Preventative Maintenance

Some easy maintenance ideas include:

Older parking lot lighting such as metal halide, incandescent, florescent, and high pressure sodium have been around for years. The ballast, and lamps for these fixtures go bad from time to time. Property owners, landlords, and tenants loose track of these fixtures as they go out. Before you know it there are more fixtures than acceptable are out and it poses a safety issues for employees and pedestrians. MARS Electric can fix, and or replace these fixtures, or replace them with the newest LED lighting fixtures. LED is the smartest way to go with any new or existing lighting plans. The LED lighting produce a brighter, whiter light, and cost about 1/4 the price of the older types of light to run. There are no serviceable components to LED lighting making them have no maintenance. MARS Electric has the lifts to access most any indoor warehouse, factory, or outdoor parking lot lighting fixtures. We also have trenching, backfill, and tamping equipment to install new outdoor lighting for your home or business.

If you have a portable generator to use in the event of a power loss you should be pulling the generator outside and stating it every few weeks to make sure it will start in your time of need. Allow it to run for a few minutes to charge the battery and keep every thing inside the motor lubed up. Also gas has a shelf life of a few weeks so its good to burn it out of your tank. Also you can add a fuel additive to prolong the fuel life. Never run a generator inside your home or garage. Co2 is colorless and odorless and can kill you. A Co2 detector can easily be installed by MARS Electric your home to protect your family. For any of your generator motor repair issues you can contact Nick at The Lawn Barn at 910 Wouldbourn Road in Langhorne, Pa. 215-757-3850.
