Think of all the fire systems that keep your building protected from fire as a kind of delicate ecosystem. Each component works seamlessly together to detect and extinguish fires, alerting building occupants when evacuation is required. When one system isn’t working, an entire building could be at risk. But, to keep these systems operating and running takes a lot of maintenance and attention. Required fire system inspections can cost a bit, but there are a couple of ways your business can save money while maintaining a functional fire protection system. Read on to learn more!
If you can bundle services with your fire protection company, you’ll likely get better pricing as a whole. The reason you’d save money is because it can save the company money, and those savings can then be passed onto you. Technicians at Fireline are cross-trained, which means one technician can do the job of two on various systems. Because of this, your company can avoid additional costs by reducing labor for other divisions. You could also sync up your fire protection system inspections if you’re working with one company for all services. This can save money by resulting in fewer disruptions and downtime in addition to any extra labor costs for customers that require a dedicated escort.
Keep Up with Maintenance to Avoid Expensive Repairs
The cost for regular annual fire sprinkler systems can range anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 a year. A new fire sprinkler system can cost a lot more. The point is: Regular maintenance is a real way to save money on inspections in the long run. Fire alarm systems are another example. Fire alarm systems typically require annual and semi-annual testing from professionals, but your facilities manager should conduct consistent visual inspections weekly or monthly. Something as easy as dead batteries in a control panel can turn into a service call, which can cost more than the price of replacement batteries. Your fire protection company can help put your systems on the right inspection schedule. Just make sure you keep up with inspections every year or when required to avoid any costly and preventable repairs.
