All objects contain thermal energy and interact thermally with their environments. Thermography is what enables us to see and measure heat. All materials on earth emit heat energy on the infrared portion of the spectrum. Unfortunately, the unaided human eye cannot see in the infrared portion of the spectrum. Thermo graphic, or simply thermal images allow the user to see thermally, revealing anomalies that in turn identify problems in buildings, their component electrical, mechanical, plumbing and waterproofing systems.
There are several ways heat can flow; one of the ways behaves very similar to light energy. We call this heat radiation or infrared. An example we are all familiar with is the heat we feel when sitting in front of a fire. This heat energy travels by electromagnetic waves similar to visible light. When objects are extremely hot, we can see much of this energy that is emitted, and of course we can feel it. When objects are considerably cooler, we can still feel it but we can no longer see it.
What we do?
Moisture in building materials can destroy structural integrity and nurture mould. The first steps in moisture problem remediation are to quickly and accurately locate and remove all sources of moisture. Our infrared camera instantly shows us what's wet and what's dry. IR cameras can instantly find the ultimate source with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and minimal disturbance of inhabitants.
