With building and energy costs rising it is becoming increasingly important, if not mandatory, to assess building conditions invisible to the naked eye.
Infrared thermographic inspection is a powerful and non invasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the overall condition of buildings.
Utilizing state-of-the- art technology we can evaluate thermal variances in compressed insulation, moisture accumulation in building materials, infiltration and exfiltration through windows and doors, leaks in floor heating systems and many other applications directly related to the building envelope.
Energy conservation and LEED certification are increasingly important to building and facility managers and real estate investors/developers. For quality control purposes, many architects and developers and engineering consultants are specifying post-construction infrared testing to confirm the quality of workmanship and building materials. Whether for a full building commissioning or basic acceptance testing, using infrared thermography to scan the building envelope and roofing systems helps to evaluate the new building’s performance. In planning for retrofit and restoration or re-commissioning projects, infrared thermography helps us to fully understand how buildings operate under extreme conditions so that we can reduce heating and cooling costs and increase overall energy efficiency.
Building envelope assessments are best conducted when the temperature is well below freezing and there is no precipitation. Therefore it is important to schedule your assessment a week or two in advance so that our technician can choose the optimal evening to provide the most accurate readings.
IRIS inspectors use the latest high definition infrared imaging equipment to investigate, heat/cooling exfiltration, and/or moisture and compile the information into a comprehensive report to help you pinpoint repairs that are required.
