I use Thermal Imaging to find areas in the home that may cost you hundreds of dollars per year. Insulation voids are an efficiency concern. Insulation may appear properly installed; however, poor performance is often present. thermal imaging Insulation compresses with age, which will cause the R-Value (Resistance Value) to drop. I use Thermal Imaging to find Temperature Leaks caused by missing or low levels of insulation. Insulation is what keeps the temperature inside in as you want and keeps the temperature outside out. The difference in these temperatures will be using Thermal Imaging.
Airflow is what heats your home in the winter. Airflow also cools your home in the summer. Air leakage around doors and windows is responsible for as much as 30% reduction in heating/cooling performance. Energy efficiency ratings determine the quantity of air infiltration, however locating points of air infiltration is a much more difficult process. Thermal imaging inspection readily identifies these locations so appropriate repairs can be preformed.
HIDDEN WATER LEAKS
Thermal Imaging can also show leaking plumbing which causes damage to your home. Leaking plumbing causes MOLD. Buyers and Sellers alike; no one wants mold. Mold is dangerous to you families health. Leaking plumbing can also damage the homes structural members and cost you extra money for wasted water.
The small cost to see where these problem areas are can save you thousands over the years. The sooner these problems are addressed the sooner you can start saving money.
WHAT IS THERMAL IMAGING OR INFRARED SCANS?
Thermal Imaging or Infrared (IR) Scan inspection can often help you see and find problems that are invisible to the naked eye. A perfect example of Thermal Imaging / Infrared Scans is in a movie or TV show where the police or military are using Thermal Cameras to track people, vehicles, etc. thermal imaging cameraThe Infrared Camera detects HOT / COLD spots in any substance they scan. As a result, IR cameras are often used to find missing insulation, air infiltration to help tighten up building, hidden moisture leaks, overloaded electrical circuits, overheating mechanical equipment, etc.
Infrared Thermal Inspections have helped save hundreds or thousands of dollars for residential and commercial investors, property managers, home or business owners, renovation contractors, and others by discovering or identifying otherwise invisible problems
Thermal Imaging or Infrared (IR) Scan inspection with a thermal-imaging camera is a powerful and noninvasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of a buildings systems and components – residential or commercial. It quickly identifies problem areas that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
