Letting your electrical appliances fall into a defective and compromised state is not only dangerous but it is ultimately more costly to replace than it would be to simply maintain and repair. In the very worst cases faulty electrics can lead to a loss of life. In five years* there were two such cases at the MBC where two men unfortunately lost their lives through electrical equipment that had been left to get in to a dangerous state.
The latter of the two cases involved an electrical contractor who was looking at a faulty air conditioning unit which was still, sadly, running a live current. The terrible cases at the MBC not only resulted in the unnecessary loss of two human lives but also cost the company £400,000 in fines, a tarnished image and criminal convictions. All of which could have easily been avoided.
