Thermal Cameras for Building Diagnostics

The building sector offers the largest single potential for improving energy efficiency.

Infrared thermography is the easiest and quickest method to detect energy waste, moisture and electrical issues in buildings.  An infrared camera shows exactly where the problems are and helps focus the inspectors' attention allowing him or her to properly diagnose areas with energy loss.

 

Thermal Imaging for Building Diagnostics

Poor or inadequate insulation, moisture, building envelope leaks, and substandard work are costly to residential and commercial building owners. An infrared camera can help you quickly see where energy efficiency can be improved. 

FLIR IR cameras make it easy to improve energy efficiency and locate repairs with minimal disruption.

FLIR infrared cameras instantly show you what is wet and what is dry. IR cameras can help find the sources of trouble with minimal impact to people and buildings. FLIR infrared cameras are preferred by building experts for fast, reliable, accurate building diagnosis in the entire range of building problems.

In addition to the most advanced infrared cameras, FLIR offers building diagnostics training for a fast payback. 

 

Thermal Imaging for Energy Auditing & Home Inspection

Air Tightness and Thermal Imaging testing are important quality control measures when building or renovating a house. Heat losses in buildings can account for up to 50% of the total energy consumption and comes from air leakage through sources like chimneys, attics, wall vents and badly sealed windows and doors.

Infrared Thermography for Detection and Visualisation of Air Infiltration and Exfiltration

Adequate air exchange is essential for the occupants’ health and safety, but most buildings have a far higher rate of air exchange than is necessary. The root cause is often poor design and/or construction, which allows air leakage from the inside of outside of the building, or the opposite. The leakage pathway is often complex and, without thermal imaging, extremely difficult to visualise. Thermal imaging also allows the contractor to quickly identify and repair the problem areas to stop the energy loss immediately.

Improved Energy Efficiency Using an Infrared Camera

To identify areas of energy waste, infrared imaging has quickly become a valued tool in identifying problems related to energy loss, missing insulation, inefficient HVAC systems, radiant heating, water damage on roofs, and much more. A thermal imaging camera identifies patterns of heat loss that are invisible to the naked eye. Thermal imaging will quickly indicate the air leaks within a property and measurement data are easily compiled into a report.

Professional home inspectors and energy auditors are using leading-edge infrared technology from FLIR to perform energy auditing of homes and buildings to improve energy efficiency, thus leading to savings on energy costs.

Thermal Imaging for Property & Facility Management 

Infrared thermography is a powerful & non-invasive method of monitoring and troubleshooting the conditions of buildings.

Stop Guessing - Start Seeing

Infrared thermography operates by measuring the infrared energy of any objects surface and producing a detailed visual image showing its temperature profile. Since IR operates without physical contact, it gives building managers a safe, on-line, and cost effective means to evaluate a buildings operating integrity. While many borderline problem areas typically remain undetected during an off-line physical inspection, they can easily be seen using infrared.

Aside from detecting heat and energy loss in structures, it has proved to be an accurate & effective tool in today’s facilities predictive maintenance (PdM) programs.

FLIR Infrared Cameras for Maintenance Professionals

Technology improvements have driven costs down. As a result, the role of facilities maintenance can now include building envelope and energy waste surveys. FLIR offers a wide range of infrared cameras for maintenance professionals. An infrared camera make it easy and cost-effective to capture infrared images and share them in final inspection reports.

Thermal Imaging for Moisture & Restoration

Whether you need to restore property from moisture, mould, or fire damage, you know the value of having comprehensive and accurate information at your fingertips. Insurance companies need information fast to start claims work. Your customers need information so they can get their property restored. And you need information so you can make estimation and reporting trouble free.

FLIR Thermal Cameras Simplify Your Work

From start to finish, FLIR infrared cameras can help you simplify your restoration and remediation jobs. Advanced features help you quickly scan large areas to assess what is restorable. An infrared camera helps you pinpoint water intrusion, find moisture beneath the surface, and document dryness with accuracy and confidence.

Easy Reporting

Busy restoration professionals can speed up surveys with the automated dew-point and humidity alarms. Reporting is also simple, as a FLIR infrared camera includes software that supports templates, spell-check, and easy conversion of reports and infrared images to PDF format for trouble-free emailing.
