Thermal Image Inspections

 

Despite what you might have seen on television or in movies, thermographic imaging cameras can't see behind walls. Instead, they detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces.

 

Anything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. A thermal camera is able to detect this heat and create a thermal image based on that information. A qualified professional then examines the thermal image and assesses what's potentially going on behind the surface that’s causing the temperature variations in the thermal image.

 

 

Thermographic imaging cameras can detect serious problems the naked eye can’t see, such as:

  • plumbing leaks

  • air duct leaks

  • moisture intrusion

  • inadequate or non-existent insulation

  • heating and cooling losses

  • abnormal heat from an appliance or electrical system

  • unwanted animals

  • poor construction

 

If these problems go undetected they can cause extensive damage to your home.

 

 

 

Insulation

 

The only way to detect insulation problems without tearing down your walls is by using a thermographic imaging camera. A qualified inspector can detect if there is adequate insulation in your walls and attic space by using a thermal camera. During warmer months of the year the inspector is looking for warm spots in the thermal image whereas in the winter they're looking for cool spots.

 

 

Electrical

 

A thermographic imaging camera can identify electrical problems by looking for abnormal heat emanating from an electrical system.

 

Moisture

 

Thermal imaging is also used to detect moisture before it penetrates through interior walls and surfaces. Trapped moisture leads to mould, so the earlier it's caught the better.
