Electrical Inspections (Home/Business)
These tests are a non destructive analysis of the heat retaining value of your home via a thermal imaging camera.
In the cooler months of the year this is performed primarily on
the outside of the home by observing the walls, windows, doors and roofs
surfaces being heated as your home losses energy. In the warmer months the
test is conducted primarily on the inside of the home as the sun's heat
passes through the walls, windows, doors and the roof heating the inside
of the home.
NOTE: There must be a 20 degree difference between the
indoor and outdoor temperature for the test to perform properly
and show the maximum
deficiencies or efficiencies of your homes insulation.
This test is not fail proof as the thermal imager is not capable of seeing into
objects just the surface temperatures.
Flat Roof Inspections
For flat roof inspections standing water must be drained by the building owner
or a third party. This test is performed after sun down. The camera
is used to look at the surface of the roof to detect water leaks.
Water leaks are detected because the saturated insulation holds the suns energy
longer than dry insulation showing comparatively hot spots.
Electrical inspections are done with the electrical panel off. We have a licensed
electrician on staff to comply with NFPA 70 regulations. Separate
rates will be incurred for the electrician. Electrical hot spots or loose
connections are detected with the use of the imager saving short
circuits and fire hazards.
Proper shaft rotation of motors is detected by the heat signature from both the
shaft and the motor.
Floor radiant pipes, and leaks are easily detected when the system is first turned
Verification of tank levels can be performed with the camera.
These tests are performed at the rate of $135.00 per
hour. You will receive a paper report within 3 business days
of the building analysis clearly stating, with pictures,
the thermal deficiencies.
(Travel charges will occur when distances are over 100 miles.)
