No matter what kind of business you own, it is a near certainty that you rely on electricity each and every day to operate it. Electricity is one of those modern-day conveniences that we take for granted but rest assured: take it away and most of us would be lost. That said, it is important to keep your business’s electrical system in peak operating condition. Armstrong Plumbing, Air & Electric has helped our commercial partners keep their systems running for nearly 90 years and we realize just how important keeping the juice on is to you and your business.


Your electrical system is crucial to your business operation, just as crucial as making sure it is 100 percent safe. A faulty electrical system can potentially lead to a fire hazard, causing damage to property and endangerment to your employees and customers. With that in mind, here are some important reasons why your electrical system should be properly maintained:

  1. Safety. Your biggest responsibility as a business owner is making sure your property is safe for your employees and customers. No matter the size of the electrical system or how small a problem is, neglecting it can lead to bigger, life-threatening issues that you may be liable for as the owner.
  2. Prevent Major Problems. Small problems have a way of turning into bigger ones rather quickly. Proper maintenance of the wiring, outlets, switches, machines and appliances that comprise your system can sniff out these issues before they become emergencies. 
  3. Save Money On Utility Bills. An inefficient or improperly operating electrical appliance can use more energy than it should, so keeping them in good shape can help reduce overhead costs to your business.
  4. Save Money On Repairs. Keeping your system maintained will prolong its lifespan, reduce the number of repairs and increase the efficiency of electrical appliances and machinery.
  5. Ensures Reliability. As a business owner, you need to know that when you flip the light switch, the lights will come on… every time. Regular electrical maintenance will help your system become and stay reliable.
  6. Prevent Stoppages. No business owner wants to shut its doors or stop operations for any reason. Keeping your electrical system maintained will help ensure you don’t have to do so because of an unforeseen electrical issue.
