Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it changes forms. When equipment is not operating properly, is wearing out, or has loose electrical connections, the energy is converted to heat and unnecessary consumption occurs.
With a specialized camera, this heat can be detected and existing problems can be corrected, as well as potential problems avoided.
The following services are available to Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative commercial and industrial customers.
- A Thermal Scan of electrical panel boxes, individual electrical equipment or HVAC equipment and duct systems.
- A Comprehensive report including a thermal image of existing or potential problems and digital imaging to facilitate corrective measures. A follow up scanning will be done to verify successful correction.
