While thermal imaging is most often used in identifiying
electrical and mechanical malfunctions, it is increasingly being used to identify structural issues related to
energy efficiency (air seeping around windows and doors) and water leaks - particularly in flat roofs or other
structures where the source of water leaks is hard to pin-point without further structural

By looking at the varying temperatures of the above flat roof, our inspectors can indicate
exactly where water is collecting. Utilizing our thermal indicators, we can pinpoint the exact source and extent
of a water leak.
In today's world, everyone is conscious of becoming energy efficient and reaping the cost saving
benefits of energy efficent window installations result in tax credits. As with every construction
process, the product (in this case - windows) needs to qualify in terms of material and installation. As
you can see from the above thermogram, these newly installed windows are letting a lot of cold air seep
through the edges.
