Don’t Get Caught Cold This Winter

Cold winters ramp up the pressure on our power supplies.

There’s less generation from renewable sources. Snow, ice and high winds fell trees that knock out vital infrastructure. Then there’s the heightened risk of flooding from heavy rainfall or when the snow melts.

All this adds up to an increased likelihood of blackouts and other troublesome power problems. Could this send your crucial IT equipment and electrical devices into a deep freeze of downtime?

That’s why uninterruptible power supplies are your ultimate insurance. They offer invaluable emergency backup that keeps you up and running when disaster strikes.

But a UPS suffers from wear and tear like any other piece of machinery. Faults happen and parts can fail. UPS batteries in particular don’t work well when the temperatures plummet.

Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Preventive UPS maintenance is the proven way to reduce the risk of your UPS system getting caught cold during any icy snap.

A certified engineer regularly servicing your UPS will identify any components (including batteries, capacitors or fans) that are approaching their end of service life and might need replacing.

They’ll also update firmware and carry out performance tweaks.

All in all, robust UPS maintenance guarantees you:

  • Minimal downtime as your UPS is fully-functional when you need it most
  • Improved energy efficiency which reduces waste and cuts electricity costs
  • Better budgeting as proactively replacing components before they break costs less than fixing unexpected failures
