Thermal Imaging


Forward looking infrared (FLIR) is an imaging technology that senses infrared radiation.

We have now purchased a FLIR multi purpose infrared camera from
FLIR Systems a global leader in infrared cameras. This camera can
detect, spot and measure temperature differences over entire surfaces,
it produces instant, point-and-shoot JPEG infrared imagery,
that carries all required temperature data.
The camera enables us to analyse the image and create reports in PDF format.
It has the ability to see things that are invisible to the naked eye.

We can now find:
  • Cold bridging
  • Missing Insulation
  • Water leaks
  • defects in radiators
  • Under floor heating pipe faults
  • Air leakage (during blower test)

Thermal Imaging for Building Diagnostics
Poor or inadequate insulation, moisture, building envelope leaks, and substandard work
are costly to residential and commercial building owners. An infrared camera can help you
quickly see where energy efficiency can be improved.
Infrared thermography is the easiest and quickest method to detect energy waste,
moisture and electrical issues in buildings. An infrared camera shows exactly where
the problems are and helps focus the inspectors' attention allowing us to
properly diagnose areas with energy loss.
