Thermal imaging cameras see temperature changes and differences in real time that are invisible to the naked eye. Thermal cameras cannot see inside walls or ceilings. This allows testing without requiring destruction or contact. Thermal cameras are used for mold inspections as no exterior or interior finishes need to be taken down, and large areas can be inspected in a short time. Thermal imaging cameras have become a common inspection tool.
A thermal imaging camera detects small temperature differences and displays a picture of these differences so that we can see them. They work indoors and outdoors, and on wood, concrete, drywall, electrical wiring etc.
- Leak and humidity detection
- Floor heating and building envelope thermography
- Air tightness testing
- Door seal inspection
- Wall seal heat loss inspection
- Moisture, within the structure, floor and roof thermography inspection
- Covered openings searches within walls
- HVAC, electrical systems inspections
- Pest inspections
- Missing insulation
- And more.
Thermal imaging inspection can be used for:
- Leaks and heat loss through the door.
- Wet basements and crawlspaces, typically from a foundation leak or equipment failure causing a flood.
- Wet walls or floors from pipe or roof leaks.
- Electrical problems, inadequate overload protection, and dangerous, amateur-performed wiring connections.
- HVAC issues, blocked chimneys and unsafe exhausts have been discovered.
- Heat losses have also been commonly found arising from poor maintenance of surfaces, masonry, plumbing, wiring and broken fixtures. Inadequate caulking and poor weather stripping. Poor ventilation in attics, causing excessive interior moistures, leading to mold growth.
