What is thermal imaging?
Building and Pest inspections made more efficient using improved thermal imaging.
Building Inspection Thermal Imaging is safe and reveals heat signatures where a photograph is made from light signatures.
FLIR infrared cameras instantly show you what is wet and what is dry.
Popular and proven with a building and pest inspection, an infrared camera quickly improves quality of inspections and can reliably detect and reveal problems such as moisture and see where energy efficiency can be improved.
Infrared thermography is the easiest and quickest method to detect energy waste, moisture and electrical issues in buildings.
An infrared camera shows exactly where the problems are and helps focus the inspectors’ attention allowing us to properly diagnose areas.
Why is thermal imaging beneficial to an inspection?
Thermal image cameras take the mystery out of building inspection and are used to quickly detect heat differences or heat transfer on the surfaces of the various building objects, usually floors, walls and ceilings.
The images assist in safely identifying water leaks, termite activity or termite damage with great success.
We Have Upgraded Our Thermal Imaging Camera
A new purchase this week, we upgraded our “Thermal imaging camera” to the “FLIR” E5xt.
An excellent, helpful camera giving us the ability to instantly detect and validate temperature differences ranging from -20 deg through to 400 deg.
This is a perfect thermal imaging camera for uses within the building and construction industries to discover unseen issues.
The FLIR E5xt also gives us the ability to easily and quickly wifi images straight to our smart phones.
Confirmation: Even though the stain was visible to the naked eye, we were able to verify that there was still a moisture penetration issue and that the stain wasn’t old.
Again visible evidence of moisture confirmed to be an ongoing problem.
Less obvious visible damage in a wall behind a shower stall. Water was found to be leaking from the shower out into the hallway, saving the purchaser thousands of dollars.
