WHAT IS INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY?
Infrared Thermography is a technique that uses specialized imaging equipment to create visual images of heat. This is especially useful to determine the energy efficiency of a building and to detect problems which cause heat and energy loss.
WHAT DOES THERMOGRAPHY SHOW?
An infrared camera detects heat being emitted from the surface of any object. Thermography is a very effective way to see areas of missing or low insulation, moisture intrusion and to find the source of uncomfortable areas in your home due to air leakage.
WILL THERMOGRAPHY DAMAGE MY HOUSE?
Walls and ceilings are examined in a non-invasive and non-destructive way to discover where heat loss or moisture build up is occurring. No holes have to be drilled to get a reasonable impression of what is occurring within the building structure.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE VerdaTech AS MY THERMOGRAPHY TESTING PROVIDER?
Combining infrared Thermography with other techniques can produce better results. Using a blower door to create air pressure changes in the building is the only effective way to look for air leakage which can be a major reason for heat loss and moisture problems. VerdaTech is one of the few local companies that combine the infrared camera and a blower door during a Thermography evaluation to give the best information. Our trained infrared technician uses a FLIR infrared camera specifically designed for building applications. The blower door and other tools such as moisture meters are used depending on the problem being investigated.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
For most building problems the best time to image is during the colder months when there is a significant difference between inside and outside temperatures which makes for clear and crisp images. During the warmer months, Thermography is more effectively performed at night when temperatures naturally drop.
WHAT DOES THERMOGRAPHY COST?
VerdaTech offers different packages to fit individual situations and needs. We are able to offer the service in combination with the Eco Energy evaluation or as a standalone service. Prices will vary according to individual requirements and desired tests.
