In order to have an effective electrical preventive maintenance program, three things need to be considered by a company:
1. Personnel Safety- If there is an unexpected equipment failure, will my employees be put in danger? How can I better protect them in the event of a catastrophic failure?
2. Equipment Loss- Is the electrical equipment installed at your facility complex or so unique that if repairs or replacement is required the cost would be detrimental to the budget?
3. Production Economics- Will breakdowns or replacements of failed electrical equipment require an extensive downtime? How much will my company lose per hour should we have an unexpected shutdown?
By budgeting and scheduling regularly planned De-Energized shutdowns, this will allow companies to become proactive instead of reactive and extend the life of their electrical components while also keeping employees safe.

Breaker Testing and maintenance are critical, especially when caring for aging electrical systems. Testing breakers is like an annual physical. It allows us to track trends in the breaker’s performance. This allows Henderson to help you know when it’s the right time to replace underperforming or unsafe breakers, mitigating unscheduled outages of key equipment or electrical injury due to breakers not performing properly. It is important to maintain the quality of your breakers in order for your facility to run smoothly and safely, all while extending the life and performance of the breakers.
Henderson Services knows just how expensive and valuable your electrical transformers are to your facility. We provide quality diagnostics and monitoring of your power transformers. For transformer maintenance, we will schedule regular sampling and testing of every facet of the transformer.
Regular, professional cleaning of electrical equipment ensures the reliability, safety, and longevity of various electrical devices and systems. Regular cleaning maintenance removes dust, dirt, and debris that can accumulate on surfaces, fans, and components, which can hinder proper heat dissipation and lead to overheating. Exercising electrical equipment, such as switches and circuit breakers, involves activating them to prevent corrosion and maintain their operational efficiency. These maintenance practices not only prevent potential electrical hazards and equipment failures but also optimize the overall performance and energy efficiency of the systems. By mitigating the risks of malfunctions and minimizing downtime, cleaning and exercising electrical equipment services contribute significantly to the smooth operation of industries, businesses, and households, promoting both safety and cost-effectiveness.
