Infrared Thermal Imaging Surveys

At Expert Dry®, we believe in using the latest technology to our advantage. That’s why we’re pleased to offer infrared thermal imaging surveys to customers in need of property inspections.

Infrared thermal imaging, also known as infrared thermography, is a technology that utilizes infrared radiation to create images based on the temperature variations of objects or surfaces. It works by detecting and measuring the infrared radiation emitted by objects and converting it into a visual representation called a thermogram or thermal image.

State-of-the-art investigation

Our infrared thermal imaging cameras are equipped with sensors that can detect the different levels of infrared radiation emitted by objects. These cameras can then create a detailed image where the temperature variations are displayed as different colors or shades, allowing for easy identification of hot and cold spots.

When it comes to checking heat or cool loss in buildings or conducting home inspections, infrared thermal imaging can be highly beneficial.

Detection of energy inefficiencies

Infrared thermal imaging can identify areas of heat or cool loss in a building. By scanning the walls, windows, doors, and other structural components, it can reveal energy inefficiencies such as air leaks, insufficient insulation, or thermal bridging. This information can help homeowners or inspectors prioritize and address areas that require insulation improvements, weatherstripping, or sealing.

Cost-effective and non-invasive

Unlike traditional inspection methods that may require destructive testing or disassembly, thermal imaging is non-invasive. It allows for a quick and efficient assessment of a building’s energy efficiency without causing any damage. This makes it a cost-effective option, as it can save both time and money.

Enhanced Safety

Infrared thermal imaging can help identify potential electrical issues. By scanning electrical panels, outlets, and switches, it can detect abnormal heat patterns that may indicate overloaded circuits, loose connections, or faulty wiring. Early detection of these problems can prevent electrical failures, fire hazards, or equipment damage, enhancing overall safety.

Moisture detection

Water intrusion or moisture buildup can lead to significant damage and mold growth in buildings. Infrared thermal imaging can detect hidden moisture by identifying temperature differences in building materials. It can help locate water leaks, plumbing issues, or areas prone to condensation, enabling timely repairs and preventing further damage.

Time-saving and comprehensive

Infrared thermal imaging allows for a comprehensive inspection of a building’s envelope or interior within a relatively short time. It provides a detailed visual representation of temperature variations across large areas, making it easier to identify multiple issues in a single scan. This efficiency can be particularly advantageous for home inspectors, energy auditors, or maintenance teams.

Our infrared thermal imaging utilizes state-of-the-art investigation technology to uncover hidden problems that can adversely affect your health and investment dollars. We pride ourselves on our thorough professional assessments.
