Thermography, is a quick and reliable method of discovering construction failures in buildings. With our high intensity infrared camera we can locate and acurately pin point construction defects, escaping heat, or ingress of draughts, nothing escapes the thermography process.
With the aid of our equipment, we can work with builders, to effect repairs to both old and new built properties that suffer from poor insulation levels, building defects, or abnormally high energy costs. The coloured monitor and temperature display combine to make the invisible, visible Heat losses, humidity and air leaks (both in and out) of the structure are made visible on colourful thermal images.
Heat losses caused by undesirable draughts, and structural air leaks from poor air tightness can easily account for 30% of the buildings energy losses. Thermography will show where the warm air is leaking from the building, through construction joints, around windows, door frames, or escaping into the cold attic space through ill fitting loft hatches or poorly installed loft insulation.
The process will also identify the presence of void spaces within the buildings external envelope, where insulation has been missed out, sagged or slumped within cavity walls, timber frame studs or roof voids, all can be accurately detected using an infrared thermal imaging survey.
