INFRARED (IR) THERMAL IMAGING SERVICES
Infrared (IR) thermal imaging cameras are quickly becoming an indispensable tool for home and property inspectors. Our services regularly include reading thermal images produced by an infrared (IR) thermal imaging camera for quick and accurate identification of defects that may not always be immediately apparent to the naked eye. Abnormally hot electrical components and connections can be viewed during an electrical inspection. Areas of moisture that may lead to leaks and structural damage can be located based on apparent temperature differences. Heat loss and air leakage in a building envelope, and even areas of insufficient insulation, can be pinpointed quickly and accurately during an energy audit.
HOW AN INFRARED (IR) CAMERA IS USED
Infrared (IR) thermal imaging is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show home and property owners things that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods. An infrared (IR) thermal imaging camera is a versatile, lightweight and cutting edge device that can enhance the understanding of a building's different systems and components. Its ability to read heat as color and then display that information in a way that's easily understood by our clients makes the infrared (IR) or thermal imaging camera an increasingly important tool, which is why we carry one in our equipment arsenal.
ISSUES FOUND WITH INFRARED (IR) CAMERAS
Inspecting for Air Leaks Using Infrared (IR) Thermal Imaging
Infrared (IR) thermal imaging is especially useful when looking for air leaks, including insulation defects, during an energy audit because it allows the inspector to actually view the apparent temperatures in a given area. Read more...
Inspecting for Roof Leaks Using Infrared (IR) Thermal Imaging
Since the 1970's, infrared (IR) thermal imaging, has been used for inspecting flat and low-slope roofs to check for moisture entrapment. Employing infrared (IR) thermal imaging cameras for home and commercial roof inspections is on the rise, with millions of square feet now being inspected using this technology every year.
