Using Thermal Scanning to Locate Heat Loss in Your Home
Reducing the amount of heat loss in your home can have a huge impact on your monthly heating bill while improving the comfort of your home. While a chilly basement or a drafty room may be obvious signs of heat loss, Thermal Infra Red imaging is an option for quickly identifying problems that are not easily recognizable. This non-invasive technique can locate missing insulation, air leaks, moisture intrusion, wildlife, and even some structural problems.
How does it work?
The Thermal imaging camera shows the different temperatures of objects and surfaces with an easy to view image. Missing insulation or moisture in a wall can be quickly identified without damaging the surface. The image will show variations in colour that indicate temperature. See some examples here.
Infra Red Imaging can be used to diagnose building problems such as:
Detecting missing insulation
Locating moisture problems, leaks, condensation etc.
Detecting overloaded electrical circuits
Detecting air leakage
Verifying solar panels are functioning correctly
Remotely and safely measuring temperatures
Finding hot spots on equipment
Verifying radiant in floor heating is working
Locating missing heat registers
Locating leaking plumbing and air ducts
Detecting moisture intrusion in a foundation wall
Determining where heat loss occurs is the first step to making your home more comfortable. Once you have identified the problem, you can select the appropriate solution such as installing additional insulation.
