Thermal imaging - Building Diagnostics

The infrared technology is particularly suitable for quick and effective detection of energy losses in buildings’ heating or air conditioning systems.

Energy efficancy of a building by detecting air ingress, missing insulation and heat loss
 

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning installations can be checked easily, quickly and reliably with thermal imagers. Just one glance is enough to detect thermal irregularities. Furthermore, leakages in buildings involving underfloor heating and other inaccessible pipes are located precisely without causing any damage. This avoids opening walls or jack hammering up concrete slabs unnecessarily.

We pinpoint air leakage points

 

Reducing air leakage, or the uncontrolled movement of air into and out of a building is also important because it can compromise the efficiency of building environmental systems. While best measured with pressurization testing, thermographic surveys can quickly pinpoint leakage points. Inspections inside and outside of structures, along doors, windows, vents and pipes, immediately show you areas of infiltration and exfiltration
 

What are the benefits of thermal imaging

 

  • Thermal Imaging can provide useful information on the functioning of air conditioning and heating units, and ventilation systems

  • The detection of missing insulation once plastered

  • Even when water pipes are laid under the floor or behind plaster, the heat of the pipes radiates through the surface and can be easily detected with an infrared camera. The exact location of leaks or cracks can be detected without damage to fixtures.

  • Heat losses, humidity and air leaks are instantly visible on colourful thermal images

  • By visualising areas of energy loss, or "thermal bridges", faulty locations are easily located, allowing measures to be taken to prevent condensation and areas of mould growth

  • Evaluation of roofing systems for water leakage is easily achieved with Thermal Imaging. Water retains heat
