This is a non-destructive testing that makes visible the heat differences across the surface of building and components from heat transfers.
We use the Infrared Inspection tools in conjunction with state of the art nondestructive moisture meter to locate hidden defects and potential problems that a typical home or building Inspection Company cannot show us.
The Thermographer uses an infrared imaging camera to see thermal energy emitted from an object or surface. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible to the human eye. It is the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat.
Conduction – Heat transfer though or between solids.
Convection – Heat via fluid.
Radiation – Heat transfer via Electromagnetic wavelengths.
