  2. 2. Tuesday, October 04, 2011Dear Alex:Included is the report is our conclusion of the Electrical Inspect IRthat was performed at your location on the 31W By Pass in BowlingGreen KY.Property Inspectir is proud to assist you in helping save down timeas well as reduce your energy costs.This Electrical Inspect IR report is designed to be clear, easy tounderstand and helpful. If there is anything you would like for ourCertified Thermographer to explain this report and provide pricing for astore to store basis, or if there is other information you would like,please feel free to call us 877-SCAN 447.We thank you for the opportunity to be of service to you.Sincerely,J HarnageJohn Harnage279-282-3194 / 877 SCAN 447Electrical Inspect IR TechnicianAuthorized Electrical Inspect IR® ContractorCertified Infrared Thermographer#7926 *Infrared Thermography is not a substitute for visual and/or other instrumental inspection techniques and should be a regular part of the overall a preventive/predictive maintenance program at your facilities.

  4. 4. Understanding Infrared Imagery and ThermographyGeneralThis inspection report reflects the conditions of the property at the time of the surveyonly. Hidden or concealed defects cannot be included in this report, therefore no warrantyis either expressed or implied, however an earnest effort was made to discover defects.When an image is taken by our group of certified thermographers as an infrared image, itis recorded on the internal memory of the processing equipment and later converted to adigital image file with the assistance of a computer. The image may be then modified in anumber of ways to enhance its value to the end user. In the case of this report, the imageswere digitized and then adjusted for contrast and brightness before being scaled andplaced into our custom program and later converted to this PDF file.AnalysisProperty Inspectir was contracted to find areas of potential electrical concern. Oursurvey is an attempt to identify the potential issues within your electrical system. Theimaging service should be considered a valuable part of your overall predictivemaintenance program. Every attempt was made to image property according to theASTM C1060 standard; however, due to circumstances beyond our control this might nothave been possible. For example, weather conditions, inaccessible areas, furniture orappliances that cover a given area.RecommendationsProperty Inspectir recommends all areas showing anomalies should be reviewed to findout the cause and repaired. Our recommendations are not intended as criticisms of thebuildings electrical system, but rather as professional opinion regarding conditions thatwe establish.We are often asked how to prioritize the repairs and repair the areas that have beenidentified in this report. Below, find the three categories:  Conditions which affect performance and life safety issues (if any) are of course, of the highest priority.  Next are conditions that do not appear to pose any threat to the safety of the occupants of the building, but that need repair because they create a condition that affects the performance of the building or could deteriorate the building itself. Examples would be items that appear to be critical with increased heat temperatures.  Finally, lower priority conditions that have a low impact on performance of the thermal, air and/or moisture barriers, but have reached the level of a reportable anomaly. These should be evaluated to determine if it is cost-effective to conduct repairs.
  5. 5. OrientationWe will describe the locations of the various features of this panel, left or right, etc., asthough we were standing in street looking at the front of building.Information Contained On the Thermographic Report PagesThrough the use of thermal imaging, we have found areas with anomalies. Theseanomalies have been notated on the individual thermographic reports that follow(typically, two per page). Infrared thermographs and visual photographs were takenduring survey. If we did not find a reportable anomaly, we did not create a thermographicreport.InterpretationWhen viewing IR images, anomalies commonly present where the conditions exist and/orwhere our reference (arrows or area boxes) are located. When Electrical Inspect IRimages are taken we will commonly place them in Rainbow High Contrast for the bestviewing as well as understanding of the Thermal Image.
