Electrical equipment failures account for millions of dollars in damage and lost business revenue every year. Why? The failure to implement a preventative maintenance program.

As electrical infrastructure ages, more problems occur and begin to steamroll. It’s critical to update infrastructure rather than apply ineffective patches time and time again.

Prevent close to 70% of electrical equipment failures.

Simply performing routine maintenance can prevent about two-thirds of electrical equipment failures. Components and systems that don’t undergo scheduled preventative maintenance are 3X more likely to fail.

Preventative maintenance is much more cost effective than repair costs, plus they can be done on your schedule, rather than in a crisis situation during your busy season.  Custom Electric’s service department is specifically designed to accommodate clients of all sizes and industries, including those in the residential and commercial sectors.

We have 15 full time service technicians who operate fully stocked service vehicles along with an experienced Service Manager, Service Coordinator, and Estimator. This gives our team the flexibility needed to be able to quickly respond to any service call.
