Thermographic Inspection

home inspection for maintenanceOne of the most valued services that Snag & Inspect offers is Thermal Imaging using an Infrared Thermal Imaging (ITI) Technology that will help identify any surface temperature variance which may lie below the surface of a wall, or a floor, and other places that are usually out of sight. The technology allows us to see gaps from wall to ceiling; cracks in the walls that are hidden by the rendering or tiled wall finishes, water leaks, trapped moisture and faulty electrical connections and components.

Thermal Imaging is the quickest way in identifying energy loss, missing insulation, inefficient HVAC systems, radiant heating, water damage on roofs and a lot more. Patterns of heat loss that are invisible to the naked eye can be identified with the use of a thermal imaging camera. Thermal imaging allows an immediate detection system of air leaks within a property and measurement data is easily compiled into a report.

Infrared Thermography is a highly effective and non-invasive method of monitoring as well as troubleshooting the actual conditions of buildings. It operates by measuring the infrared energy of any objects’ surface and creating an in-depth visual image displaying its temperature profile. Thermal imaging is an essential tool in energy audits and condition audits. Professional property inspectors and energy auditors are using advanced infrared technology to perform the aforementioned special investigations to further improve energy efficiency which could lead to savings on energy costs.
