Oftentimes, we don’t really think what goes on inside the walls of our homes and buildings. But when you run a commercial or industrial building, taking a look inside the walls every once in awhile can save you a lot of headaches in the long run. Infrared inspections are the least invasive way to do just that. While they can’t tell you everything, they can let you know if something unusual is going on. Read more
Infrared inspections are perhaps one of the best tools to use as part of a proactive predictive maintenance program for your facilities. They are a non-destructive way to identify potential defects in electrical systems, equipment and machinery that could lead to breakdowns. By having infrared inspections done regularly, you can have peace of mind about the condition of the key components in your facilities. Read more
We all know how expensive appliance repairs can be. But did you know that faulty components can be found before they cause your appliances to break down and require costly repairs or replacement? Infrared inspections can find bad or overloaded electrical connections and mechanical parts before they actually fail.
Infrared imaging has become invaluable for many commercial facility managers in keeping their buildings running smoothly. In fact, facilities regularly inspected with infrared imaging tend to have little or no downtime at all. How is this possible? There are several reasons for infrared imaging providing these benefits.

You may have seen how thermal imaging can be used on checking on potential problems with electrical panels. This is commonly done in regular inspections of multi-family apartment complexes, as well as commercial and industrial buildings. Of course, you can actually have an infrared inspection done on your home’s electrical panel, too. Why is it important to do so? What do these infrared inspections actually look for and how could it help you to have one done in your home? Read more
Between rising costs to produce and deliver electricity and aging infrastructure and equipment, utility companies are caught between a rock and hard place in terms of providing reliable electricity services to customers while controlling costs. Finding a way to increase reliability without significantly increasing costs is a chronic challenge for utility companies. Read more
When Home inspectors come to your door, you expect a thorough investigation of what could be wrong with your premise. The inspectors do their inspection, and maybe you find that they did not get to the depth of it; the reason behind this is the lack of thermal imaging or an infrared inspection. Here are the four reasons why it is important to enlist infrared thermal imaging when doing home inspections. Read more
Infrared inspections involve using infrared cameras to detect hot spots arising from defects in connections and other components. Increased resistance could lead to the production of excess heat that could be very dangerous if not detected early enough and the situation rectified. The infrared cameras take thermal images of the building and thus enabling an analysis of the various levels of infrared radiation. A thorough thermography process helps you find out all the problems and causes of threats in your house.
Damaged devices and tools could interrupt the production process and result to big losses and time wastage. Just before the situations gets to that point, many companies have adopted various methods of protecting their assets and production devices from the damage. Infrared inspections are one of these preventive measures. It is a nondestructive process that helps detect and reveal any electrical or mechanical problems in equipment of work which arise from the excess heat caused by resistance. It involves the use of infrared cameras that pinpoint spots of danger in the devices which the human eye could never see. The cameras have a top class sensitivity that works even without illumination and thus very efficient.
Our infrared inspection services are a proven effective part of an overall condition-based maintenance strategy.
