Thermal Image Scans are CRUCIAL in:
In most cases insurers will request for you to get a Thermal Image Scan in order to confirm compliance of commercial type switchboards. In some cases proof of annual scans can reduce insurance premiums.
Overall scans ensure due diligence for building and tenancies, so in an event blame on building owners and managers can be reduced. Scans also show up hot points, to help with risk averse and are an important factor in electrical preventative maintenance.

Benefits Of Thermal Imaging Maintenance For Your Home or Business
Electrical thermal imaging can make an enormous difference for your business or home.
You can reduce the likelihood of electrical fires – especially in your switchboards. Electrical fires are particularly dangerous and not something to take lightly. Unlike regular fires, electrical fires take a fraction of a second to spark up and cause severe damage. You can combat the likelihood of this with switchboard thermal imaging to find any forming problems with your electrical connections that might start a fire in the future.
We can help you check for any loose connections to ensure your switchboards do their job, with a minimised risk of fire. You can quickly find loose connections or contactors to prevent your electrical switchboard gear from overheating. As mentioned before, electricity can cause severe heat in a flash. When you have loose connections or contacts, this heat can prove more problematic because the system is not set up correctly to help dissipate this heat properly.
You can rest easy, knowing you have the support of insurers because of the necessary compliance. Many insurers will require you to get a thermal image scan of your switchboard to make sure everything is up to standard. This requirement is especially true in the commercial or industrial sector. You may even potentially reduce the price of your premiums with proof of annual scans, which show that you do your due diligence to keep accidents at bay.
Getting ahead of any possible electrical damage can save you thousands in repairs and much more value in lost trading time. If you think your switchboard requires some work – or you haven’t had it checked in 12 months – it might be time to consider our team’s help.
Why Use a Thermal Imaging Service Over Other Forms of Maintenance
While there will always be multiple ways to approach a problem, there is often an optimal solution. Having the thermal imaging information at your finger tips means you can make more informed decisions regarding what electrical repairs you may need. Thermal imaging for electrical inspection is superior to more conventional methods of maintenance in a number of ways.
With thermal, we do not have to touch anything to investigate, and this approach keeps both our staff and property safe. It is essential to note that unless there is nothing wrong, we will always use thermal image testing in conjunction with other approaches to find the best solution. What thermal allows for is something that other conventional maintenance methods can’t provide.
We get to see what needs attention without opening or touching anything upfront. Simply reaching in and fiddling with connectors is a sure-fire way to cause more damage – whether to yourself or the property – which is where thermal makes such a substantial difference.
With thermal assistance, we get to show you the severity of the electrical faults and their locations. It’s hard to picture electrical damage or faults, especially if you do not have the necessary experience in the electrical industry. With the use of thermal imaging we help you better understand what remedial works are needed ahead of time.
The thermal imaging equipment allows you to get an immediate insight to your property or building inspection in real-time. We do not have to wait for slow machines or rendering programs or results from a different facility. Once we turn the scanning equipment on, we can immediately see everything we need to see in real-time, making our service and decision making far more efficient.
There are many good reasons to use thermal making it one of the most valuable tools for an electrician when investigating problems behind switchboards. Talk to us if you have any questions about our services or want to know a little bit more about how our equipment functions.
