Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera allowing us to see and measure thermal energy emitted from an object. In the infrared portion of the spectrum, all materials on earth emit heat energy. Unfortunately, the unaided human eye cannot see the infrared. Thermographic, or simply thermal image, allows the user to see thermally, revealing anomalies that in turn identify problems in the building and their component electrical, mechanical, plumbing and waterproofing systems.
Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye, it is part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. In the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. The higher the object’s temperature, the greater the infrared radiation emitted.
Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Today’s infrared cameras cannot only see in real time but can also record infrared images and measure the temperatures of target objects quite accurately to within 1/10 of a Fahrenheit degree or better. Points of possible concern show up clearly as hot or cold in relation to their surroundings. Recorded thermal images can be easily inserted into reports and emailed, greatly facilitating communications among traders, attorneys, and other professions.
They serve as an invaluable, rational, evidentiary data in cases involving controversy. A picture says a thousand words, and infrared thermography is the only diagnostic technology that lets you instantly visualize and verify thermal performance. Our infrared cameras show you thermal problems, quantify them with precise non-contact temperature measurement, and document them automatically in seconds.
Every material has a unique thermal signature and when moisture, heat, cold, or wood destroying insects are introduced into the structure the thermal signature changes. The changes can be subtle or dramatic but with this thermal image scanning technology, the thermal signatures are detectable where they wouldn’t be able to be seen with the naked eye.
What can an infrared camera do? The infrared camera can be used inside, as well as outside to detect symptoms and signs marked by a temperature difference on a surface. The camera’s capabilities are listed below:
• Air tightness testing
• Building envelope thermography
• Dew point thermography inspection
• Door seal inspection
• Floor heating thermography
• Heating thermography inspections
• Moisture thermography inspections
• Roof moisture thermography
• Wall seal heat loss inspection
• Covered openings search in walls
• Due diligence thermography
• Energy investigations
• Work documentation, quality control (before and after repair)
• Checking drying efficiency of walls, floors, ceilings
• Distant heating system inspection
• Home electrical inspection
• HVAC system performance and repair
• Indoor environment Inspection
