Upgrading, changing, or replacing your facility’s Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. As experts in the industry, we’ve got some tips to share to help make your UPS replacement experience a successful one!
Tip #1: Plan Ahead
Arm yourself with knowledge when you are planning to replace your UPS. What does your facility need? Will other systems be replaced at the same time? Are there additional projects that need to be undertaken first? What is the available footprint inside the UPS Room? Knowing what your facility needs are and having a solid understanding of the reason for the UPS replacement will help you form a clear plan of action before undergoing your UPS replacement project.
Tip #2: Consider UPS Rental
If your business is scaling faster than predicted or you need a UPS upgrade sooner than planned, and if downtime is NOT an option then consider renting a UPS. This is a great option for those hoping to make use of OpEx budgets when CapEx budgets are unavailable as well. Renting a UPS allows you the flexibility to remove your old legacy UPS system and to try out a late model UPS system without the pressure of making a purchasing decision immediately. UPS rentals can also be helpful for events, short term high workloads, disaster recovery, or facility maintenance.
Tip #3: Hire Professionals
Trust the experts when replacing such a critical part of your business infrastructure. Data loss, downtime, or damage are some of the risks when a UPS replacement process goes wrong. When you hire the dedicated specialists here at CI Group, we handle the entire process for you; from the project planning, the decommission of your current system for you, to the installation of a rental unit (if needed) and the installation of the new permanent UPS System.
