The availability and proper working of electrical systems in a commercial facility is integral to employee productivity and efficiency. Lighting, air conditioning systems, computer networks, the security set up such as CCTV and fire alarms need to be maintained well with timely repair and replacement as and when required.
Loose wiring, damaged circuit breakers and worn out electrical equipment could be a cause of major safety hazard in the premises. The loose wiring might also cause power fluctuations in the devices or cause them to operate erratically.
Electrical maintenance includes not only the installation of new devices but also the complete testing of all existing equipment and machines. The emergency lighting, signage and power indicator displays must also be checked. If any flaws are discovered, they need to be repaired by proficient and licensed commercial electrical contractor.
The electrical maintenance in a commercial facility is more complex than residential electrical maintenance. The total power consumption in a commercial enterprise being huge, provision for earthing, switch board placement, over current protection and electrical motors installation calls for detailed planning and schematic configuration. Electrical maintenance needs to be in compliance with the latest regulations.
To ensure proper electrical maintenance, all equipment must be checked for signs of:
- Damage to the cable covering: cuts and abrasion on the cover
- Damage to the plug: cracks on the casing, bent pins
- Non standard joints including taped joints in the cable
- Damage to the outer cover of the equipment or loose parts and screws
- Burn marks or stains due to over heating
Testing is also an important phase of maintenance. Electrical contractors have to ensure that the complete system is fool proof and the devices perform with complete efficiency for at least the next 15-20 years.
For a commercial facility such a hotel or guest house, electrical maintenance is essential to ensure customer satisfaction. Proper functioning of central heating and cooling systems, lighting, communication and entertainment devices is integral to the operations of an organization that works in the very domain of hospitality.
