Electrical Thermal Imaging Surveys for your building

Electrical Thermal imaging Surveys are essential cog in the predictive maintenance program for the ongoing safety in your building. An infrared survey can identify potential faults on everything from large distribution boards to individual fuses, this allows maintenance teams to undertake remedial works before critical asset failure. We can quickly analyse your electrical assets and provide you with unique easily understandable thermal imaging reports.

All we need are a few details such as floor plans, as well as description of your electrical assets.  We will also send across our informative checklist to help you prepare for the electrical thermal survey.


Electrical infrared thermal surveys are useful because they provide the following:

  1. Save time & money: by reducing downtime, maintenance costs, and energy consumption.
  2. Improving quality and productivity: by optimizing the electrical systems operation and performance.
  3. Reducing risk: By identifying potential problems before they cause damage or failure, electrical thermal surveys can prevent costly downtime, repairs, or accidents.
  4. Lowering energy costs: By finding poor connections or inefficiencies that waste energy, electrical thermal surveys can help lower annual bills and improve environmental performance.
  5. Extending the lifespan of equipment: by improving the serviceability of electrical equipment by preventing premature wear and tear
  6. Fulfilling insurance requirements: Some insurance companies may require or recommend electrical thermal surveys as part of their risk assessment or policy compliance.


Our Electrical Thermal Imaging Report contains the following info:

Our thermal imaging reports have been set up to satisfy the requirements expected by insurance companies, facility managers and safety auditors. Our electrical thermographic inspection reports usually comprise of the following four sections:

  • Introduction/Report Summary – This section provides details on the survey carried out along with summary of the overall findings.
  • Main Body Report Pages – this section explains where faults/anomalies are identified, an individual report page is produced providing a description of the fault, its severity and recommended remedial action.
  • Condition Monitoring Assessment – this section provides an understanding of the current operational condition of equipment that have been reported during previous surveys – an ongoing assessment if you will.
  • Appendices – This section provide a checklist along with images of every asset inspected during the survey. This provides an auditable record of what was inspected, together with equipment health at the time of the thermographic survey.


Thermal imaging ISO standards

There are a number of ISO standard that directly relate to the thermal imaging of buildings and electrical and mechanical installations within buildings, they are:
  • ISO 6781, Thermal insulation – Qualitative detection of thermal irregularities in building envelopes – Infrared method
  • ISO 18434-1Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines – Thermography – Part 1: General procedures
  • ISO 18436-7Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines – Requirements for qualification and assessment of personnel – Part 7: Thermography
