Proactive Electrical Services

Why do I need Proactive Electrical Services?

  • Prevent unplanned and/or unnecessary downtime
  • Reduce risk of electrical failure, fire and safety hazard
  • Reduction in utility costs
  • Help control your electrical budget
  • Insurance certification

By proactively testing and maintaining your electrical distribution system, we will identify and diagnose anomalies (hot-spots, potential for arc flash, code violations, etc.) before they lead to problems that can result in catastrophic failure or fire. Electrical problems that produce heat are wasting electricity, and damaging EDS components, so there is a lot of money to be saved when these problems are discovered and fixed early. Also, because of the widely recognized value of Proactive Electrical Services, many insurance providers will offer rebates to customers who are regularly maintaining their systems and reducing their risk.
