Thermal Imaging

 

The infrared camera offers a non-invasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings - providing immediate high-resolution thermal imagery, revealing potential structural and moisture issues, energy efficiency and even rodent or pest discovery. ThermaCAM® EX320

All objects have a certain temperature and emit waves of energy called infrared radiation.  Hot objects emit more energy than cold objects.  A thermal imager translates these energy waves into a viewable image, which shows a "heat picture" of a scene.  On the screen of a thermal imager, hotter objects show up at one end of the color scale (generally a lighter color) and cooler objects show up at the other end of the color scale (generally a darker color).

 

  

In this example, Thermal Imaging shows that this whole house ventilation fan is a large thermal bridge between the hot attic and the conditioned interior below. The temperature of the entire surface of the louvers is approximately equal to the temperature in the attic – on hot days, this temperature can be as high as 120°.

 

 

Here, uninsulated canned lights provide a thermal bridge between the hot attic and the conditioned interior.

 

 

The IR Camera vividly displays the effects of an uninsulated attic access door - a significant thermal bridge between the hot attic above and the conditioned space below.
