Infrared thermography inspections by Level II
Infrared Thermography Inspection To Comply With New 40 Year Recertification Rules
For electrical systems operating at 400 amperes or greater, an infrared thermography inspection with a written report of the following electrical equipment must be provided as applicable or as otherwise indicated below:
- Control Panels
- Meter Centers
- Junction Boxes
- Automatic/Manual Transfer Switches
- Exhaust Fans
The infrared thermal inspection of electrical equipment must be performed by a Level-II or higher certified infrared thermographer who is qualified and trained to recognize and document thermal anomalies in electrical systems. They must also possess over 7 years of experience inspecting electrical systems associated with commercial buildings.
At Souffront Construction & Engineering, we provide infrared building inspections at the most reasonable thermographic inspection cost.
Electrical System Scan
Infrared Thermography Inspection helps with identifying:
- Electrical faults before they cause a fire
- Overloaded and undersized circuits
- Circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement
- Missing, damaged, and/or wet insulation
- Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors
- Water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold
- Roof leaks – ice damming problems
- Air conditioner compressor leaks
- Under fastening and/or missing framing members
- Structural defects
- Broken seals in double pane windows
- Energy loss and efficiency
- Dangerous flue leaks
- Damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems
- Unknown plumbing leaks
- Overheated equipment

Thermography Inspection Facts
Infrared thermography home inspection services is the leading non-invasive and non-destructive method used to detect and localize material defects, short circuits, and other powered failures. It works by analyzing the heat dissipation that results from these device faults.
Thermography inspection can be used to measure the heat distribution in integrated circuits (die) and printed circuit boards, and nearly any powered device to detect hot spots.
