An Uninterruptible Power Supply needs attention and servicing like any major appliance or vehicle. They contain consumables which deteriorate over time, the principal ones in a UPS being capacitors, fans and of course batteries.
Components have a design life and it’s important that a UPS is serviced regularly and inspections are made as to how it is performing. An engineer will make recommendations to replace components in advance to allow you to budget, or recommend immediate replacement to ensure continued support of your critical load.
