
Regular electrical maintenance services save you money by necessitating fewer electrical repairs. Repair services for an important system or piece of equipment can cost a pretty penny, not to mention downtime.
Depending on how disruptive the malfunction is, you might even need an emergency repair, which can come at a premium.
Add the price of replacement parts and rush delivery, and you’re looking at a massive pain in your profit.
Being proactive can save you a lot of money with fewer breakdowns and interruptions to your business.
Reacting to an electrical problem after it’s already happened can mean more emergency repairs or future expensive equipment replacements.
It can even be the cause of workplace accidents and the possibility of avoidable injury or death at your workplace. It’s not worth it.
Don’t skip the little things. By working with a licensed commercial electrician and having regular electrical maintenance services completed, you can rest easy knowing you are following a winning (and cost-saving) strategy.
