Benefits of Infrared Imaging

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 leaks.

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 Use

For commercial use, infrared thermographic inspections allow companies to:

  • 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 equipment expires.
  • 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 companies nationwide.
  • Comply and purse goals of being an “Energy Star Partner.”

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 roofs)
  • 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 of energy.

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.
