Missing or damaged insulation or water infiltration into insulated systems allows excess energy loss at the point of defect. When performed under the correct conditions, thermal imaging is capable of detecting evidence of latent moisture or physical defects due to changes in either the thermal conductivity and/or thermal capacitance of the insulation system.
What Can Be Detected:
•Missing, damaged, or improperly installed insulation
•Energy losses caused by positive or negative air infiltration
•help reduce heating and cooling energy costs
•evaluate thermal performance of retrofits
•identify areas of latent moisture
•detect conditions conducive to mold or insect problems
