“Megger Testing” is a spot insulation test which uses an applied DC voltage (typically either 250Vdc, 500Vdc or 1,000Vdc for low voltage equipment <600V and 2,500Vdc and 5,000Vdc for high voltage equipment) to measure insulation resistance in either kΩ, MΩ or GΩ. The measured resistance is intended to indicate the condition of the insulation or dielectric between two conductive parts, where the higher the resistance, the better the condition of the insulation. Ideally, the insulation resistance would be infinite, but as no insulators are perfect, leakage currents through the dielectric will ensure that a finite (though high) resistance value is measured.
In Layman's term we can test your circuits for those melted fault areas that may have occurred during your fire event. These results are then analyzed and specific circuits can be isolated and replaced to insure that there are no further problems on your affected circuits. You have been through enough. You do not need further loss or inconvenience. If you have had a fire talk to your Adjuster and see if Megger Testing is required. It is normally covered by Insurance since the last thing they want to do is pay another claim a month after you are able to reclaim your domicile.
has the equipment on hand and the expertise to perform your Megger Testing and get those results logged and filed with your insurance carrier as well as the Local Building Department, if required. We know living through a fire is a life changing ordeal. We are here to help you make sure your existing wiring is safe, and of course, to install new wiring as needed as well. We are here for all of your electrical needs. Please call if we can be of assistance.
