What is Infrared?
Infrared light (thermography) is the use of an infrared camera to "see" and "measure" the thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light not visible to the human eye; instead perceived as heat. With infrared, everything with a temperature above absolute zero, emits heat.
Benefits of Infrared:
- Cost effective – the ability to see problems before they escalate into expensive fixes.
- The ability to see behind walls or inside closed spaces.
- Eliminate the guess work – see proof a problem exists, or find peace of mind if one does not.
- Document the facts, make well informed decisions
- Diagnose not just the extent to but also the source of many of these problems.
- Early detection, reduces costs
- Eliminates the need for destructive testing
Infrared Capabilities and Uses:
- An infrared camera helps you pinpoint water intrusion, find moisture beneath the surface, and document dryness with accuracy and confidence.
- Non destructive confirmation of mold/fungus growth
- Identify electrical problems – overloaded circuits, loose connections and shorts
- Spot HVAC problems
- Improve the efficiencies of heating and air-conditioning systems.
- Find roof damage, missing insulation
- Locate blocked plumbing or leaky pipes
- Check septic tank levels
- Preventative maintenance
- Find insect and animal infestations in walls
- Infrared cameras can also be used to locate areas of extreme heat loss in buildings, allowing for better insulating practices and increased energy conservation.
- Have your newly built home inspected for missing insulation, electrical or plumbing concerns before you take possession
