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 chimneys, attics, wall vents and badly sealed windows/doors, etc.
All new buildings must meet air tightness requirements of the Building Regulations. By reducing air leakage, you obtain a better comfort in the building. The building can also be heated more efficiently to conserve energy and save money.
Detection and Visualization of Air Infiltration and Exfiltration
Adequate air exchange is essential for 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 or outside of the building, or the opposite. The leakage pathway is often complex and, without thermal imaging, extremely difficult to visualize. This also allows the contractors to quickly identify and repair the problem areas to stop the energy loss immediately.
Improved Energy Efficiency
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 quickly indicates 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.
