Prevent Electrical Overloads
Today’s electrical systems are complex, making it difficult to detect many trouble areas which can very often result in electrical failures and costly repairs, not to mention fires and employee safety. Even a small electrical problems can have extreme consequences, I’ve seen this far too many times. In electrical faults, the energy is spent generating heat and when left unchecked the heat will continue to rise to the point where the connections start to melt and leading to sparks and then fire.
Identify Unsafe Areas Which May Result In Electrical Failures
Safe Imaging’s Infrared Thermal Inspections are used to identify all unsafe electrical issues in Commercial, Facility, Industrial and Residential Buildings. All unsafe electrical faults can be quickly and safely identified, making it easy to locate and repair, resulting in significant lowering risks to property and life.
Many insurance companies are now taking this into consideration and are requiring regular Thermal Inspections be done to the insured property. Many Insurance providers are now offering premium discounts when having a thermal inspection done by a Licensed Master Electrician and with a Level 2 Advanced Thermal Certification.
