Thermal Imaging

When conducting an inspection of a property, we use a Flir infrared camera (or thermal imaging camera) to detect dampness and building failures alongside using a damp proof meter combined with our extensive knowledge. Thermal imaging is a non-invasive tool for monitoring dampness and diagnosing the condition of buildings as we can identify problems early, allowing them to be documented and corrected before becoming more serious nd more costly to repair.

The integrated FLIR thermal imageing camera can be used to monitor and diagnose problems more quickly and save time on site. It provides a new perspective and opens up new use cases, including: detecting heat loss around windows and doors; spotting moisture and missing insulation; identifying over-heating electrical appliances and circuitry; and seeing in complete darkness. This helps the remedial surveyor to understand the problem by supplying a thermal pattern of the defect, which maybe outside the human visible light spectrum.
