Insulation Problems

Heat losses in a building arise because of differences between indoor and outdoor air temperature. Naturally, heat flows from hot to cold and insulation reduces the speed of this convergence.

 

  • Confirm continuity of good insulation
  • Identify insulation deficiencies or construction issues
  • Detect empty wall cavities
  • Identify areas of missing or poor insulation
  • Detect attic insulation inefficiencies
  • find areas inside the walls where insulation may have fell down or settled
W

Cold Air Infiltration

Reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of your building is a cost effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, increase comfort and create a healthier indoor environment.

 

  • Avoid additional moisture and condensation problems
  • Avoid uncomfortable drafts caused by cold air leaking into the building
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Heat the building more efficiently
  • Prioritize what needs attention first
  • Save money

Water/Moisture Ingress

Damp and mold cause respiratory infection, allergies and asthma. Moisture in the home can be caused by leaking pipes, damp, or leaks into the building envelope.

Visible mold is a problem, however most of the toxic mold floating around our air is invisible to the naked eye.

 

  • Detect water leaks and moisture early
  • Confirm water damage and severity
  • Assess condensation and mold growth potential
  • Dew point and vapor pressure data recorded
  • Improve energy performance
  • Justify maintenance spend

Residential Heating System

Thermal Imaging is an important diagnostics tool pinpointing problems in commercial and domestic heating systems.

Underfloor pipes or pipes behind walls can be located with leakages identified. Heating system performance can be assessed. Trapped air or sludge build-up affects radiator performance, among other things.

Leaks from heating systems can be serious enough to cause significant damage to a property.

UNDERFLOOR Heating System

Underfloor heating systems can be assesed using thermal imaging to detect areas of poor performance.

It cab also be used to identify the location of the heating element under the floor, which is essential in situations where holes need to be drilled, to avoid nasty suprises.
