Faults to the Electrical Installation usually only come to light when they burn out or completely fail, causing risk of fire or plant disruption.
A survey will highlight problem areas, and we will tell you in our report exactly what you need to repair the fault.
You may ask why carry out a Thermographic Survey? Well prevention is always better than cure, especially where electricity is concerned.
Thermography is recognised for the first time in the current 17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations as a method of effectively maintaining your electrical systems, and is becoming more and more a common request from insurance companies before acceptance can be given.
A professional thermal survey allows you to detect electrical faults before the components fail, and because it’s non-intrusive, it’s extremely fast and efficient.
A thermal imaging survey is a complementary service to Fixed Installation Testing. It can pick up problems such as overheating components that may not be revealed during standard testing. It’s also a valuable way to identify fire risks without having to power down important areas, the survey can replace the expensive and disruptive task of Yearly Inspection as required by many Planned Maintenance regimes.
At Equiptest we use the latest industry-leading cameras and software to produce high-precision reports that clearly identify any problems, so you can take immediate action without all the added disruption of invasive exploration.
We conduct heat loss surveys for a wide range of clients including managing agents and property developers, who find that their heating costs have soared or who have a particular concern with a room, extension, or the whole property.
We can carry out a survey on your property or home, and produce a report which will clearly identify heat loss or energy wastage ££££££.
Thermal Imaging Survey can achieve the following:
- Identify the areas of heat loss
- Locate areas of cold bridging
- Improve comfort and save energy
- See badly insulated areas which result in energy losses
- Avoid unnecessary repairs
- Identify air leaks
- Find water damage
Roof Leak Survey
By using high specification equipment we are able to locate and highlight leaks in flat roofs. This can save huge amounts of time and money, often allowing clients to carry out minor repairs as opposed to mass renewal of roofs.
Our very high resolution camera systems allow us to capture images from the air and map out large areas of towns, cities or landscapes. These images can be used by councils to identify areas requiring remedial repairs or additional insulation.
All our thermographers are ECA approved to ensure that images are interpreted correctly and thoroughly. Rather than simply providing images of ‘hot spots’, we provide detailed reports and conclusions, enabling the correct action to be carried out.
