While there are obvious issues associated with HVAC or commercial refrigeration/food and beverage equipment failures, a facility’s electrical and lighting system is at the center of everything. An infrared test offers commercial facilities an opportunity to ensure their electrical systems are working properly and anticipate any potential repairs or upcoming equipment replacements.
Here are a few things to consider when scheduling a test for your facility:
Additionally, ensuring electrical systems are working properly affects safety, whether that involves the reduction of fire hazards or functioning lights preventing falling hazards. For medical facilities, working electrical systems are critical for saving lives. One of the primary reasons to conduct an infrared test is to prevent an electrical system emergency. Faulty electrical systems are almost certain to disrupt facility operations, incurring drastic costs. These costs are magnified if a facility is mission-critical.
Through infrared testing, maintenance service crews can detect blown fuses, broken motors, overloaded circuit breakers, and other components that may require repair. This gives facility crews and maintenance staff the information they need to tackle issues before they escalate.
Instead of tediously checking every individual piece of equipment, an infrared test offers the ability to check systems rapidly without compromising quality. You won’t have to worry about extended service call charges, and you will get the results you need to make the right decisions for your facility.
Remember that an infrared test is among the most efficient maintenance tests available for detecting electrical issues.
Infrared thermography is noninvasive, which means facility operations do not need to stop during the test. In addition, infrared thermography is ideal for contactless detection as we adjust and implement innovate tools to support facility function in the workplace.
Through infrared, maintenance service crews can detect blown fuses, broken motors, overloaded circuit breakers, and much more.
Reactive maintenance (better known as emergency maintenance) is costly, but it’s more probable without the proper scheduled maintenance.
According to the Department of Energy, planned maintenance services reduce costs by 25-30 percent, eliminate the potential of breakdowns by 70 percent, and reduce facility downtime by 35 percent on average.
In almost every case, your best bet is to lean on planned maintenance service for electrical equipment, especially with a certified team that offers a comprehensive infrared scan.
