What can Infrared Thermal Imaging do for you?
Thermal Imaging can help diagnose problems that the naked eye cannot see. It offers a non-invasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the conditions of buildings by providing immediate high-resolution thermal imagery, revealing potential structural and moisture issues, energy efficiency and even rodent or pest discovery.
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. The higher the object's temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or "heat" radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications.
Infrared Thermal Imaging can be use to detect:
- Hidden moisture or water leaks which can lead to mold
- Plumbing leaks
- Overloaded circuits in electrical panels
- Overheated electrical equipment
- Missing, wet or the lack insulation
- Air leaks around windows and doors
- Even rodent or pest discovery
The list is endless as to what can be seen with Infrared Thermal Imaging.
