What Is Included In Uninterruptible Power Supply Maintenance Cover

Commonly there are three different levels of uninterruptible power supply maintenance cover contracts available.

Normally an annual service is the best way to check on the condition of your UPS power supply. This usually includes an engineer carrying out tests on the fans, filters and DC capacitors.

Multiple service visits can also be added if required and companies can even tailor-make a bespoke level of cover if more rapid response times are needed. More than one visit a year can prove invaluable as the engineer can spot a weakness in the system and replace parts which ensure the UPS power is always available when you need it.

A ‘basic’ UPS power device maintenance contract is the most popular type of contract. This is usually an upgrade or extension of the standard manufacturer’s warranty. It provides a basic agreement of 24 hours a day, seven days a week telephone support and a four to six hour on site response to emergency call-outs depending on location.


It also includes one or two preventative maintenance visits per annum during normal working hours. All parts are included if the unit is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

All parts are included if the unit is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty otherwise both parts and labour are charged at the standard schedule of rates excluding batteries, fans and filters.

The second type of uninterruptible power supply maintenance contract is ‘corrective’. This is an out of warranty contract that provides all the features of a basic agreement but also includes travel and labour costs for any call outs additional to the standard preventative visit. Parts are chargeable as required unless covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Again, this excludes batteries, fans and filters.

Then there is the ‘extensive’ UPS power supply maintenance programme that includes all the features of a ‘corrective’ agreement but also includes any parts required for any repair works carried out for the duration of the contract. Once more, this does excludes batteries, fans and filters.

Make sure your electrician is always NEICEIC approved. This means they have the skills and experience to carry out all minor or major electrical works including installations and site surveys.

Site surveys are for customers that have already decided what UPS power supply they require for their application but would also like a UPS installation carried out.

The point of a site survey is to provide the customer with an accurate quotation for labour and materials and a scope of works for the UPS installation as well any other electrical works related to the UPS that the customer requires.

A site survey is essential prior to installation to ensure that there are no unexpected costs incurred by the customer once the UPS installation commences.

Site surveys are usually free of charge within normal working hours by most companies. These also ensure that there are no hidden surprises or unexpected costs during any stage of your power protection, selection, delivery or installation.

Oven Safety In The Home

Oven safety in the home


Kate Owen

Oven safety and cooker safety are vitally important for every family and every home, but especially if you have children in your household. Modern ovens and cookers offer a range of features to keep your family safe despite the high temperatures and fuel used to power the appliances.

Stop gas leakages:

Always ensure your gas appliance is fitted by a certified gas safety registered engineer. It is not worth risking the lives of your family by saving a couple of pounds and doing a DIY job.


Flame safety device (FSD) – this is used in gas cookers to cut out the flow of gas in the event of the flame being extinguished. This prevents the possibility of a gas leak which can be incredibly dangerous – especially if you ignite the hobs later on. If you live in a multiple occupancy building such as an apartment block it is a legal requirement that you have an flame safety device on your cooker to protect other residents.

Prevent burns:

Double glass oven doors – oven safety extends to the heat of the appliance, and the heat it achieves during operation. Ovens with single glass panels in the door can become extremely hot when you’re cooking and as they are at floor level they are often located within easy reach of children and toddlers. Should your child touch the hot oven door they will get hurt. If your oven is placed somewhere your children have access to it is wise to invest in a model with double glass doors. This ensures the outer pane is kept cool and children are kept safe.

electric double oven has air cooled doors for extra peace of mind. A fan circulates cool air around the outside of the oven ensuring that the appliance and the surrounding furniture are kept cool while you are cooking.

Keep children out of the kitchen – if possible you should keep young children out of the kitchen when you are cooking as spillages and burns can easily take place. It only takes a second for curious hands to tug on a table cloth, electrical wire or pan handle and cause a serious accident. If your children are in the kitchen make sure any pan handles aren’t dangling over the side of the oven.

Hire an electrician:

You can’t just plug in an electric oven, they need to be hard-wired into the electricity supply, so make sure you get a qualified workman to do this.
