Thermal imaging is one of the easiest and quickest methods to detect energy waste, moisture and electrical issues in the general building fabric. An inferred camera shows exactly where the problems are and help focus the attention allowing you to properly diagnose areas with energy loss without invasive means.
Thermal Imaging can clearly show you where your heat is being lost. It locates cold air leaks, water leaks and poorly insulated areas. It shows exactly where insulation is thin or non-existent so you can target these areas and in turn reduce your bills.
To accompany this technology the camera produces a full graphic and detailed report which can be presented to your insurance company, architect, engineer or contractor. The report identifies and locates problems, verifies repairs have been satisfactorily completed and is also extremely effective when communicating findings to a customer, insurance company or contractor undertaking repair works. Whether you need to restore property from moisture, mould or fire damage you know the value of having comprehensive and accurate information at your fingertips.
What is Infrared/Thermal Imaging Thermography?
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to see and measure thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal or infrared energy is light that is not visible to us because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye-it’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared spectrum everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects like ice cubes, emit inferred. The higher the objects temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or heat radiation and allow us to identify where that heat is located with great accuracy and precision.
Thermal Imaging allows you to locate the following:
- Water leaks.
- Air leaks.
- Underfloor water seepage.
- Roof leaks.
- Condensation build up.
- Chimney cracks.
- Confirms blow in insulation.
- Central Heating leaks.
- Lack of wall and roof insulation.
- Mould & Damp.
