How to Prevent UPS System Problems

UPS systems degrade over time. So, if you have been using your unit for quite some time, you have to ensure they are regularly checked. Fans, contactors and filters should be regularly cleaned to avoid dust and dirt build-up. By doing so, your fans can last up to ten years and filters can continuously promote good airflow.

Additionally, batteries should be checked semi-annually to ensure they’re functioning in their prime. This should include testing for conductivity or impedance, and performance evaluation as well. This way, you can rest assured that the system will function as it is designed to. UPS connections should be annually inspected by a professional to ensure they’re in the right placements. Furthermore, simple components yet powerful ones such as capacitors should be replaced every five to seven years. This is due to their function of filtering and smoothing out voltage fluctuations which are essentially the most damaging.
