About Infrared Thermal Inspections
About Thermal Imaging
What once was only a military or scientific technology, Infrared Imaging is now being used in commercial, residential, and even medical applications. Infrared Thermal Imaging technology combined with a traditional inspection provides a view like no other. With Infrared Thermal Imaging, one can see beyond the spectrum of "natural light."
Everything has a surface temperature and infrared thermal imaging allows us to 'see' the temperature of those surfaces. The images seen are then interpreted and further investigated.
We are limited to seeing light only in the visible light spectrum called white light. This is the light that is being emitted by our sun or an artificial source such as a light bulb.
The infrared spectrum is invisible to the naked eye without assistance from technology. With an infrared camera, we are able to see the vital information provided by the infrared spectrum and surface temperatures. It is this ability to 'see' these surface temperatures that allows us to more accurately identify potential, and immediate, problems that would have otherwise been missed.
Roof or plumbing leaks airflow such as cold air seeping under a door or warm air leaking from central air ducts, all can be detected with an infrared camera. Because these and other issues exist in hard to view places (such as behind walls), the use of Infrared technology allows us to detect where a problem area is typically without the need for any invasive investigation damage to the structure.
As a Level I certified Thermographer, our infrared scanning can allow us to more-accurately identify problems and provide you with a level of service that increases the accuracy of correctly identifying problems before they become expensive or unmanageable and can save you time and money.

The typical US family spends over $1600 a year in utility bills and a large portion of that energy is wasted! Find out more by clicking the link below to view the PDF developed by the US DOE Department of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
