Using the latest technology to keep you safe

At Terrapin Electric, we’re all about staying ahead of the game, which is why we’ve integrated top-notch electrical thermal imaging into our services. This advanced technology helps us spot potential issues like overheating parts or loose connections quickly and precisely. Without thermal imaging, it can be nearly impossible to tell if something is overheating. Failure to recognize and address overheating electrical components not only leads to premature failure, but could also potentially be a cause for electrical fire.

Electrical thermal imaging is like having x-ray vision for your electrical system. By catching problems early, we keep you safe, minimize disruptions, and save you money in the long run. These high-tech solutions can also be used in commercial and industrial inspections.

When do I need an electrical inspection?

An electrical inspection is a thorough examination of your home’s electrical system to ensure it meets safety standards and regulations. It’s necessary to identify potential hazards, prevent electrical fires, and ensure the safety of your family and property. Most people get an electrical inspection before or after moving, before making home renovations, or before installing an EV charger.

It’s recommended to have your electrical system inspected at least once every 5 to 10 years for residential properties. Signs that may indicate the need for an electrical inspection include frequent circuit breaker trips, dimming or flickering lights, burning smells from outlets or switches, outdated wiring, or if your home is more than 40 years old.
