One loose connection is all it takes to put your business in danger!
Considering how complex today’s electrical equipment is, preventive maintenance is the only viable solution if companies wish to save on overall maintenance costs.
If you’re looking for an effective EPM program guide for your company, keep reading. In this article, I’ll provide a comprehensive electrical preventative maintenance checklist that covers all maintenance inspection bases.
Let’s get right into it.
Electrical preventative maintenance isn’t just an important way to avoid preventable electrical repairs and maintain your system. It’s also a great way to save money!
Using electricity produces heat. Over time, that heat causes expanding and contracting of an electrical system. This cyclical heating and cooling can cause the screws to loosen in the electrical panels.
Electrical preventive maintenance refers to maintenance procedures that are performed to prevent damage and malfunction to electrical connections and local networks.
Electrical maintenance is typically performed in the following areas:
- Residential Locations: Houses, apartments/condos, and mobile homes are included in this category.
- Industrial and Commercial Establishments: These include factories, hotels, shopping malls, entertainment centers, etc.
- Healthcare and Special Occupancies: Hospitals, assembly lines, storage areas, boatyards/marinas, and theaters are included in this category.

The Cost of Repair vs. Replacement
Taking a reactive approach means the ultimate moment of equipment failure will be an unknown, unpredictable challenge you’ll have to face – likely sooner than necessary.
Unplanned shutdowns due to equipment failures are just that – unplanned. They are never convenient.
More often than not, your equipment will fail in the middle of operations causing production delays. You could try to schedule emergency repairs on short notice, but you’ll still have to pay premium service costs for the effort.
When machinery breaks down due to neglected inspection and maintenance, it’s often too late for simple repairs. This is where those hefty costs come in.
The importance of preventive maintenance
The term ‘if it’s not broken, don’t fix it’ still applies to many industries. But due to increasing costs of downtime, we want to emphasize on the benefits of preventive maintenance.
Operator and machine safety
By performing a regular preventive maintenance, you are assured your equipment remains to operate under safe conditions, both for the machine and the operators. Possible issues can be nipped in the but before they have a chance to cause harm.
A planned preventive maintenance may cause small hindrance for production, but that is nothing compared to actual downtime caused by a breakdown. Because it is planned, production can propose the optimal time and can factor in the nuisance. Preventative maintenance procedures take less time than emergency repairs and replacements.
Our technicians dispose of a fully equipped service with all necessary tools for maintenance and repairs.
During a preventive maintenance on an installation, a maintenance report is made up, in which all electrical parts are checked. Remarks are noted in the maintenance report of which the customer receives a copy.
