Taking a Proactive vs. Reactive Approach to Maintenance

In the fast-paced commercial and industrial operations world, your maintenance strategy can make or break your business. You can either wait until there’s a problem that requires repairs or take measures to prevent as many issues as possible from occurring in the first place. Fortunately, the experts at Ridgeline Electrical Industries can help you in both scenarios. Let’s explore the difference between taking a proactive approach and a reactive approach¬†and the impact they will each make on your bottom line.

Electrical Repairs and Maintenance

Is Reactive Maintenance the Best Approach?

Simply put, reactive maintenance is making repairs in response to a breakdown or some other electrical issue. Once it happens, the affected company will contact trusted professionals to make a service call and repair the equipment. This approach might save money on preventive maintenance costs but will cost you more in the long run with expensive repairs, decreased productivity, and unplanned downtime. Reactive maintenance is not the best long-term approach for any business if you can avoid it.

What Are the Advantages of Proactive Maintenance?

Proactive maintenance measures may have an upfront cost, but they will significantly reduce the likelihood of a total breakdown. Not to mention, identifying and addressing issues early on will help you to avoid costly emergency repairs. Routine maintenance, such as regular inspections, circuit breaker testing, and heat studies, will also extend the life of your equipment. The experts at Ridgeline Electrical Industries will help you prevent outages from occurring, but we can certainly step in and make appropriate electrical repairs if they do happen.
