Thermal Imaging Kitchener/ Waterloo, ON
Thermal imaging will help to identify surface temperature variations of the building envelope, which are directly related to problems in structure, moisture content and air leakage. It can also be used to find hidden heating and cooling losses due to moisture intrusion, inadequate or non-existent insulation, and poor construction. Early correction of these conditions can prevent more extensive damage in the future. We will conduct a thorough infrared thermographic scan of each room within the living area of the home including attic (if accessible), roof, walls, floors, foundation and ceilings.
Despite what you might have seen on television or in movies, thermographic imaging cameras can’t see behind walls (or ghost for that matter). Instead, they detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces.
Anything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. A thermal camera is able to detect this heat and create a thermal image based on that information. A qualified professional then examines the thermal image and assesses what’s potentially going on behind the surface that’s causing the temperature variations in the thermal image.
