Is Electrical Preventative Maintenance Important?

Posted on: January 15, 2016

Maybe you have never heard of electrical preventative maintenance or maybe you have but decided that you had no need for it. Many people ask if preventative maintenance for your commercial building is important—the answer is yes. The electrical system in your property is the most essential system throughout your building. Not only do the electrical systems in your building provide lighting for employees and clients, but they also play in an essential role in day-to-day operations—supplying power to almost every essential electrical device your business depends on.

Why Is Electrical Preventative Maintenance Important?

Let’s look at some of the most important reasons as to why you should be scheduling preventative maintenance for your electrical system.

  • Reduces Failure Rate – If you have ever had your electrical system fail, or you have had an appliance fail, you likely understand that this can be a huge hassle. Failed equipment can also cause damage to other parts around it. A system that is not maintained on a regular basis has a much higher failure rate, costing you a lot more in the long run.
  • Saves You Money – Electrical systems that are well-maintained run more efficiently and effectively. So while scheduling regular maintenance may cost you a small amount, it can save you money on your energy bills over and over again. Replacing parts before they fail can also save you money, a part that fails usually takes out other electrical parts around it costing you more than it would have to replace just one part.
  • Reduces Unplanned Outages – When you have an unplanned electrical outage it can cost your business time and money. Often you will have to shut down for a period of time till you can get your electrical damage fixed. When you schedule maintenance you can schedule a planned outage for a time that suits your business. This maintenance will reduce the risk of unplanned outages in the future.
  • Extends the Life of Your Equipment – Whether you are maintaining your car or your home’s heating and cooling system preventative maintenance can help extend the life of any system. Your electrical system is no different, a good preventative maintenance schedule will help your electrical system stay in good shape for a much longer period than a system that is left to its own devices.

As you can see a regular maintenance schedule for your commercial electrical system can help save you money, time, and improve the energy efficiency of your commercial building.

When looking for an electrical company to perform electrical maintenance on your system, you will need to find a team of electrical technicians that are trained in commercial electrical work. Commercial buildings can be much different to residential buildings and a specific skill set is needed to make sure your electrical system remains safe, working at its full potential.
