Infrared Electrical Survey
A great alternative to otherwise time-consuming and labour-intensive physical inspections of electrical systems, infrared electrical surveys are much faster and more effective at identifying faulty or overheating electrical components.
What’s more, infrared inspections are non-contact, allowing you to keep your systems in operation during the inspection.
You typically want to conduct an infrared electrical inspection once a year. They’re a non-intrusive and low-cost way of finding out valuable information about the health, safety and efficiency of your electrical systems. They’re also required for most insurance policies.
Call Mold Busters today to book your infrared scan. We offer comprehensive infrared electrical surveys across the Ottawa and Montreal area.
Infrared electrical surveys for predictive maintenance
Sometimes electrical systems overheat, malfunction and even fail, leading to expensive damage to system components as well as serious safety hazards.
However, you can drastically reduce the risk of this happening with predictive maintenance.
At Mold Busters, our certified thermographers will analyze the harmonics of your electrical components with our high-resolution thermal imaging cameras and uncover problems with
- Breaker panels,
- Switch gear,
- Bus heads,
- Motor-control centres, and
- Variable frequency drives.
You can rest assured that any elevated or abnormal temperatures will be recorded. This information can then be used to avoid and prevent interruption of service, damage to the equipment or the possibility of a fire.
Infrared electrical inspections for homes and residential properties
Infrared scans of electrical equipment can also be used to check residential properties for faulty connections, overheating components and other dangerous electrical work that could threaten the safety of you and your loved ones.
Electrical surveys are especially useful if you live in an old house or are thinking about purchasing an older home. Often, these homes have electrical systems that are not up to code and that tend to create a hazardous and unsafe living environment.
Don’t take any risks. Call Mold Busters today to schedule your infrared electrical survey in Ottawa or Montreal.
Benefits of regular electrical inspections
Infrared electrical inspections are completely non-contact and, as such, they can be carried out without any interruption to normal system operation. This is a cost-effective way to check up on your equipment.
By getting a regular infrared scan of your electrical systems and its components, you can also:
- Prevent equipment and system failure
- Extend equipment life
- Prevent unplanned downtime
- Reduce the risk of overheating and fire
- Increase worker safety
We recommend getting your electrical systems checked every 12 months—in fact, many insurance companies now require annual inspections of critical equipment.
In addition, if you are planning to purchase a commercial or industrial building, you should seriously consider getting an electrical inspection to ensure that you are making a good investment.
