Infrared Inspections by a Commercial Electrician

As a business owner, even the smallest complication can create a snare in your daily operations. While not all of these complications can be addressed ahead of time, some can and the more you're able to act preventatively, the better you can serve your customers. Because we all know, the best defense is a good offense.

Infrared inspections can give you that strong offense you need. A skilled electrician can perform such an inspection on your electrical system and keep things working in quality condition.

Why are infrared inspections important?

One of the most common reasons for electrical problems is overheating. Overheating can be caused by poor connections, a breakdown in the wire insulation, and an overly powerful current. If left untreated, overheating can be extremely serious and cause injuries and even death.

Infrared inspections work to combat this problem of overheating by pinpointing signs of it when it is still in the early stages. What most inspectors are unable to detect is made visible by thermal imaging.

In order to perform an infrared inspection, an electrician first removes the covers of your electrical system and will then use the infrared camera to spot problems or abnormalities. After determining what is causing these problems, the electrician can then provide you with the most effective solution.

While unfortunate, abnormal heating patterns are common in electrical systems. These patterns can lead to a more serious chain of events that can impact the safety and operative capacity of your building if not taken care of.
