Infrared Thermal Imaging Services
At Alder Creek we are a Level II Certified Professional Thermographer.
Thermal Imaging has been in use for many years. These cameras are becoming a go to for the inspection industry for home and commercial inspectors. Our inspection services regularly include this service to find anomolies that are not visible to the naked eye. Infrared (IR) is an advanced method of a non-invasive way of identifying many problems in a home or commercial building. Thermal Imaging (Infrared) uses heat signatures to identify these problems.
The advantage of using Thermal Imaging is slowly becoming better understood by the clients as to the importance of this inspection.
Anomally high moisture in areas of buildings that could cause structural problems, mold issues, etc. If these moisture areas go unchecked these in time can be not only detrimental to the structure of the home but also the the habitants of the home. We can locate hot wiring due to problems in the electrical circuits. Thermography is a non invasive way of analysis for anomolies in building envelope, electrical applications, moisture intrusion, and many other ways to use a heat signature for detection.
Some of the issues that can be found with an Thermal Imaging Camera (Infrared-IR)
Inadequate or Non-Existant Insulations
Excessive Moisture in Materials
Malfunctioning Radiant Heating
Leaks in Infloor Water Heat Systems
Air Duct System Leaks
Cold Air Infiltration
Overloaded Electrical Services
Possible Pest Infestation
Over heating electrical circuits could be caused by many problems down stream that can be fixed before they turn into a major financial cost or potential fire hazard.
