Power matters. Electricity has become the lifeblood of the modern world, powering everything from our lights and devices to full-blown security systems.

So, what happens when you rely on electricity for all matters of your business, and the power goes out? If you’re preparing for an important assembly for your pupils. Or your residents can no longer rely on devices meant to help them remain independent?

Obviously, you call your electrical contractor, and— in many cases, you wait. And wait. And wait. Clients come, see the store closed, and leave. Pupils and lecturer alike fumble to their places, attempting to work with natural light. Residents struggle to work with manual doors in order to mingle with other residents in their facility. Families come to tour the facility only to find the power out.

You may never hear from those lost customers, the disappointed lecturer, or the touring families again because of a poor impression.

Prompt Detailed Attention for our Clients

Now, imagine you work with AEI and your power goes out. We pride ourselves on prompt, detailed attention to all of our clients’ needs. Long waits are a thing of the past when you work with a contractor you can rely on. Your safety and security are our top priority, and we want to make sure you don’t lose any business over an inconvenience.

Play it safe

Poor lighting is a safety hazard for all ages. Perhaps your stock room doesn’t have any windows, and the lights blow with an employee on the ladder. Or pupils are meandering into an auditorium with poor lighting, trying their best not to trip over one another or miss a step.

The Work Health and Safety Regulation of 2011 requires that lighting in the work place be attentive to health and safety matters, in order to minimize the possibility of an accident occurring.

In Aged Care Facilities, the need for proper lighting is even more evident. Many residents in the facilities care may suffer from poor eyesight. Without proper lighting, they may miss other measures meant to help protect them, such as bright strips along stairs.

And these are just the lights! Power outages are a major concern for business, campuses, and aged care facilities alike. That’s why when you need repairs, you need them fast.

Be Security Minded and Aware

Homes, campuses, businesses, aged-care facilities…all of these share one firm need: security. So, what happens when your power isn’t up to par? Security systems of all forms — aside from the furry, four-legged, best friend kind— require power to work. If your electrical systems are acting finicky, they could cause your security alarm to glitch. Anything from false alarms to no alarms compromises the safety of your family, clients, pupils, or residents.

When safety and security are at risk, you need a company you can rely on. The longer your systems are down, the more likely someone will take advantage. We need to nip that problem before it grows.

Make a Power Play

Busted bulbs and fried fuses can be anything from an inconvenience to a cause for immediate shutdown, pending the severity of your power problems.

If the lights or other necessary electrical systems such as registers or automatic door stop working, you may find yourself closing down until your contractor can arrive to make repairs. So what happens when a potential customer walks up and sees the shop closed despite business hours posted? Or a potential resident’s family comes to tour your aged care facility, but can’t get the door to open?

Don’t lose out on business because of your electricity issues. Malfunctioning and nonfunctioning equipment leave bad impressions all around. The same can be said for poor lighting or the occasional burnt out bulb. Businesses, schools, and aged care facilities often rely on prompt service so that they can get back to business as usual.

Presentation Matters

Poorly lit stores, flickering lights, or busted bulbs all lead to a poor impression of your business. No one wants to stay in a facility they can’t even see! Safety and Security are major concerns in power outage situations, but so is presentation.

In order to draw in more clients, pupils, or residents, you need to have your best foot forwards at all times. Emergency lighting can help mitigate the damage in a power loss situation, but why risk the loss in profits? Having an electrical contractor known for prompt responses is paramount in getting your power up and running again.
