Thermal imaging is a service we offer that can discover potential failures of electrical equipment.
It can help prevent fires due to electrical failure in commercial and residential properties.
Thermal imaging involves examining electrical equipment with technology that will detect any faulty fuses, loose connections and overloaded circuits.
These aren't always visible to the naked eye and can be overlooked during routine inspections.
Thermal imaging can also help to detect heat loss through windows, doors and hot water cylinders in domestic properties.
Our thermal imaging equipment can assess electrical equipment such as switchboards, switchgear and motor control.
Along with detection of potential electrical hazards, thermal imaging can find faults before they cause major damage to your entire system, minimising costs and down-time.
Our thermal imaging service can provide an assessment of your meter and switchboard to identify any potential electrical faults. Our qualified electricians can also carry out any repairs and maintenance that is required.
It can also show where heat loss is happening in homes from windows, doors and hot water cylinders. This can help you when making choices on insulation and heating solutions.
Insurance companies may request thermal imaging reports as evidence in a claim, for assessing risk in new applications and can sometimes help reduce your insurance premiums.
Northpower is experienced in dealing with the reporting requirements of insurance companies. We can carry out a thermal imaging survey and report directly to your insurance assessor.
