1. System Performance

The first step in determining which UPS product is best suited for your home is to conduct an in-depth analysis of a particular UPS system features, topology and power protection performance.

2. Runtime

We can calculate your runtime at Handyman Homes based on the UPS you are going to be using and what the load is.

3. Reliability

Basically means that the UPS supplies to the loads at a pre-determined voltage quality. With technology today we can achieve a very high degree of reliability.

4. Maintenance

Optimising energy efficiency, reducing utility bills, prevention of downtime, no emergency call outs for power failure, asset appreciation and future budget planning.
