Property managers are always liable for the electrical safety of the properties under their management. Insurance companies may evaluate and consider lowering their premium if managers can submit evidence that the electrical system is under a meticulous maintenance program.  One of the many revealing maintenance programs is to carry out an Infrared Thermography Surveillance for the electrical switches and panels.
What Is Infrared Thermography?
Infrared thermography is also known as thermal imaging. It is a diagnostic tool used for predictive maintenance. Infrared imaging systems are used to scan equipment and structures, and to produce "heat" pictures from which temperature measurements can be made.
What Is Infrared Thermography Used For?
Thermographic studies, as part of electrical inspections, are used to identify electrical problems due to loose or bad connections that cause arcing and high temperature. This increased temperature can then cause components to fail, potentially resulting in unplanned outages and injuries.

In addition, the efficiency of an electrical grid becomes low prior to failure. Thus, energy is spent generating heat, causing unnecessary losses. If left unchecked, heat can rise to a point that connections melt, breaking down the insulation and breaking the circuit. As a result, fires may occur.
At AA Electric, we use FLIR Systems' ThermaCAM® systems for thermal imaging. ThermaCAM systems detect temperature differences as small as 0.07°C in objects, which is ideal since the typical industrial electrical or mechanical problems occur when there is a temperature increase of 10°C or more. The ThermaCAM systems are sealed and hardened for use in extreme and potentially hazardous conditions. This technology does not require power outage in the electrical system, so it does not create any inconvenience to the electricity users.
