At AMPNET we provide scheduled maintenance for commercial businesses and have designed an easy system to keep clients up to date with their electrical safety and maintenance needs. As a professional electrical contractor, we recognise the importance of providing a non-disruptive solution that minimises downtime.
Should You Be Doing Electrical Preventive Maintenance to your commercial building?
Yes you bet!
Too many people mistakenly think a lack of moving parts means little can go wrong with the electrical system within your building. The fact is the two top causes of electrical distribution failures are loose connections and exposure to moisture. These account for nearly half of all electrical losses. Both problems can be corrected with a comprehensive Scheduled Electrical Maintenance Plan (SEMP) and prevent costly interruptions for tenants.
Consider these four factors when planning a program for your building:
Electrical preventive maintenance is cost-effective in many ways, improves equipment efficiency and reduces utility bills. Don’t neglect your electrical distribution system. Consider AMPNET’s Scheduled Electrical Maintenance Plan before a costly failure occurs.

Appliance test and tagging
Appliance test and tagging aims to ensure that all appliance within the building a safe for tenant or visitors. We visually check the appliance and perform an earth continuity and insulation resistance test. The appliances that pass these tests a then fitted with a tag which is entered on our register. The regularity of the testing is determined by environment in which the appliance operates.
