Infrared Thermal Imaging is the process of interpreting surface temperatures into a visual image that we can easily observe and interpret. It allows you to pinpoint problem areas in your home without knocking down walls.
How does it work?
Thermal imaging measures radiated IR (infrared) energy and then converts the data to corresponding maps of temperatures, referred to as thermographs. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared.
What can it do for you?
Thermal Imaging can help diagnose problems that the naked eye cannot see. It offers a non-invasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the conditions of buildings by providing immediate high-resolution thermal imagery, revealing potential structural and moisture issues, energy efficiency and even rodent or pest discovery.
Pinpoint water damaged areas quickly
Reduce heating and cooling expenses
Detect poor electrical connections, overloaded circuits and other electrical imbalances.
Locate missing, improperly installed, wet or damaged insulation in walls, floors, and ceilings
Identify water and moisture intrusion
Locate possible pest infestation
Locate unknown plumbing leaks/blockages
Analyze radiant floor heating systems
Heating and cooling duct placement/leaks
Identify air leakage and energy loss
In terms of energy loss, an IR camera can detect:
heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors;
