Thermal imaging can be used to inspect building envelopes for issues such as missing, damaged, or inadequate insulation, air leaks, moisture intrusion, and substandard work. By quickly targeting the source of the problem, thermal imaging inspections can help building owners make informed decisions on repairs.
Thermal imaging is a useful tool as it allows us to assess the thermal performance of a building envelope. It lets us see the amount of energy lost through the walls of the building. Decreasing the amount of lost energy is good financially and environmentally.
Thermal imaging works by detecting temperature through the recognition and capture of different levels of infrared light. This light is invisible to the naked eye but can be felt as heat if the intensity is high enough. All objects emit some kind of infrared radiation, which is one of the ways that heat is transferred.
Our Thermal Imaging Inspection Equipment
We use FLIR high-resolution thermal cameras which are better because they provide more resolution and higher sensitivity than other thermal cameras. For example, the FLIR
FLIR T540 Thermal Camera provide a resolution of 464 x 348. This high resolution makes it a great choice for BREEAM projects that demand high quality reportage with more detailed images.
Our Highly Trained Thermographic Engineers
Level 2 thermography certification is for thermographers who have a lot of experience in undertaking thermal imaging inspections to troubleshoot problems. The Level 2 training takes the previous courses to the next level by adding more advanced infrared theory learning and going further into the data collected in a thermal image. It is worth noting that our Thermographic engineers are trained to Level 3 so you can be sure of the highest quality reportage at all times.
