Successful companies sometime take for granted the electrical systems that support the backbone of their operations. And once one of those systems hits a glitch, the whole business can be exposed to a potentially hazardous situation or costly repair.

That’s why there’s a need for facilities to perform regular maintenance on their electrical systems. Electrical Preventive Maintenance (EPM) is the practice of implementing routine and recurring maintenance procedures to prevent damage or malfunction to electrical connections and electrical distribution system equipment.

As an experienced EPM contractor, Harrington Electric Co. offers “EPM+,” a proactive preventive maintenance service designed to ensure the reliability and safety of a facility’s electrical system. This service can ensure electrical system integrity through routine testing and maintaining the operation’s electrical distribution equipment.

A thorough EPM service can preserve and protect your operation in five key areas, resulting in various cost savings, increased safety and decreased management risks.


    Constant wear and tear on electrical systems can result in deterioration that can present a host of shock, burn or electrocution hazards. A properly administered maintenance review can detect and eliminate such hazards and keep your workers safe.


    Facility fires are often caused by faulty wiring or outdated and unsafe equipment. A thorough review of electrical systems will help your business avoid incidences of fires and other potential damage.


    From lights to machinery to computers, a power interruption can be disastrous for any business. An EPM program can help an operation decrease down-time and avoid such interruptions.


    Insurance carriers all advocate for regular preventive maintenance programs for any business operation as a concrete way to reduce risks for their underwriters.


    Any facility manager knows that proper maintenance will keep machinery running, systems operating, personnel protected and management happy, while drastically reducing the incidences of sleepless nights.
