The Power Electric & Mechanical Contractor’s Preventative Maintenance program is a quarterly inspection program. Unlike other companies who have a silver, gold or platinum maintenance plans where they inspect or service different components of your system on a bi-annual basis depending upon the service plan you choose, we offer just one COMPLETELY COMPREHENSIVE maintenance plan performed on a quarterly basis. That’s because we believe in inspecting and servicing ALL the components within your system to keep YOUR SYSTEM running at its best possible performance level within the constraints of its operational life AND at a very competitive cost too!

This quarterly maintenance may include some or all of the points listed below as each system is different on each building. That’s why our maintenance plans are customized to MATCH your system (not all systems are alike yet they can be very similar).
