    Preserving Your Emergency Standby Power Generator Asset After Your Tenant Moves Out

    December 23, 2015

    Tenants come and go, but a building and its mechanicals remain. And as a property manager, you need to ensure your building is ready for the next tenant. If your tenant was responsible for the maintenance of the emergency standby power generator, it should be left in good working order upon moving out. If it is not in as good a condition as when they moved in, identifying and completing any deferred maintenance is an important and potentially costly step, which you should pro-actively manage. Once they're gone, it's up to you to keep it a viable asset until a new tenant moves in, and Electro-Motion can help.

    Although it seems counter-intuitive to maintain an asset in a vacant building, please remember that equipment like an emergency generator and automatic transfer switch (the two components on any emergency standby power system) can deteriorate rapidly if left neglected for an extended period of time - which can lead to expensive replacement costs much sooner in the equipment's life cycle than if it was on a regular preventive maintenance schedule. An emergency standby power system in working order may be an asset a prospective tenant deems essential, and you definitely don't want to neglect a potential selling point.

    Electro-Motion can offer you a flexible program to address deferred maintenance and to maintain your emergency standby power equipment at as minimal a cost as possible, giving you piece of mind that your asset is in proper working condition while saving money in the long run.
