Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging cameras for building applications are powerful and non invasive tools for monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings. It is very useful tool to find areas of water damage and lack of insulation in residential buildings. With a thermal imaging camera you can identify problems early, allowing them to be documented and corrected before becoming more serious and more costly to repair.

FLIR thermal imaging cameras:

  • Are as easy to use as a camcorder or a digital camera
  • Give you a full image of the situation
  • Identify and locate the problem
  • Measure temperatures
  • Help you find faults before real problems occur
  • Save you valuable time and money

The thermal imaging camera detects infrared radiation that would be otherwise invisible to the naked eye.

LED Retrofitting

Retrofitting with LED is one of the newest and most efficient ways to save energy and money. Kellenberger Electric Inc. will replace your old light bulbs and ballasts with the newest LED technology. Please see some of the projects we have completed in our website gallery. These projects include Elgin Community College, Judson University, Wauconda Public Library, Elgin Fire Station #2, Elgin East Side Rec Center.

Kellenberger Electric Inc. was instrumental in the following case study:

LED Retrofitting

Case Study: Wauconda Area Library

After months of vetting potential solutions for reducing his lighting/ energy/maintenance costs, Tom Kern, Director of the Wauconda Area Library, chose GNP Energy & LED Lighting’s “Smart Retrofit” LED light engine. “Reusing our parking lot’s existing fixtures, and simply replacing the old bulbs/ballasts with the new technology gave us the biggest value we could find.” GNP’s retrofit consumes 84% less energy than the old 400 watt HPS bulbs, while expected to last in excess of 22 years and producing a 40% increase in light output.

GNP’s American-Made “Smart Light” includes a built-in option that allows for an additional 50% reduction of power and light, after the first 6 hours of run-time, allowing for additional energy-savings during late-night, when maximum light levels are not required. A Patented secondary cooling system facilitates a life-expectancy of 2 to 3 times longer than other LED’s. Its modular design allows for it to be used in 99% of existing light fixtures. “We’re very pleased with the lights” said Tom Kern.


  • Savings: Annual energy & maintenance costs for 5 parking lot lights decreased by $1,383.00
  • Costs, Incentives, ROI: 85% of the total project cost recouped in first year, including ComEd rebate incentive monies. ROI at 1.2 years.
  • Maintenance Costs: All but eliminated. Plus the LEDs are more vibration/vandal-resistant than conventional bulbs
  • Life-Safety: Increased light output and clarity provide a higher level of safety/security.
