About Us

Who We Are

ElectricIR™ is a national network of certified thermographers who have been specifically trained in the application of electrical and mechanical thermography.

To become a member of our network each contractor is required to first be certified through Level II or higher so they have the competence we expect of them. Level II means they have studied advanced theory and equipment operation for quantitative thermal imaging and temperature measurement for P/PM, condition monitoring, quality assurance and forensic investigations. We also require them to use a camera with a resolution of 320 x 240 or better to achieve the clearest photos for examination and analysis.

ElectricIR™ is owned by United Infrared Services, Inc., and we are dedicated to the high standards.
