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.
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.
