Reliable Thermal Imaging for Coffs Harbour Properties


Home and office services


Thermal imaging — Steve Arthur Electrical in Coffs Harbour

Thermal imaging is a method of improving visibility of objects in a dark environment by detecting the objects’ infrared radiation and creating an image based on that information.

In many cases, electrical equipment heats up in an unusual way before failing, as there is often a loss of control with the electrical charge. This makes pre-emptive thermal imaging checks a great way to help you identify panels, fuses or appliances that should be replaced before failing and possibly causing property damage.

Why Do Electricians Use Thermal Imaging?

There are a couple of reasons to use thermal imaging for your home or office. If you’re worried some of your appliances might be acting up, you’re noticing an odd amount of heat around your electrical appliances, or you want to be more energy efficient. Our electricians will make use of the latest thermal imaging equipment to inspect your appliances and to find any excess heat that is being created. We can even create reports and make suggestions based off our findings as to how you can improve the energy efficiency in your property.

Cost Savings

The benefit of thermal imaging is that potentially expensive electrical faults can often be avoided by early detection. A thorough survey will quickly reveal any abnormal component temperatures that are a sign of equipment failure.

Of course, it also enables you to improve your energy efficiency. Our electricians can locate inefficiencies and provide cost-effective solutions to improve.

The thermography report identifies the exact area of the fault, so no time is wasted using elimination processes.

Cost savings are made if the procedure is used as part of a regular preventative maintenance program. Unexpected breakdowns in all types of properties can be prevented well in advance of their becoming apparent. Repairs and/or maintenance can then be scheduled as required.

Thermal Imaging Applications

Some of the most practical reasons to use thermal imaging services include:

  • Identify potential equipment or component failure or irregularities in loading
  • Prevent fires & explosions
  • Check component integrity
  • Determine loading condition of equipment

Hard and soft copy reports, containing documentary evidence of survey results, are available with each survey, and maintenance personnel can plan repairs as necessary.
