- Annual electrical system safety inspection. (Includes ALL service-related components) Example: Meter, Main panels, Subpanels, and distribution. (480 volt/277v) & (120v/208) system as applicable. ALL HIGHVOLTAGE equipment above 480v excluded.
- Inspection of Grounding path & Bonding path at main service & utility interconnection device for low voltage. (Will also check within panels while doing maintenance below)
- Thermal imaging of Electrical Equipment. (Above mentioned) (Once a year)
- Proper torqueing of electrical terminations within panels, gear, subpanels, meter and circuit breaker connections as well as neutrals & grounds within electrical system.
- Functionality testing of GFCI and AFCI devices. (Ground fault receptacles or breakers & Arc Fault breakers)
Cost – ($ ) For total coverage of all 5 points above.
-($ ) – IF Functionality testing of GFCI and AFCI devices. (Ground fault receptacles or breakers & Arc Fault breakers) is removed from the services offered.
NOTE: If the facility signs up for a maintenance agreement, the rates for service calls will be lower than standard as per the following:
General Service call rates (w/agreement in place and in good standing)
(Monday-Fri)730am-430pm – $225 (MINIMUM) “1st hour. If additional time is needed, we bill at a rate of $115/hr. A discount of $27.50 will be applied to the minimum walk-in fee IF we need to stay beyond 1st hr.
Currently, we do not offer 24-7 support.
Testing of equipment, safety inspections, Thermal imaging, inspections, and proper torqueing of electrical terminations (WILL Take place once a year during “off peak season”) Jan 31st-April 15th”.
Electrical equipment and electrical systems are not designed for or meant to have unending use. At some point, components in any device or system will break down, and the more complex a system is, the more likely it will be to break down. This breakdown will be hastened by neglecting routine maintenance, equipment testing, and cleaning.
Thus, having a preventative maintenance program in place for electrical components is a wise investment, as it can save you money in the long run. According to published studies by FM Global and the Hartford Steam Boiler Insurance Company, failures of electrical equipment cost business owners millions of dollars in lost business and damages every year, while lacking a maintenance program will place a facility in a “run to breakdown” mode, which means that the failure of the electrical system is an inevitability.
According to IEEE Standard 902, “a lack of maintenance eventually results in failures and a high cost to a plant.” In fact, there can be as much as three times more likelihood of electrical damage in facilities that neglect preventative maintenance than those that do. Also, neglecting preventative maintenance can void equipment warranties and the conditions and terms of an insurer’s policy.
It should also be noted that undertaking maintenance on separate pieces of equipment within a system is not the same as maintaining the entire system. Comprehensive maintenance should cover all equipment within an electrical system, making sure that all components are operating as designed. Doing so is the best way to minimize power outages, service interruptions, and equipment malfunction.
