Electrical Preventative Maintenance

Many costly electrical breakdowns can be prevented by the kind of quality installation work Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air’s electricians perform, but there’s another part of the equation that’s just as important: routine electrical preventative maintenance, also known as EPM.

Quality electrical preventive maintenance is absolutely vital for industrial facilities across Alabama. When a problem shuts down a manufacturing facility, warehouse operation, or call center, the lost dollars add up minute-by-minute. Chaos ensues, and there’s no time to wonder if improper or lack of maintenance is the reason for the shutdown.

Fortunately, you can depend on Dixie to find problems before they happen. We go above and beyond industry standards via the use of the very latest thermal imaging tools. With thorough site surveys and infrared thermo imaging, we are able to detect faulty electrical wiring, improve energy efficiency, and locate hot spots that could cause an electrical fire. The fix might be as simple as a single breaker in a service panel, but when located early, it could prevent a business disruption disaster.

Take a moment to let some of these numbers compiled by Hartford sink in:

3 times greater: The failure rate on components NOT part of a preventive program
⅔ of electrical failures: That’s how many can be prevented by routine preventive maintenance
Millions of dollars: Estimated costs each year from damage and lost business caused by electrical failures

Most think they can pick up the phone and call any random electrician to get professional electrical preventive maintenance. Unfortunately, it’s not something every electrician can do. electrical preventive maintenance is a specialty. Our Dixie electricians have a thorough understanding of electrical safety and procedures and are trained to prevent costly breakdowns.

Without thorough preventative maintenance, however, that single breaker continues to overheat and damage or destroy your entire electrical panel. Now the plant is shut down for hours, and the losses quickly mount into hundreds of thousands of dollars—or even more.

According to the Hartford Insurance Company, there should be an infrared or thermographic inspection on distribution panels, cable connections, motor control centers, and other critical equipment. They recommend at least one inspection every three years, and more frequently in some situations.

Electrical preventive maintenance requires special training. Count on Dixie’s electricians to have a thorough understanding of electrical safety and procedures, with the training behind it to prevent costly breakdowns.
