Electrical Thermal Scanning Services

Electrical thermal scanning is an excellent assessment tool for diagnosing electrical issues in a complex electrical system. Also referred to as thermal scanning technology, electrical thermal scans allow qualified technicians to accurately identify “hot spots” or the lack of “hot spots”.

Undesirable electrical heat could result in a number of reasons – a malfunctioning breaker; a loose electrical connection; even a poorly installed piece of hardware. Whatever the fault line, any one of these issues could signal a potential danger zone. Ongoing surveillance is critical.

Electrical Thermal Infrared Scanning Inspection From the Team at Inch by Inch 

electrical thermal scanMassive electrical systems can be daunting for a building owner or property manager. After all, the prospect of a malfunction can be potentially disastrous, let alone dangerous. At Inch-by-Inch we provide a level of oversight and maintenance that relieves much of the pressure and stress.  

Inch By Inch Inspections provides thermal scanning services for electrical inspections of commercial buildings. Using high-tech electrical thermal scanning devices, Inch-by-Inch offers scheduled electrical thermal scanning services for buildings and facilities of all sizes. Thermal imaging cameras are used to locate and identify problems in electrical systems before they occur. This is the key to providing safety and security for residents, occupants, in-house staff, and customers. Clearly, preventive maintenance is the best approach.

The Benefits of Thermal Imaging Over Other Inspection Methods

  • Cost-efficient – An infrared thermal scan is an easy, non-contact method to detect heat loss and electrical problems. After the inspection, the results are presented in an easy-to-understand report.
  • Reliable – A thermal scan is a digital map that shows areas where there are problems and how severe they are. It provides accurate information so you can make informed decisions about how to proceed with renovations or upgrades.
  • Detailed Reports – Thermal scans are generated using specialized infrared cameras that produce detailed thermal images.
  • Visualize – Electrical thermal scanning inspection allows you to see missing insulation at conduit penetrations, cracks in connectors and splices, excessive heat caused by wiring issues, loose connections or broken insulation between wires and terminals, high heat levels from overloading circuits or switches, damaged wire insulation, hot spots due to a short or an arcing fault.

Detecting Performance Issues With Electrical Thermal Scanning

Electrical Thermal Scanning InspectionsWith highly advanced thermal scanning technology, Inch-by-Inch technicians can expose far more than any conventional electrical inspection. Our imaging reports are accurate and detailed, with data results that are actionable. No other diagnostics can compare with an infrared assessment.

Probably the most critical aspect of electrical thermal scanning is interpretation. At Inch-by-Inch, thermal imaging scan results are precise – alerting building owners and property managers to respond appropriately. As such, preventive repairs and retrofits set the stage for a safe and secure electrical system. 

Electrical Thermal Scanning Offers a Preventive Approach

Electrical Thermal ScanningSimply put, an electrical thermal scanning device can discover and pinpoint potential electrical failures before they have a chance to pose a danger. Building managers are apprised of repair requirements and are made aware of “hidden” problem areas. It’s an effective preventive approach to maintenance.

A comprehensive electrical thermal scan & inspection provides significant benefits. Building owners are assured of system reliability, allowing them to stay ahead of any breakdowns while providing safety and security for all involved. Over the long term, major repairs are effectively avoided.

In any building, regardless of size, electrical predictive maintenance should be an integral part of regular annual maintenance. Scanning for potential “red flags” is an astute way to keep things running smoothly without having to worry about potential breakdowns or very serious crashes.

Thermal Scanning for Electrical System Inspection

Mapping electrical problems quickly

Thermal Image Scanning takes the guesswork out of detecting and locating the source of electrical problems in your home or business. Using thermal imaging technology, we can pinpoint hot spots and track down problems within your electrical system, helping you to avoid future issues. 

Guide to Thermal Scanning for Electrical systems

Thermal cameras provide visible images of temperatures within an electrical system. Electrical thermal scanning inspections are a non-contact technique that detects electrical system issues, providing insight into the health of your electrical system. When thermal cameras are used for inspecting electrical systems, it is called infrared thermal imaging, or thermography. A thermal camera for electrical inspection can be used to inspect other systems as well, including your home heating system and even common appliances like stoves and refrigerators.

Technology has improved a lot over the past few years, but whether you are an HVAC technician or an installer who uses thermal imaging, getting the most out of your equipment can be a painstaking process. Not only do you have to spend time developing and adjusting your thermal image to get the best picture possible, but you also have to spend time translating all of the data. Working with electrical systems is no different.

The data that thermal imaging can collect often cannot be interpreted by just anyone. It takes expertise in both thermal imaging and electrical systems to translate said data into viable information about your system and what might need to be changed.

Sometimes, there is simply too much data to make a conclusive decision, so you will need to take the collected image and export it where a trained professional can look at it and provide specific details about your system.

    What Our Clients Say About Us

    Hiring a construction contractor to renovate my house for the first time, I was not familiar with any of the DSS-related requirements.  So, it was quite reassuring to find someone like Tony who is trustworthy and knowledgeable. I also needed a quick turnaround for the completed DSS report and Tony delivered (on time, as promised).  In short, Tony was great to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime.   

    Richard, Toronto

    Tony did an excellent job with inspecting the house. He was very knowledgable in his field and thorough with his inspection. He carefully and patiently looked at both the exterior and interior of the building. He pointed out the deficiencies, what the risks are and how to rectify them. He answered all of our questions and made sure that we understood them. He offered his expertise and help if we needed.

    Mandan, Toronto

    I have heard a lot of stories about home inspection but I could honestly say that I had a great experience. I would like to thank Tony from Inch by Inch Home Inspection for the great experience. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Tony through my realtor. I want to thank Tony for taking the time to answer any questions and any concerns I had about my home inspection.

    Teresa, Toronto

    Tony Muscat of Inch by Inch Inspections is extremely professional, caring and a prompt individual, when he heard we may have a mold problem he came immediately. Tony was worried with the level of mold that was contained in this recent purchased older home and he walked me through the process of getting rid of the mold and what dangers were involved. He paid the best attention to us, while we went through this horrible ordeal. The fact that impressed me the most was his vast amount of knowledge, and the dangers of each mould which there are many. He is extremely professional and equipped to handle any job. I would recommend Inch by Inch, (Tony) to anyone he is a concerned and serious individual, that cares about your family!!!!!!!

    I contacted this company to do an air quality test after we had asbestos wrapping removed from our basement. They were the most reasonably priced. The young man came the same day and was very thorough about the entire process. I appreciate that Tony was able to get my results sooner than the previously date we originally agreed on.

    Iman, Mississauga

    Tony came to my home to help me inspect the potential root causes of some water damage in my home. Through his vast knowledge and the use of the latest technology, he was able to help me understand what led to the damage and how to better prevent it in the future.
