Protecting Pottawattamie County with Electrical Infrared Inspections

Electrical infrared inspections and other preventative maintenance services that Miller provides are one of the key ways to protect people and preserve expensive electrical tools and equipment.

How Miller Electric Uses Infrared Thermography

ThermographyThrough its preventative maintenance program and the use of sophisticated tools like a thermal imaging camera, Miller Electric helps businesses and municipalities across Omaha and Council Bluffs identify loose connections and overloads before they degenerate into a situation that results in catastrophic system failure.

“We use a suite of testing to look for noise and heat anomalies,” says Jeremy Overman, Electrical Risk Consultant for Miller Electric. “Our electrical infrared scans give customers the satisfaction of knowing that their electrical equipment is operating the way it is supposed to.”

Powering Pottawattamie County

That’s music to Jim Yochum’s ears. As the Director of Buildings and Grounds for Pottawattamie County, Jim is responsible for overseeing electrical maintenance of the Pottawattamie County courthouse; annex building; services building; elections building; county care facility; DHS building; and the new veterans affairs building. With so many critical services on the line, Jim finds great value in the annual electrical infrared inspections that Miller Electric provides.

“It’s not cheap to do the study but when you find something wrong and realize what you would lose if you lost the equipment, the cost is worth it.”

Finding problems early reduces costly unplanned outages and downtime and protects employees, the public and expensive electrical tools and equipment from electrical danger. It also can help companies reduce their insurance premiums.

Since we’ve always made safety a priority at Miller Electric, preventative maintenance is not only good business; it’s common sense. It’s also one of the ways that safety can power business growth.
