UPS Site Surveys and Health Checks Available Nationwide at Short Notice without a Contract

A UPS is permanently connected to the mains and powers essential load equipment 24 hours per day, 365 days per year for its entire lifetime. Unnecessary losses incurred by an incorrectly sized or aged UPS can cost the user thousands in wasted electricity.

A site survey of the current UPS loading along with associated electrical infrastructure will highlight where users could make improvements to the general operation of their system.

A site survey or efficiency audit can be completed onsite by an engineer without interruption or risk to the critical load.  A detailed report is then issued to the user for consideration or further discussion.

When planning the electrical installation for a large project or data room installation, it is crucial that communications between the various contractors and the customer are unhindered by self-interest; the prime motive has to be the interests of the client.

Installing an emergency power supply system into an existing or new building can call for many specialised skills, which are not always available through a conventional electrical contractor. Where a Generator and UPS system are being installed, many technical considerations have to be well thought through and planned, for example:


  • Where can the switchgear be placed for maximum benefit?
  • What sort of cooling is required to maintain maximum efficiency and prolong battery life?
  • Where should the UPS be sited to maximise space?
  • What sort of access is required for maintenance?
  • What if any exhaust fume extraction is need for the generator?
  • What are the best type of data coms for both the generator and UPS
  • What type of UPS is best suited to run with an existing generator?

We provide a wide range of on-site tests and surveys that analyse any power problems you may have and determine the best power protection solution for your organisation. Our expert engineers carry out inspections of electrical wiring and collect device data including power usage, load sizing, mains output, and harmonics. We’ll then produce an in-depth report full of actionable recommendations.

For locations with a UPS already installed, our site surveys provide essential advice on optimising your system. They help determine whether components such as batteries, capacitors, and fans need replacement. And if you’re planning to expand, our power surveys can assist with UPS sizing and efficiency.

While for new UPS installations, a site survey will cover key areas such as logistics, electrical installation, commissioning, training, and ongoing UPS maintenance.

UPS Maintenance Health Check

An uninterruptible power supply is a crucial piece of equipment. It’s essential that you can rely on it to provide critical power protection at all times. But wear and tear over time is inevitable, and without regular check-ups a UPS’s performance can easily become compromised, increasing the likelihood of failure and downtime.Our specialist UPS Health Checks give you the peace of mind that your units are running at peak performance and optimum efficiency.


What’s Included In A UPS Health Check?

  •  Visual test: thorough inspection of the installed UPS system / battery set
  • Physical tests: review of all electrical connections. 
  • Mechanical tests: functional checks including recording electrical measurements and the system’s operational state
  • Environmental tests: check the surroundings for possible problems such as dust or humidity
  • Download and comprehensive review of the UPS history logs
  • Firmware upgrades available.
  • Full reporting of any faults found during the PMV
  • Our recommendations to improve operational reliability

Aston Berkeley
{I would recommend these guys as they handled the servicing and replacement of batteries in our two units that had been neglected for years very efficiently and effectively. Will be getting them back next year for the annual servicing now we are back in shape.

{With UPS Power Services, we've recently just completed a project to install a UPS solution that covers our entire IT infrastructure. The team have been fantastic from the initial scoping/quotation phase, through to installation and then with any after sales support. I honestly couldn't ask for better service, and I would highly recommend them!
{UPS Power Services have extended the life of our UPS by providing maintenance when APC would not. Bought new batteries from them at a reasonable price which they installed and took away the old ones. Have also had our first annual service check which gave a detailed report on the UPS. Both employees who have been to our offices have been polite and carried out the work cleanly leaving everything as it should be. Only in our first year with them but from our current dealings seem an honest company wishing to give good service with satisfied customers.
IT Manager

This included an initial site audit, concept design options, followed by orderly shutdown, delivery and commissioning of the new system. This involved new switchgear, a standby diesel generator and a parallel UPS system all on a live datacentre site

{UPS Power Services supplied our business with a temporary UPS when our ageing old system broke down, the staff attended site to asses the type and size of UPS required with in 4 hrs of my 1st call to them. they then installed the temp system so that we was safe with our back up procedures. We was then quoted for a new system to replace our broken system. Through out the whole procedure UPS POWER SERVICES portrayed them selves in an excellent professional manner from start to finish of the project. I would definitely recommend them.
{Leon - Thank you for last week. It is really truly a work of art. The job hasn’t been fed up the ladder (Department/Estates) yet but I can say we are extremely grateful from the professional job received. I’ll be back in touch very soon. Wayne - Feedback sums it up nicely, like wise I’m very grateful for the work that you put into this project, especially the meticulous planning with other contractors to ensure it all went smoothly.
