At different times of the day and night, building components show differences in temperature because of differences in mass, voids, moisture content and/or heat loss because heat from thermal changes radiates from these areas at different rates. During thermal transient conditions, we scan the walls with a sensitive infrared camera to detect the sources of heat and record them for later analysis. Since our infrared thermographers use real-time imaging and recording IR equipment, they can immediately determine if and exactly where, problems exist. We then record matching visual imagery with a digital videotape recorder and/or photographic camera for reference purposes.
Excessive moisture destroys structural integrity and creates huge, expensive problems like mold and mildew which can cause serious health concerns. Often, these problems are not obvious until it's too late so if you can discover them early through infrared technology, you can save yourself a lot of money and increase your building's lifespan dramatically.
