Below are some of the commercial benefits of a commercial thermographic scan.
Commercial building incoming power
Increased safety from electrical fires in main incoming power section, transformers and panelboards. Early detection of hot spots and loose connections will reduce electrical fire potential. In hospitals and schools there is an added safety risk of smoke inhalation. Cost savings are direct fire costs, electrical component replacement cost and smoke damage costs. Indirect fire costs are loss of business revenue i.e hospitality industry.
Electric vehicle battery and charger thermal imaging
Increased safety from electrical fires in electric vehicles and EV charging systems. Early detection of hot spots and loose connections will reduce electrical fire potential. In vehicles and charging stations there is a safety risk of electrical fires due to battery failures and thermal runaway. Cost savings are reduction of direct fire costs, electrical component replacement cost and battery replacement costs. Indirect fire costs are loss of business revenue i.e EV charger uptime.
Building heat loss detected with thermal scan
Reduced cost of heating / air conditioning. Typically heating and / or air conditioning electricity cost in a resort or hotel account for 50-60% of the total power bill. A thermal scan will find sources of heat / AC loss. Cost savings are in reduced overall utility costs.
Crypto mining farm overheated causing fire
Increased reliability and uptime for computer/cryptocurrency servers and server farms. A thorough thermal scan will detect the possible overheating of computers, network switches and power supplies. Cost savings are prevention of computer systems on computer component failure due to overheating. Cost savings of potential customer loss due to unexpected failure.
Commercial solar panel array
Increased power output / reliability in solar panels, inverter and battery bank. Detection of failed solar panels and overheating/damaged batteries and inverter. Cost savings are increased power output and early detection of failing components. Cost savings of potential customer loss due to unexpected power failure. ie. hospitality sector or ecotourism using solar as main source of power.
Commercial building flooding
Reduced cost of building repair due to water intrusion in roof and walls. Early detection of leaks will allow repair before the problem increases and roof/walls need replacement. Also early detection may prevent black and blue molds from forming. Cost savings are reduced cost of repair and also costs associated with rooms/apartments being unavailable to rent.
Pool leak detection
Reduced cost of pool repair and chemical cost savings. Thermal scanning will allow you to pinpoint exact location of pool/pipe leak, this will reduce the cost to excavate and repair leaking pool. Chemical costs can be reduced by early detection and repair of pool leaks.
