Preventative Maintenance

Even the best designed and installed systems can fail over time. Scheduled equipment checks and preventative maintenance can help eliminate expensive emergency repairs and shutdowns. Make sure you’re doing all you can to avoid failures and the frustration of unplanned issues with preventative maintenance services from B&B Electric.


Preventative maintenance programs are all about saving you down time and the cost of emergent repairs for unplanned equipment failure. This type of service typically fall into two different categories; Predictive Maintenance and Shut Down Planning and Coordination.

Shutdown Planning and Coordination is a very time sensitive type of work.  When your machinery is down, so is your ability to service your customers and create profit.  B&B has an experienced team working in Shutdown Planning and Coordination, which leads to successful coordination of shutdowns that are within your time window and also allow time to get the necessary work complete.

Our Preventative Maintenance programs allows us to monitor the condition of in-service equipment periodically or continually.  This type of program is valued by many customers, because it reduces disruptions to their operations while saving them the cost of unplanned repairs.

There is nowhere that loss of power is more impactful than at a hospital. Hospitals are the life support system of a community in both times of crisis and by providing general healthcare needs.  Just like any other commercial or industrial facility, hospitals are at risk for power outages or electric issues if preventative maintenance actions are not taken. B&B Electric can help you provide assurance to patients and families, knowing they can trust on the equipment working to keep them healthy.

  • Why participate in preventative maintenance programs?

    The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) reports that the failure rate of electrical components is three times higher for systems without preventive maintenance programs.  B&B can help save you stress, time, and money with preventative maintenance programs!

  • How can preventative maintenance save my business money?

    Preventative Maintenance is cost-effective in several ways.  It is definitely cheaper to fix equipment before it fails!  You will also experience less unplanned outages.  Additionally, many Preventative Maintenance programs can help improve equipment efficiency and will reduce your utility bills.

  • Should I keep track of what work has been performed on my machinery?

    Yes!  A Preventative Maintenance program is also incredibly important because it helps you keep a clear and complete record of how your machinery is performing and what work has been completed.  Tracking machinery performance over time can help you identify potential issues before they become large problems.

  • What actually is IR Thermography and how does it work?

    Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to “see” and “measure” thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal energy is light in the range that is not visible to the human eye. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared radiation and provide precise, non-contact temperature measurement capabilities.  Since nearly everything creates heat before it fails, and this is where we have the ability to “catch”  a potential problem, making it possible to schedule for an outage and correct the problem.
