Benefits of IR scans of electrical panels
We like to believe that the electricians that we hire know electricity. US Infrared Inspections, LLC also agrees with this premise up to the performance of the panel of which the electrician can’t see.
The image on this page is if a panel with a hot spot that could be an overloaded circuit. The electrician can find this if he took the time to measure each circuit but for the most part, they don’t. Electricity is dangerous and is the leading cause of fires in homes. Periodic (annual) scans can reveal loose connections that happen over time due to connection becoming loose because of the heating and cooling of connections.
