Thermal imaging is used for moisture detection, heat loss, air leakage and detecting many other defects in buildings that will show up on a thermal image. It may also be used to analyze mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems without the need to physically remove these systems in the building.
Thermal imaging is a quick, non-invasive method to discover moisture intrusion within a building. The image analysis will help us to better identify materials with moisture problems even when hidden. It may also detect areas with air leaks or poor insulation that may lead to a potential problem. Most indoor moisture problems will result in mold, so it is very important to detect all elevated moisture levels in a building. Thermal imaging may also be used to detect building envelope issues in your building.
The thermal images are analyzed with thermal imaging software by a Certified Thermographer to produce a report. We use Flir cameras and Flir software in our analysis. We have certified level 1 Thermographers through ITC on staff.
