A Picture Can Be Worth a Thousand Dollars

Thermography can offer you and your Dallas home or business the peace of mind that typical visual inspections cannot. Using temperature-sensitive equipment, even the smallest problems can easily be detected. Infrared (IR) has proven extremely effective for the inspection of:

Infrared Applications:

More Benefits of Infrared Inspections Include:

  • Reduce downtime and emergency repairs
  • Reduce man-hours spent on preventive maintenance by pinpointing areas that need repair
  • Locate potential problems in electrical systems prior to start up

  • Reduce casualty loss of equipment
  • Locate heat escape from the roof, door jams, windows, vents, and more
  • Locate hot air in take through same areas from the interior of the building
  • Home heat loss surveys greatly reduce overall heating and cooling costs
  • Present audit findings to potential buyers or sellers of residential homes
  • Locate annoying breezy areas

About Thermography:

Thermography measures surface temperatures by using infrared video and still cameras. These tools see light that is in the heat spectrum. Images on the video or film record the temperature variations of the building’s skin, ranging from white for warm regions to black for cooler areas. The resulting images help determine whether insulation is needed. They also serve as a quality control tool, to ensure that insulation has been installed correctly.

Infrared thermography

In addition to using thermography during an energy assessment, you should have a scan done before purchasing a house; even new houses can have defects in their thermal envelopes. You may wish to include a clause in the contract requiring a thermographic scan of the house. A thermographic scan performed by a certified technician is usually accurate enough to use as documentation in court proceedings.
