All electrical components release thermal energy in the form of infrared radiation. The higher the temperature, the more energy contained within the component and the greater the radiant energy emitted from its surface. Radiant energy is not visible to the eye, however infrared electrical thermal imaging can make it visible and measurable and provide a permanent record in the form of a radiometric jpeg or thermogram.
Why use electrical thermal imaging services?
The temperature of an electrical object can be a good indicator of its condition or health. For components to be performing efficiently and safely they should be within their design temperature range. An electrical thermal imaging survey can detect whether levels of radiation from an object’s surface (which is converted to temperature) or the characteristics of the emissions are normal or abnormal: this can act as an early warning and alert you to potential failures.
Advantages of thermal imaging electrical inspections
No physical contact with energised components. The inspection is classed as a Non-Destructive Test (NDT) and can be conducted safely on live installations;
A large data set of apparent temperature readings can be collected for diagnostic evaluation. Our cameras have over 300,000 separate detector elements;
It provides a permanent record so the condition of components can be compared and monitored over time;
Why should businesses have regular electrical thermal imaging surveys?
Reduce insured risk. Formal electrical thermographic surveys by trained thermographers are accepted by many insurers (for example Aviva) and can reduce insured risk by demonstrating that you have a condition monitoring plan in place;
Providing we have reasonable access we can potentially inspect more than 100 electrical assets a day making it a cost-effective inspection technique for large facilities;
Why use Thermalume for electrical thermal imaging?
Simply stated, we tick all the boxes for electrical thermographic inspections.
Our electrical thermographers are qualified to PCN level 2 and ABBE Level 3;
We use calibrated 640 x 480 resolution cameras: these are considered by industry to be among the highest available for commercial work;
We use a methodology that ensures that our surveys are consistent and repeatable. In this way periodic inspections can be standardised, and temperature results can be monitored over time.
We will issue a clearly written PDF report which will traffic light the results and provide analysis. Suspected critical defects will be clearly flagged in red for immediate attention. Assets that have heat signatures and patterns that do not suggest significant thermal faults will be marked as green or amber.
Our thermographers are associate members of the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing and adhere to their code of practice;
We carry public and professional liability insurance.

If you think you have cold issues in your house, you probably do and a report from James will show this in a very effective way. I ditto comments of other about builders. If you think you have concerns get this thermal report done ASAP. Would recommend to anyone. Thank James
Outstanding service, professional, and highly recommended. The company produced an excellent report which aided us tremendously in moving forward in a new build snagging dispute. We have been relying on their expertise and advice many times and would recommend this company over any other.
If I ever buy a new house and need similar services I will not hesitate to enquire their services. I highly recommend them and honestly knowing the hell we went through with our house I always recommend this company to the people I speak to who I know bought a new built.
James Hill was excellent, professional and detailed. Even though he visited our home just prior to ‘lock down’ March 2020, we received a full and detailed report which helped enormously with our negligent builders. We would not hesitate to recommend Thermalume.
Great service! The information given prior to the Imaging was detailed, and James was very quiet in the morning, and did not disturb. Thorough in his technique, and quick to provide a draft Report, and also the Final Report. Also answered questions accurately too! Excellent.
