Inspecting buildings using a thermal imaging camera is a powerful and non invasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings. Thermal imaging technology has become one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for building inspections. A thermal imaging camera can identify problems early, allowing them to be documented and corrected before becoming more serious and more costly to repair.
We carry out thermal surveys for private buildings and commercial properties alike.
A thermal imaging camera records the intensity of radiation in the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum and converts it to a visible image.
Our eyes are detectors that are designed to detect electromagnetic radiation in the visible light spectrum. All other forms of electromagnetic radiation, such as infrared, are invisible to the human eye.
With an infrared thermometer we are able to measure the temperature at one single spot. Our thermal imaging cameras can measure temperatures on the entire image. The cameras we use have an image resolution of up to 320 x 240 pixels. This means that it is equal to using 76,800 IR thermometers at the same time.
A thermal image that includes accurate temperature data provides home owners with important information about the insulation conditions, moisture ingress, mould development, electrical faults, the presence of thermal bridges and the conditions of HVAC systems.
With many years in the building trade we can advise on remedies if we find areas of excessive heat loss.
