Benefits of Infrared
Infrared images allow you to see what your eyes cannot in
relation to heat being emmitted or loss from or around an object. This "insight" can have huge impact in
a commercial environment where machinery and electrical components need to operate at a constant state of
productivity. It can also have implicatons for commerical and residential buildings in not only terms of
electrical and mechanical problem detection, but also in the pursuit of conserving energy or finding water
By using thermal imaging as a preventative tool, business
owners, plant managers, supervisors, and homeowners can literally save tens of thousands of dollars in potential
downtime and repairs.
Infrared Thermography for Commerical
For commercial use, infrared thermographic inspections allow
Identify and fix mechanical and electrical problems before
the malfunction affects other components or worse – causes total mechanical failure.
Prevent or reduce production downtime.
Avoid costly and intrusive troubleshooting to identify
problems without shutting down equipment.
Check the effectiveness of equipment installation, as to
ensure proper installation.
Evalute equipment and repairs BEFORE the warranty on the
Provide a safer environment for employees.
Identify ways to consume energy by inspecting potential
faulty equipment AND the energy efficiency of the building itself.
Implement a Preventive Maintenance/Predictive Maintenance
Program, which affects and is required by insurance

Infrared Thermography for Residential Use
For residential use, the benefits of
thermography can apply to mechanical and electrical installations found in homes - although the mechanics and
electrical installations in residents tend to be on a smaller scale. Most common and useful for
residential purposes, infrared inspections can identify two major structural issues:
Identify water leakage (as in the case of
Identify energy loss due to improper installation of
doorways, windows and most commonly improper or insufficient insulation
Identify other “shoddy” construction that allows the loss
All of these benefits are particularly useful when constructing a large home with vary degrees of roof
pitch. In short, Thermograpy allows our energy
auditors to identify areas that can save on future energy bills, whether your goal is to improve the energy
efficiency of your current home or whether you want a home thermally inspected before making a purchasing of
a new home.
