Thermal Imaging can find missing insulation, hidden moisture or electrical hotspots.
Keeping a house warm in cold climates is an energy-intensive task. People often use fireplaces or thermostats to keep their homes at comfortable temperatures. In such cases, the insulation of the house is of critical importance.
A house lacking insulation allows heat to escape rapidly, forcing the home owner to spend money to keep the interiors of their homes or businesses warm. If we calculate the increase in heating (or cooling) costs over a span of months, the costs can be substantial.
Hidden water leaks can become expensive repairs when left undiscovered. For example, water leaking from pipes in a wall can cause serious damage and can even affect the structural integrity of a home or business. In most cases, these conditions remain undiscovered until serious damage has been done. Even if no structural damage mould will certainly be an issue that has to be dealt with.
Hidden behind the walls of your home or business are electrical cables supplying lights and switches. When an electrical circuit is overloaded, or if some type of damage to the wiring has occurred, then hot spots can occur which if not repaired can lead to fires or other electrical issues. Many businesses will periodically check the temperature of their electrical panels and electrical equipment to insure that everything is in good working order. Thermal imagers can expose these hotspots, as the surface of the wall will have a different surface temperature compared to the rest of the wall. Prevention is not only common sense but can save the owner of a building a lot of money.
