Given it’s cold outside and everyone wants that air-con turned up nice and warm – cranking through the power, we thought now might be a good excuse to talk about the importance of thermographic testing. Should your switchboard fail, it won’t just be the aircon that’s likely to go down. Depending on how many boards you have in your premises, it could be the whole business or significant chunks of your business left without power. Just think what that would do to productivity – not to mention the whining that would ensue because people are cold. But wait, you don’t have to wait for it to melt down. Thermographic testing allows us to see into the future – so that you can take preventative action sooner rather than later. Thermographic testing requires no contact with live wires and is a non-intrusive safety method use to protect the integrity and foundation of your business. A qualified Randall Electrics & Communications electrician can assess your property and make sure that your electrics are functioning safely and securely. A thermographic test is often required as part of a fire risk assessment by your business’ insurance company or as part of a routine inspection and testing of electrical installations within the business.
