Why Commercial Electrical Maintenance Is Important

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Electricity is an integral part of our daily lives, but we often forget how dangerous it can be. The electrical circuit, and all electrical appliances, are prone to wear and tear with time. They require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure that they are functioning optimally.

This is especially true if you own a commercial property. As a business owner, the onus is on you to ensure that your building complies with the Florida Electrical Code and adheres to an annual commercial electrical maintenance schedule. This is non-negotiable in order to ensure the safety of the property and anyone entering the building.

The Importance Of Commercial Electrical Maintenance

Electrical maintenance is not something to be neglected, especially if you own a commercial property. The main reasons for annual commercial electrical maintenance include:

  • Safety
  • Electrical equipment reliability
  • Prevention of major electrical breakdowns
  • Prevention of business down-time
  • Prevention of excess electrical bills


Electricity is part of our everyday lives, but it is still a very dangerous commodity. Annual electrical inspections and maintenance are vital to keeping both the building and the people in the building (employees, customers, and tenants) safe from electrocution, injury, or fire.

Failing to maintain an annual electrical maintenance schedule could result in litigation suits if someone is injured on the property. Insurance companies may also refuse financial cover, should fire damage be proven to be a result of an electrical issue that went unchecked.

Electrical Equipment Reliability

Electrical equipment and machinery need regular maintenance to ensure they function optimally. To prevent equipment failure or mishaps, and to extend their lifespan, all electrical equipment needs to be maintained as per manufacturers’ recommendations.

Prevention Of Major Electrical Breakdowns

Regular maintenance of all electrical equipment ensures that small issues are identified before they become large, expensive problems. Electrical technicians are trained to identify and repair even the smallest problems, before they become critical, often very costly issues.

Prevention Of Business Down-Time

Time is money, and no business can financially afford unexpected downtime. Regular electrical maintenance of the electrical circuit, appliances, equipment, and machinery will ensure they remain reliable and that business is not disrupted.

Prevention Of Excess Electrical Bills

Inefficient or faulty machinery, equipment, and appliances place excess strain on the electrical circuit, often resulting in abnormally high electrical bills. Regular electrical maintenance may cost a bit upfront but will prevent these unnecessary overhead expenses.

What Does Commercial Electrical Maintenance Include?

Commercial electrical maintenance is very specialized, and must only be carried out by licensed and insured electrical technicians. The annual electrical inspection and maintenance will ensure that the building complies with Florida’s Electrical Code and will include:

  • Lighting. All lights and light fittings will be inspected, including indoor lighting, outdoor lighting, and all signage with lighting.
  • Electrical machinery and appliances
  • Surge protectors
  • All generators and UPS
  • Pneumatics and hydraulics
  • Transformers
  • Circuit breakers/main electrical panel
  • Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GCFI)
  • All wiring, switches, and plugs, including inspection for signs of corrosion and broken or missing covers
  • Motor controls
  • Voltage regulators
  • Security systems, including alarms and motion detectors.
