Thermal imaging inspection, usually known as thermography or IR technology) is used to show you things about your home that no other device can show. It produces images of invisible heat within the house and tell us how huge the heat is. It helps to know what is hiding behind walls. A picture is worth a thousand words said.
Thermal imaging inspection helps in identifying the problem before it goes way too serious. It tells you about the problem that is going to occur before you identify symptoms. It also sometimes, identify the problems in electricity before they catch fire, overloaded and undersized circuits, circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement; missing, damaged and/or wet insulation; heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold; possible pest infestation; roof leaks (before they cause serious damage); air-conditioner compressor leaks; under-fastening and/or missing framing members; structural defects; broken seals in double-pane windows; energy loss and loss of system efficiency; dangerous flue leaks; damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems; plumbing leaks; and overheated equipment.
The color images that are produced by this technology can be added in the inspection to provide supporting visuals. When you own a residential or commercial are, problems regarding thermal loss, electricity loss or fire happen usually. It is important to have a device that can detect these problems before they get too serious. It can be costly if you do not take care of such things. Thermal Imaging is used to find moisture intrusion and loss of the heat in a building instantly and safely with the added advantage of showing them through picture which could describe them in a better way.
The IR (Infrared) cameras capture the thermal changes which happen around and then change them unto heat signatures to by the use of different colors. These colors vary according to thermal energy which is being radiated from the walls or structures being analyzed.
Actually, no one can make the working of electric tools sure until he checks it. If the equipment are not checked timely they can cause you a great financial loss.
These problems are hard to identify by naked eye so it is good to have such device like Thermal Imaging detection so to see the problem before it gets dangerous. One of the reason is you cannot fix what you do not see, so be careful even when the contractor is applying the insulation in construction of your house, you can see it through thermal imaging device. They are also useful for detecting the roof leaks and pinpointing the exact location where the leakage is present. It saves your money in the way that if you did not know the exact place of leakage, you would have spent money on re installation of whole roof.
