Get an infrared inspection to locate and document dangerous and costly problems.
A heat-sensing camera can quickly and cheaply snap a thermal picture that reveals HEAT LOSS.
If you are concerned about heat loss, then you have come to the right place. Thermal imaging can be used to determine heat loss. Thermal imaging can validate the performance and quality of insulation in homes and commercial buildings. With the ever-increasing costs of heat, the return on investing in an energy audit and subsequent repairs becomes more and more compelling. Many homeowners today request thermographic inspection services as part of the overall home inspection program of their steam pipes, oil systems and forced air systems. Thermography cameras provide engineering professionals, maintenance professionals and scientists the ability to perform accurate non contact temperature measurement in determining heat loss.
The cheapest energy is the energy never used – and that's an incentive to seal up houses to get rid of drafts. But you can't see leaks, and the conventional blower tests that are used to find them can be expensive and annoying. Now there's a revolution in draft detection, and it's called thermal imaging. A heat-sensing camera can quickly and cheaply snap a thermal picture that reveals heat loss.
Thermal imaging technology shows where your home is losing heat. The image gives levels of heat in different colors, showing the areas where heat loss is costing you money. By analyzing heat loss, you can take steps to save energy and reduce costs. Common areas of heat loss are around windows and doors, attics and garages -- and any un-insultated walls or ceilings. Large windows and glass patio doors lose more heat than small windows and solid doors because untreated glass allows greater heat loss. The U.S. Department of energy explains that thermography -- also known as infrared scanning -- finds defects and air leaks where heat loss occurs. Energy auditors use thermal imaging to create a two-dimensional depiction of the heat atmosphere around the home. The hottest areas show white, and coolest areas show as black, with differences of color in between. The thermographic image allows the auditor to see any defects in existing insulation in addition to areas of the home with air leaks. This technology is the most accurate when there's a significant difference between interior and exterior temperatures. To save energy and cut your heating and cooling costs.
