Infrared Diagnostics

One of the technological components we rely on for effective and accurate testing is infrared thermography. This thermal imaging tool is used in all of our diagnostic evaluations. We use it to inspect the air flow and efficiency of a home, including the basement, attic, and hard to see nooks and crannies. With an infrared camera we don’t have to guess at the cause of air leaks and energy loss, we can see it and record the results.

How Does An Infrared Camera Work?

Infrared cameras detect the radiation emitted by all objects. Since the amount of infrared radiation increases with temperature, thermography lets us see temperature differences. As you can see in the image below, red and yellow show heat radiating into the colder, blue surroundings. This shows heat loss and identifies area that need to be insulated or sealed.

Infrared Thermography finds water leaks, missing insulation and air leaks in your home.
