Thermography & Building Inspection


Thermography is the process of detecting and measuring an object's thermal energy with an infrared camera for locating areas of temperature differential in a building or system. In the industrial sector, it can be used to accurately measure if electrical or mechanical operations are within normal temperature ranges. By doing so, we can prevent costly repairs and potential downtime. As such, it can improve manufacturing efficiencies.

It can also manage energy through heat loss analysis, improve product quality by checking on a product's integrity and enhance worker safety through environmental impact surveys. Even cold objects can be measured with thermography as it also measures infrared energy. All objects emit heat. This heat--thermal energy--is not visible to the human eye because of its short wavelength and thus needs to be measured under the infrared spectrum. The process of thermography measures this heat and presents a picture of the heat being emitted. By measuring an object's heat, we can detect anomalies and take possible corrective actions.

Advantages of Thermography

  • Show a visual picture so temperatures over a large area can be compared
  • Catch moving targets in real time
  • Find deteriorating, i.e., higher temperature components prior to their failure
  • Measure or observe areas that are inaccessible or hazardous for other methods
  • Non-destructive test method
  • Find defects in shafts, pipes, and other metal or plastic parts
  • Detect objects in dark areas

Building Inspections

A building inspection will provide you with a better idea about the condition of the property. Knowing the condition of a building will allow you to budget more accurately, and plan for costs down the road -- whether it's for a furnace, an HVAC system, or simply maintenance issues.

Not knowing this information, or worse simply guessing, can have serious consequences and cost you serious money. We provide inspections for light commercial and industrial buildings, multi-unit buildings, residential homes and developmental companies
