Thermal imaging is an excellent non-destructive tool used to aid in identifying water intrusion or leaks in walls, floors, and ceilings. Moisture, if not properly remedied, can lead to building damage, reduced insulation effectiveness and mold. By comparing the differences in temperature between a wet area and the surrounding dry areas thermal imaging can help detect moisture issues that would not be visible during a limited visual home inspection. Whether it’s wet insulation, plumbing leaks or water intrusion a Thermal scan can help locate the problem.
Insulation anomalies are common in construction, both new and old. These deficiencies can lead to higher energy costs. Infrared Thermal Imaging allows us to efficiently scan the home and identify areas that are improperly or incompletely insulated. Because this scan is completed from inside, we can see areas that may otherwise be inaccessible and therefore not visible to a traditional visual inspection.
Home owners are becoming more concerned with the efficiency of their home or building. No matter how big or how small the building we can quickly and cost-effectively identify your potential energy loss.
An Infrared energy loss survey can be used to verify a number of energy loss culprits including: poor building design or workmanship, missing or inadequate insulation, leaky duct work, failed building materials, and much more.
