Before an electrical element burns up, it heats up. Infrared thermography is used to perform inspections on electrical equipment because excess heat is usually the first sign of trouble on electrical (or mechanical) device.
Infrared electrical inspections find hot spots triggered by defective connections and poorly made 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 either damage to the component, creating safety hazards for those using or inhabiting a certain residence or item, and productivity loss.
Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding ‘hot’ connections in the early stages of collapse. Did your home or businesses’ insurance company ask you for an electrical infrared inspection?
An infrared inspection in Reno does not cost a fortune, and is implemented to find and prevent problems before they cause damage to your personnel, equipment, facility, home, or office.
An infrared inspection typically takes 4 – 6 hours, and will most likely be performed in the early hours of the morning, or late evening, to compare temperature differences they may have been found. The inside and outside of the property must both be scanned for a thorough and detailed report.
