Why should you use (logo here Strugnell Electric) Thermal Imaging Inspection Services ?

  • Insurance inspections, create a report for insurance purposes and provide a clearance letter.
  • aluminum wiring inspections and reporting hot spot or problematic circuit detection.
  • Strugnell Electric has qualified Licensed Electricians specially trained and certified to understand and properly read the Infrared Images and document the results accurately.
  • Strugnell Electric uses the latest Thermal Imaging Camera, which are tested and calibrated on a regular basis and all software with the latest technology available.

While keeping the above points in mind, consider the accuracy of thermal scanners. These scanners use temperature sensors and detect fluctuations not visible to the human eye. When a fuse overheats, it emits heat, not light, so we can’t see it. However, that doesn’t mean the problem isn’t present or doesn’t exist, it simply means that it is not visible to the human eye. Instead of waiting for the  fuse to get red hot, or blow-out,  or perhaps even burn-out the fuse-holder or even melt the switches blades let us help you mitigate this with a simple infrared scan and allow us to rectify these issues and others before they become reality or a even serious problem.

Our team of experts save all scanned images of the infrared inspection, documented and noted for all necessary repairs and reports necessary for insurance purposes.. This technology is very helpful in electrical preventative maintenance, and aids homeowners and businesses to continue to run smoothly as repairs happen in real-time.

Our scanning technology detects heat fluctuations not visible to the human eye. When a fuse overheats, it emits heat, not light, so we can’t see it. However, that doesn’t mean the problem isn’t present or doesn’t exist, it simply means that it is not visible to the human eye. Instead of waiting for a system failure or perhaps burn-out a fuse-holder, or  melt the switch blades let us help you mitigate this with a simple infrared scan, identify the issues and repair the system before a costly failure is realized.

Our team of experts save all scanned images of the infrared inspection on a special digital card, therefore keeping the issue well documented and noted for all necessary repairs. This technology is very helpful in electrical preventative maintenance, and aids homeowners and businesses to continue to run smoothly as repairs happen in real-time.

Frequently Asked Questions :
  • What are Infrared Electrical Inspections?

An Infrared Electrical Inspection is another term used for Infrared Thermal Scanning Services or Thermography. It will detect electrical issues by using heat indicators to determine any hot spots, faulty wiring, hot fuses, overheated cables, failing Breakers and numerous other electrical issues which can’t be seen but may be present and seen with a Thermal Scan at the time of the infrared inspection.

  • What is Thermal Imaging Analysis?

Thermal Imaging analysis is a complete breakdown of the assessment done by our Electrical Thermographic Expert. It provides both a standard image and an Infrared image of electrical equipment. Both pictures allow us to point out and identify where the heat is being generated allowing us to pinpoint the exact location of the existing problem.

Emergency systems such as smoke detectors and sprinklers have their unique place and come into play only once there is a problem. Thermal Scans and the use of thermography can alert you well before a situation arises and help you get ahead of any potential electrical hazard and a repair can be initiated.

  • How much does Thermal Imaging cost?

  The costs associated with a thermal scan are relative to the amount of electrical equipment inspected.   In simple form the larger and the more complex equipment there is the more the cost of Infrared imaging will be as we will spend more time in a larger building than others. This is all relative to the amount of time that we need to conduct the thermal Scan of all relevant electrical equipment as well as the amount of time required to compile a thorough report for the infrared scan and details.
