Electricity is an integral part of your business operations. As it provides the power to perform and achieve many things, it is easy to take for granted how dangerous it can be. As a business, industrial plant, or property manager, it is your responsibility to ensure that your electrical system is routinely maintained so that it is reliable for smooth business operations and safe for your employees. If regular maintenance of electrical equipment is not performed, it can pose the opportunity for major hazards – including unwanted downtime, severe injury, or even death.
Luckily, RBT provides a team of best-licensed electricians to keep your facility running safely. Keep reading to learn about the benefits of regular preventative maintenance for your electrical system.
Prevention of Fire and Safety Issues
Predominately, one of the most important reasons for regular preventative maintenance of your electrical system is for the prevention of an electrical fire. Minor issues like short circuits, flickering lights, or faulty wirings can be overlooked and lead to electrical fires. With routine inspection, wiring and fixtures, as well as old, faulty, or overused installations can be identified and replaced. Apart from faulty wiring and overloaded circuits, regular maintenance also involves checking for potential risks of electrocution, electric shots, and other fire risks to ensure safety.
Improved Energy Efficiency
With routine electrical maintenance, you can identify any defect in your electrical control design, including electrical panels and cable layout. Typically, high power consumption and electrical issues go hand in hand. This is because of improperly torqued connections and bad contacts which increase amperage draw, power loss as well as heating and arcing. RBT understands that electrical control panels are an essential element of industrial automation and modern manufacturing. That’s why we offer full in-house design/build capabilities, fabricate and install high-quality control panels for any type of industrial, manufacturing, and commercial facilities. We provide service as well because, without preventative maintenance, the distribution system can waste electricity, costing you more in utility bills.
Reduce Business Interruptions
Power surges, spikes, transients, and poor preventative maintenance can cause damage on a regular basis. These events can wear down components and eventually cause premature failure. The more power your facility uses, the greater the risk of failure. Furthermore, manual and automated productivity can be greatly affected by electrical outages or issues. Maintenance of the electrical system will see to it that there are minimal disruptions in the processes that use power. At RBT, we know that production uptime is essential to any manufacturing facility and fast reaction to breakdown is crucial. That’s why we provide emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
