Infrared Thermal Imaging

I use state-of-the-art infrared cameras to find problems that are not visible to the naked eye. Infrared cameras translate the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale. By evaluating these images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and much more.

Thermal imaging may help diagnose the problem rather than merely identify symptoms and can sometimes, but not always, identify and document: missing or wet insulation; areas of heat loss or air infiltration around doors, windows; overheated electrical breakers or electrical faults before they cause a fire; moisture intrusion which could lead to mold growth; hidden roof leaks before causing serious damage; possible pest infestation; air conditioner compressor leaks; structural defects or missing framing members; failed seals in double pane windows; dangerous flue leaks; malfunctioning radiant heating systems and unknown plumbing leaks or blockage in drain pipes.

It’s not uncommon to find overheated switches to large dining light fixtures with the Edison type light bulbs
