Infrared Electrical Inspection

infrared electrical inspectionInfrared electrical inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components. Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat (caused by increased resistance) so that problems can be corrected before a component fails, causing damage to the componentor creates a safety hazard / fire risk. Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration. This is why your insurance company may have asked for an electrical infrared inspection, to find and prevent problems before they cause damage to your personnel, equipment and facility.

Even if switches, outlets or walls don’t feel warm there my be a short or other issue that could potentially flare up and start a fire. Some common issues we’ve detected with our infrared scanning include:
Loose/deteriorated connections

  • Overloads
  • Open circuits
  • Unbalanced loads
  • Inductive heating
  • Harmonics
  • Defective equipment

In some cases theses issues do not cause a fire but can result in expensive repairs and losing electricity in part or all of your home for an extended amount of time. Benefits of finding and repairing these issues include:

  • Increase equipment life
  • No service interruption during inspection
  • Lower repair costs
  • Prevent catastrophic failures
  • Lower insurance premiums due to reduced losses
  • Prevent extended periods of no electricity

Barney previously replaced our very worn out electric panel and was efficient and professional. He also came out on short notice Christmas Eve morning to repair an issue that left us without power in a portion of the kitchen -- just in time to welcome our company. Barney is quick to respond, very knowledgeable and performs quality work. We will continue to use Barney for our future electrical work.

Recently moved into a new and house and needed some plugs moved on a couple of walls. Did a search and liked the reviews I found on Barney’s. Called and to my surprise Barney actually answered. He said he was on vacation and would have one of his guys give me a call. That happened and we set an appointment. To my surprise again got a call from his guy saying he had an opening a day earlier and wanted to know if he could come by. It didn’t work for me but on the original ally scheduled date there were 2 guys at my door 15 minutes early. Polite, courteous, and professional. Very reasonable prices as well. Highly recommend. I’ll call them first for all my future electrical needs.

Steve from Barney's was just here for a service call. Had a high pitch noise that I thought was from a light on the patio. After searching he pointed to my exercise bike. I turned it off and the noise stopped. Needless to say I felt about 2 inches tall!! He charged zero. Merry Christmas!! Highly recommend Steve.
