Inadequately maintained electrical systems are a leading cause of business interruption, poor energy efficiency, and premature equipment breakdown.

Every electrical system has a life span and failure of electrical systems is inevitable over time. However, while the deterioration of electrical systems and electrical equipment is normal, an effective preventative maintenance program can delay failure. How?

The whole idea behind a preventive maintenance program is to prevent anticipated failures. This is accomplished through regularly servicing equipment, identifying replacement intervals and scheduling outages to perform the repairs. It allows you to recognize and respond to severe conditions before they develop under controlled circumstances.

Reality check: Not “If” but “When and How”

A well planned and executed electrical preventive maintenance (EPM) program will reduce equipment failures, unplanned down time and unbudgeted expenditures.
This translates into cost savings and prolonged equipment life spans.

It is cheaper to make repairs before equipment fails. Failed equipment results in unplanned outages that can be very costly when replacement equipment cannot be easily found. Instead of having a planned system outage for EPM at the most convenient time for your operation, equipment failures are always at inopportune times. Emergency repairs are very costly due to the urgency of the situation where temporary work is required before a permanent repair can be done.
Also, an effective EPM program will improve equipment efficiency and reduce utility bills. A loose or dirty connection has increased resistance which results in higher power losses. By simply tightening and cleaning electrical connections, you can lower these energy costs. When considered over a period of time, these energy losses can add up to quite a significant amount of money.

Assess, implement and sustain.

For an EPM program to achieve long term success, it must be well defined, well understood and properly implemented and documented. To find out more about how an electrical preventative maintenance program can benefit your property, contact Trigon Electrical Inc.
