Thermal Imaging for Energy Auditing & Building Inspection

Thermal Imaging - What is it?

Thermal ImagesThermal Imaging gives a visual representation of cold areas in a building where heat is lost due to poor building practice or structural defects. This is done by using infrared images from a thermal image camera. Thermal imaging works hand in hand with air tightness testing by giving you a visual illustration of the problem areas as detected by the blower door test.

Air Tightness and Thermal Imaging testing are important quality control measures when building or renovating a house. Heat losses in buildings can account for up to 50% of the total energy consumption and comes from air leakage through chimneys, attics, wall vents and badly sealed
windows/doors, etc.

Detection and Visualisation of Air Infiltration and Exfiltration

Adequate air exchange is essential for the occupants’ health and safety, but most buildings have a far higher rate of air exchange than is necessary.The root cause is often poor design and/or construction which allows air leakage from the inside of outside of the building, or the opposite. The leakage pathway is often complex and, without thermal imaging, extremely difficult to visualize. This also allows the contractors to quickly identify and repair the problem areas to stop the energy loss immediately.

Poor or inadequate insulation, moisture, building envelope leaks, and substandard work are costly to residential and commercial building owners. Energy Surveys infrared camera can help you quickly see where energy efficiency can be improved.

Energy Surveys have professional home inspectors and energy auditors are using leading-edge infrared technology to perform energy auditing of homes and buildings to improve energy efficiency, thus leading to savings on energy costs.
