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

I hired Barneys ro install ceiling fans, install a shower light, and move some plugs around during a remodel. The whole process was easy and he and his cree. were all very professional. They were in and out in a few hours and explained the whole process to me as needed.
