When An Infrared Thermography Inspection Is Required
Changes effective January 2022, General Consideration & Guidelines for building recertification inspections require a 40 Year Recertification Inspection, under section 8-11 (f) of the Miami-Dade County code, for buildings that have been in existence for 40 years. Additionally, an inspection is required every 10 years thereafter. Evolve Property Inspections has experienced Level II thermographers ready to complete your 40 Year Recertification commercial electrical thermography inspection.

An Infrared Thermography Inspection
An infrared thermography inspection is a written report of the following electrical equipment that must be provided, as applicable, or as otherwise indicated below:
- Panelboards (except in dwelling unit load centers)
- Control panels
- Meter centers
- Junction boxes
- Automatic/manual transfer switches
- Exhaust fans
Why Thermal Imaging?
Thermal imaging is a technology that allows the InterNACHI-CCPIA INSPECTOR//Level II Thermographer to show you things about a building that no one can show you using other inspection methods. Thermal imaging produces images of invisible heat energy emitted from objects and systems in the building and allows us to measure it. It helps diagnose the problem rather than merely identify symptoms. Sometimes, but not always, it can also identify and document electrical faults before they cause a fire, overloaded and undersized circuits, circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement, and overheated equipment.
