Infrared

Thermal imaging inspections provide us with a picture of a specific condition of a home or building. Infrared cameras allow us the ability to see and locate what the naked eye is unable to detect. Infrared images can capture thermal anomalies from moisture or water damage, roof leaks, stucco, EIFS, chimney staining and window leakage. Infrared Scans are able to locate water and moisture intrusion in buildings by thermal patterns.

A Building Envelope survey can locate missing or deficient insulation, water leakage or moisture in homes, energy loss from windows and doors and flat roof surveys for water intrusion.

Infrared Inspections can be used as a tool prior to purchase of a home or real estate, before a warranty expires or as predictive and preventive maintenance of a residential home. Thermal Moisture Imaging™ Infrared surveys can pinpoint water damage, by locating leaks in buildings, roofs, and heat loss from missing or deficient insulation.

Applications include electrical and mechanical equipment for overheating, roof systems for wet insulation and building envelopes for excessive heat or energy loss. Specialized applications include any equipment or process where thermal differences can indicate a problem.

Thermal Imaging for Energy Auditing & Home Inspection

Air tightness and thermal imaging testing are important quality control measures when building or renovating a house. Heat losses in buildings can account for up to 50% of the total energy consumption and comes from air leakage through chimneys, attics, wall vents and badly sealed windows/doors, etc.

All new buildings must meet air tightness requirements of the Building Regulations. By reducing air leakage, you obtain a better comfort in the building. The building can also be heated more efficiently to conserve energy and save money.

Detection and Visualization of Air Infiltration and Exfiltration

Adequate air exchange is essential for occupants' health and safety, but most buildings have a far higher rate of air exchange than is necessary. The root cause is often poor design and/or construction which allows air leakage from the inside or outside of the building, or the opposite. The leakage pathway is often complex and, without thermal imaging, extremely difficult to visualize. This also allows the contractors to quickly identify and repair the problem areas to stop the energy loss immediately.

Improved Energy Efficiency

To identify areas of energy waste, infrared imaging has quickly become a valued tool in identifying problems related to energy loss, missing insulation, inefficient HVAC systems, radiant heating, water damage on roofs, and much more. A thermal imaging camera identifies patterns of heat loss that are invisible to the naked eye. Thermal imaging quickly indicates the air leaks within a property and measurement data are easily compiled into a report.

Professional home inspectors and energy auditors are using leading-edge infrared technology from FLIR to perform energy auditing of homes and buildings to improve energy efficiency, thus leading to savings on energy costs.

 

Poor or inadequate insulation, moisture, building envelope leaks, and substandard work are costly to residential and commercial building owners. An infrared camera can help you quickly see where energy efficiency can be improved.

FLIR cameras make it easy to improve energy efficiency and locate repairs with minimal disruption.

FLIR infrared cameras instantly show you what is wet and what is dry. IR cameras can help find the sources of trouble with minimal impact to people and buildings. FLIR infrared cameras are preferred by building experts for fast, reliable, accurate building diagnosis in the entire range of building problems.

 

Thermal Imaging for HVAC & Plumbing

A “whole building” approach is needed to maximize energy efficiency of a building or a home. Indoor environment can be compromised by poor insulation, poorly sealed windows and doors, inadequate or poorly sealed ductwork, plumbing leaks, or other plumbing issues relating to Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.

See the Big Picture

An infrared camera is a practical tool that helps building professionals see the big picture. With FLIR infrared cameras for builders, it is easy to scan an entire building and see the relation of HVAC system, building envelope, and plumbing issues.

And, with FLIR cameras, you get advanced features to help you see how, when, and where energy saving solutions can be implemented. From determining insulation effectiveness to diagnosing faulty ductwork, a FLIR infrared camera helps protect your business from start of a job to completion.

Whether you need to restore property from moisture, mold, or fire damage, you know the value of having comprehensive and accurate information at your fingertips. Insurance companies need information fast to start claims work. Your customers need information so they can get their property restored. And you need information so you can make estimation and reporting trouble free.
