Thermal imaging services

Thermal imaging is a non-invasive and innovative way to test your electrical wiring. By using a specialist camera to determine the thermal energy being emitted by your switchboard, we identify potential hazards promptly. This process is highly accurate and can pinpoint where exactly there is a problem and what needs to be repaired. This means issues can be addressed before a breakdown occurs. Our infrared cameras are a non-contact intervention that’s cost-effective, but also identifies issues that the human eye cannot.

How do I know if my switchboard needs an upgrade?

Your switchboard may need to be upgraded if you live in an older house, and especially one that has fuses instead of circuit breakers. If your circuit breakers are tripping regularly or your appliances aren’t functioning properly, this is also a sign that you might need an upgrade. If you’re carrying out renovations it’s advisable to check with an electrical expert whether you need to upgrade your switchboard too.

When do I need a licensed electrician?

You should always get in touch with a licensed electrician whenever you need electrical work carried out. In New South Wales it’s illegal for anyone other than a licensed electrician to do wiring or rewiring work in a domestic setting, so it’s vital that you always enlist professional services for electrical work.

What is a private power pole?

A private power pole is a connection between your home and the local electrical network. They are installed on your property and allow you to direct electricity to wherever you want it to be in your home. These can be permanently in place, or temporary poles can be erected for builders or other contractors who need an additional electricity supply for their work.
