How Thermography Works
Thermal imaging is a graphic representation of temperature variances on an object’s surface area. The thermographer uses the instrument and his or her training to identify anomalous (different) areas to diagnosis exceptions and potential causes.
Infrared does not “see through” objects but rather detects emissions of minute temperature to flag potential problem areas.
Volunteer Inspections, LLC Thermographers are trained to operate and interpret the images and is certified by the Infraspection Institute.
Source and location of hidden water leaks is easy to isolate with and infrared thermal scan. Note the infrared thermal image is overlaid on the standard visual image. Our reports are easy for everyone to understand.
This image evidences air infiltration both under the wall bottom plate and the electrical outlet. Energy studies of all buildings help our clients isolate energy loss and save a small fortune over just a few years.
Overheating Electrical Equipment
Radiant Floor Heating
Infrared makes finding breaks and failure in radiant floor heating coils.
Look at the side-by-side graphic representation below. Note the normal visual image as captured by a 35mm camera. The client wanted to know if there was a leak below the roofing membrane, and there it is.
In the infrared thermal image to the right, the central area of the leaks was apparent in addition to the volume of standing water on the roof decking below the membrane.
