Thermal imaging, also called infrared or IR imaging, can have a host of benefits for commercial properties:

  1. Savings. The biggest benefit to having IR imaging done is that every $1 spent on electrical preventative maintenance can save you $4 down the road in unforeseen failures of your electrical distribution system.
  2. Convenience. IR imaging requires zero downtime for your facility. IR relies on load being present; that is to say that the equipment needs to be running in order to get a proper image.
  3. Peace of mind. You’ll be able to continue production knowing that your system can handle the demands of your facility.

  • Worn or broken breakers
  • Loose connections in your electrical panel
  • Loose connections in your electrical distribution system
  • Loose connections in plug and switch outlets
  • Worn or obsolete electrical equipment
  • Worn motor bearings
  • Overloaded circuits
  • Undersized breakers
  • Worn out or weak fuses
  • Wrong equipment used

Our certified electricians will also perform a visual inspections on all electrical equipment for any visible damage, code infractions, or other such issues.

Once the Thermal Imaging is complete, a report will be generated at our office and will include pictures and IR images, as well as detailed information on your equipment. You will also receive a list of the repairs made on the specific pieces of equipment with before-and-after pictures. We will then deliver it to you and go over the information within the report in detail.
