It seems that several inspectors are checking the temperature of breakers in panels…
Here are some things you should understand and be able to explain if you are offering this type of inspection:
Do you realize that a bad connection can exist at a breaker or a problem at a load device that will cause the breaker to get hot AND it will not always indicate a high temperatue when you measure it?
Also do you know what the normal temperature would be for a 30 amp breaker feeding a water heater that has been heating for 45 minutes?
Do you realize that a warm 200 amp breaker in the top of a panel does not always indicate a problem with the breaker or excess current? Do you know what else could be wrong?
