INFRARED THERMOGRAPHIC EVALUATION
As certified residential thermographer I use a thermal imaging camera during my inspections to;
Identify thermal differences in walls and ceilings to detect insulation that is not performing as designed.
Identify thermal anomaly that may indicate moisture accumulation in evaluated areas.
Identify heating, water heating, and air conditioning systems temperatures.
Identify thermal gradients (hot spots) within electrical panels.
Infrared thermography detects a temperature difference at the surface of
the evaluated areas and components. Thermography is not an X-ray or similar technology. A thermal imager
cannot detect conditions inside evaluated areas and components that do not produce a temperature difference at the surface of the evaluated areas and components. A thermal imager cannot detect conditions behind obstructions, such as furniture, pictures, and other owner belongings, that obscure the surface of evaluated areas
