Why Effective Electrical Maintenance Can Save you Money

April 4, 2022

Unexpected downtime can be an expensive. When an electrical fault occurs, it occurs rapidly, often resulting in major damage to electrical assets. This leaves your business inoperable and vulnerable to the costs associated with downtime and loss of production.  By integrating an effective electrical maintenance program, you can ensure unexpected downtime does not happen. In this article you will understand how that translates into valuable cost savings for your business. 

What is Electrical Maintenance?

  • Inspection and testing of systems using specialised equipment
  • Thermography of electrical equipment and its components 
  • Ultrasonic analysis for early-stage fault detection
  • Fault diagnosis
  • Routine de-energised servicing of switchboards and associated equipment
  • Repair of electrical components

It is important to note that the above must be completed by a licensed electrician. 

Why electrical maintenance is important?

  • Safety of persons
  • Maintains the integrity & reliability of systems
  • Minimises unscheduled downtime
  • Provides user protection as well as equipment protection
  • Minor on the spot repairs decrease residual risk of larger electrical faults
  • Protects against the risk of electrical fires, inadvertent loss of supply, and damage to expensive electrical equipment
  • Extends the lifespan of electrical equipment
  • Increases the efficiency of your equipment resulting in lower power consumption/cost

How electrical maintenance saves you money

  • Reduces the risk of unscheduled downtime and loss of production due to healthy operating systems
  • Provides a safe working environment for employees by minimising exposure to electrical hazards resulting in loss of time injuries (LTI’s)
  • Increases power quality and equipment efficiency resulting in decreased power consumption/cost

Now that you are aware of the what, why and how of electrical maintenance it is important you speak to a qualified and licenced electrician about your specific electrical installation and what your site requires to operate safely and cost efficiently.
