An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Mother tends to have a lot of advice that we should probably heed more often, like “look before you leap” or “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

In the realm of electrical circuits, power supply and system maintenance, you wouldn’t think any of mother’s old semantics would be brilliant words of advice, right? Wrong. Here at Pieper, we are taking the motherly adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” to heart. Mother may not have been spot on about everything, but one thing she did have right was that it’s easier to prevent a problem than to fix one – especially when it comes to your electrical system.

The electrical system serves as the backbone of building operations; when it fails the entire building can go down. A catastrophic failure of the electrical system could equate to loss of life, computer data and employee productivity and may upset tenants. A thermal imaging survey can identify trouble spots before disaster strikes. Typically when electrical components begin to fail, they become less efficient and the heat emitted increases, sometimes slowly, other times rapidly until all the lights go out.

Pieper’s thermal imaging surveys can detect anomalies early, allowing for time to safely repair the problem spots. Imagine the cost of equipment repair or replacement and the loss of profits during an electrical failure compared to the cost of thermal imaging testing; a little money and prevention now could save a lot of money and headache later. At Pieper, our trained and certified technicians use the most advanced thermal imaging testing equipment to provide detailed reports with digital photographs of trouble areas, along with an overall building electrical evaluation and solutions to any identified issues.

Thermal imaging testing is best preformed under a full load, so it can be completed during normal working hours with no disruption to your daily schedule. Ask about Pieper’s thermal testing program, because as mother always said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
