Infrared electrical inspections are completely safe, fast, non-invasive and very reliable. These particular inspections are non contact and can be performed at any time of the day without disturbing the occupants or shutting down the electrical supply to your home or business.
Nearly everything that transmits electricity will get very hot before it finally fails. A cost effective power management is critical to maintaining the reliability of the electrical system throughout your home or business before it causes a fire. A deficient connection between electrical components can result in resistance, which will manifest in an apparent temperature elevation when compared to similar types of connections under similar load conditions. Thermally scanning your electrical components allows me to quickly identify and map out electrical hot spots immediately. It's impossible to identify electrical issues by eye as a visual inspection of your electrical components will not identify hot spots like Infrared will. My infrared camera will immediately detect defective hot overloaded or undersized circuits, defective circuit breakers that are in need of immediate replacement, hot branch wiring and its connections, defective wall switches and outlets, as well as any loose overheating connections, especially with any aluminum wiring connections.
I will safely scan all electrical equipment in and around your home or business, looking for thermal patterns that indicate a heating anomaly. Most of your electrical connections will always appear as “Hotter” areas, but the more severe heating anomalies will be detected with infrared imaging and this fire safety issue will be brought to your attention immediately. I will then prepare a highly detailed infrared electrical report that will include all thermal and digital images in a side by side comparison format. Your report will detail the absolute temperature measurements, along with outlining the severity of the anomaly. Alongside these images, you will find my recommendations for correcting any dangerous situations.
An undetected electrical weakness in your home can lead to deadly building fires and a catastrophic failure of your electrical system. For the safety of you and your family, I recommend you have your entire electrical system thermally scanned on an annual basis.
This residential electrical panel (below) is absolutely fine, but the IR image (on the right) is detecting 3 hot spots. Only an experienced Thermographer will be able to properly interpret those three hot spots as normal temperatures for AFCI and GFCI breakers.
Now...we've got electrical issues
This hot spot was not visible until my IR camera detected the anomaly
