Thermal Imaging

Christchurch Electrical provides electrical thermal imaging inspections for a wide range of customers - domestic, commercial and industrial. Thermal imaging is a non-invasive, non-contact procedure that is designed to detect potential electrical faults and identify any switchboard hazards early, before a potentially costly or even dangerous failure. It is best carried out when the switchboard is operating under normal conditions.

What is Thermal Imaging?

Thermal imaging (or thermography) is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to detect and measure the thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal (or infrared energy) is light that is not visible to the naked eye and is part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Our infrared cameras produce interpretable images of invisible heat radiation and offer precise non-contact measurement capabilities. Nearly any piece of electrical equipment will get increasingly hot before it fails - a fact that makes thermal imaging with infrared cameras an extremely cost-effective and valuable diagnostic tool in electrical work, with a wide-ranging and a diverse number of applications.
Electrical maintenance work

Electrical thermal imaging inspections can be used:

  • When systems are under load
  • To take a wide view of your system – there’s no need to just focus on a point
  • To identify and locate trouble spots
  • To tell you exactly what needs to be fixed or replaced
  • To plan and manage repairs before unexpected and potentially expensive breakdowns occur

Who Would Benefit From An Electrical Thermal Imaging Inspection?

Both domestic and commercial customers can benefit from electrical diagnostics performed with thermal imaging. Our comprehensive colour reports are often required by
  • Insurance companies
  • Property managers
  • Landlords
  • Homeowners

Trained Operators

Christchurch Electrical has senior electricians who are trained and qualified in thermography on staff. Their extensive electrical experience is an essential factor in the diagnosis process. A full colour, bound report is provided to our customers at the completion of each thermal imaging inspection we perform, and this report will contain our expert recommendations for any replacements and/or preventative maintenance that is needed either urgently or in the long-run.
