Infrared Thermography can be used to observe the temperature of building materials. It helps to determine potential heat loss and water damaged surfaces. Areas of a structure that are wet from water damage will often show cooler than dry, unaffected areas.
What can infrared cameras be used for?
Infrared cameras meet the demands of building diagnostics. They feature immediate high-resolution thermal imagery, which reveals potential structural and moisture issues, energy inefficiency and even over heated electrical issues. Use an infrared camera to find:
Missing or defective insulation
Source of heating/cooling loss
Moisture in building materials can destroy the structural integrity while nurturing mold and insect infestation. Infrared cameras can instantly image entire rooms, inspect hard-to-reach places, reveal wet conditions behind surfaces at the source and then confirm when the area is completely dry.
