At Hexo Electrical Testing we offer an Electrical Thermographic Survey service to our commercial clients. A thermographic survey is usually used to supplement regular EICR testing, and the recommended frequency is once per year.

Why have a thermographic survey?

An electrical thermographic survey carried out by a skilled electrical inspector will identify any unusual hot spots in the fixed electrical installation. 

It does not require any down time for the business as the survey is performed live and under normal operating conditions, so nothing is turned off. In fact, we need the installation to be under load so we can detect any issues using an electrical thermal imaging camera

A thermographic survey should be carried out once per year between EICR testing intervals.

    Very quick service through the website, the electrician came to inspect our flat the very same day - and I especially like the phone-call to let us know what time he would arrive. Service was professional and he explained everything to us before he left. There was a slight snag with the next-day certificate but this was cleared up for the following day by the friendly man on the phone. Would recommend.

    Hexo carried out an EICR on my house and were very professional and reasonably priced. As a result i commissioned them to carry out the identified remedial work and again i was very please by the quality of service. Big thanks to the back office for arranging everything.

    Great service for an EICR - Hexo were able to schedule us in quickly and at a very reasonable price relative to other quotes we'd had. On the day, the engineer was professional, courteous and explained thoroughly the results of the report, which we received promptly by email. Would recommend to anyone needing electrical testing.

    Hexo Electrical recently completed an EICR and carried out some remedial works in my rented flat. The testing was thorough, they were honest about what work was required and what was recommended, but not essential. Hexo Electrical carried out the testing and completed the upgrades quickly and at a very competitive price and I was very pleased with the service provided. I’m sure I will use them again.

    A great experience right from the start. I needed an urgent EICR as we were selling our house and we didn’t have the required paperwork. Very polite staff and a speedy plus reasonably priced service. I would definitely use them again. Thank you.

    Really impressed by Hexo. They provided surveys both for the house we are selling and the one we are buying. They were prompt, reliable and took the time to explain things clearly and fully. They've since carried out work on our property - the engineer was excellent, worked incredibly hard to get it done on schedule, and took a lot of care to avoid making mess or damaging the decoration. Excellent communication throughout. Very highly recommended.

    Great service, good communication and explanations of works to be carried out

    What is checked during an electrical thermal imaging survey?

    Areas that will usually be checked are:

    • Distribution boards
    • Bus bar chambers 
    • Switchgear 
    • Contactor enclosures 
    • General enclosures and junction boxes

    Typically, the survey will highlight any:

    • Loose connections
    • Overheating circuit breakers or fuses 
    • Abnormal loading 
    • Overheating distribution equipment

    What happens after an electrical thermal imaging survey?

    If any issues are detected, then we can undertake remedial work and rectify the problems to make the installation safe. 

    The process is quicker and much less disruptive than EICR testing but should be undertaken in conjunction with a regular Commercial EICR.

    It’s an excellent way to maintain a safe fixed electrical installation, and in most cases insurance companies will reduce premiums if thermographic surveys are undertaken, as the risk of an electrical fire is reduced.

    Who needs a thermographic survey?

    An electrical thermographic survey is recommended for all commercial premises and businesses as it is an excellent way to be vigilant and reduce risk of dangerous electrical defects. 

    Your insurance company may insist that you have a survey undertaken, or one may be incentivised by a reduction in premiums as it is a recognised method of reducing electrical incidents.

    How much does a thermal imaging survey cost?

    Electrical thermal imaging survey costs depend on how many items we will be inspectin

    g. As we are an electrical inspection and testing company, we do not require a separate competent person to open the electrical items for us, so there will be no additional costs by using us.  

    Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we will provide you with a fixed price for your electrical thermographic survey.

    How often should a thermographic survey be carried out?

    It is recommended that a thermographic survey is carried out once per year, in between a regular Commercial EICR

    Is there any disruption?

    There is minimal disruption as because we use an electrical thermal imaging camera, we do not need to isolate any electrical supplies, so all power will remain on.

    We will need to gain access to every piece of equipment that is to be inspected and then open this equipment to perform the thermal imaging survey.
