Infrared electrical inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and 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 damage to the component or creates a safety hazard / fire risk.
Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration. This is why your insurance company may have asked for an electrical infrared inspection, to find and prevent problems before they cause damage.
Even if switches, outlets, or walls do not feel warm there may be a short or other issue that could potentially flare up and start a fire.
Some common issues we have detected with our infrared scanning include:
In some cases, these issues do not cause a fire but can result in expensive repairs and losing electricity in part or all of your home for an extended amount of time.
Benefits of finding and repairing these issues include:
Increase equipment life
No service interruption during inspection
Lower repair costs
Prevent catastrophic failures
Lower insurance premiums due to reduced losses
Prevent extended periods of no electricity
