How do I benefit from electrical preventative maintenance?

How do I benefit from EPM?

A preventive maintenance program will help you protect your electrical distribution system – and even your entire facility.

Here are some of the top reasons to implement an electrical preventive maintenance program:  

Business Interruptions

Power surges, spikes, transients, and poor preventive maintenance can cause damage on a regular basis.  These events wear down components and eventually cause premature failure. The more power your facility uses, the greater the risk of failure. Electrical failures are inevitable without preventive maintenance.

Life/Safety Risks

According to the National Fire Protection Association, “A well-administered electrical preventive maintenance program will reduce accidents, save lives; minimize costly breakdowns and unplanned shutdowns of equipment.”

Utility Costs

The National Energy Management Institute states that, “Improperly torqued connections and bad contacts because of increased amperage draw and power loss as well as heating and arcing (which is both ineffective and dangerous).” Without preventive maintenance, the distribution system can waste electricity, costing you more in utility bills.

Power Quality Analysis

Power quality problems cause loss of data and malfunction of computerized equipment.

Surge Suppression

Surge protection systems protect your facility from lightning damage and transients.

Insurance/Certification

Insurance companies lose millions of dollars each year due to electrical failure. When insurance companies lose, so do their customers. More and more, insurance companies are encouraging their customers to participate in electrical preventive maintenance. It’s a savings for all.

Asset Management

The average life expectancy of your electrical distribution system is only 17 years when electrical preventive maintenance is not performed. When your electrical system is cared for, its life expectancy can be 35 years.

Manufacturers’ Recommendations

All manufacturers of electrical equipment require periodic maintenance. A TEGG Service Contractor can meet those requirements and maximize the life of your facility’s electrical distribution system.
