Any object that has a temperature above absolute zero  -273.15 degrees Celsius emits radiation in the infrared region. Even ice cubes emit infrared radiation as they are well above absolute zero. The difference in range in temperature that the camera detects is shown as colours highlighting the cold and warm areas of the building.

We use a Flir E60bx camera with has a 240 by 320 detector and thermal sensitivity with can detect 0.045 of a degree in temperature change. Together with our extech moisture meter an inspection with our thermal imaging camera can help visualize.

  • Heat loss
  • Detect missing or defective insulation
  • Source air leaks
  • Find moisture in floor and walls
  • Detect mould and badly insulated areas
  • Highlight areas at risk of condensation
  • Locate under floor heating and leaks
  • Detect air locks and sludge build in radiators
  • Check the temperature of radiators to see if they are balanced correctly

All the above problems can lead to damp and mould growth in your home and this is why we recommend thermal imaging your property so we can clearly show you where the problems are located and how you can fix them.

 

This image is where the cameras insulation alarm indicates in green the area where insulation is missing or not preforming and could be a danger area for mould growth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This image shows the relative humidity alarm in blue which indicate an area in the room that is at risk of condensation forming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following video will show thermal imaging in action and how we can help to show you other areas of your building apart from ventilation that might be causing you condensation problems.
