Infrared Thermal Imaging

What is Infrared Thermal Imaging?

 

Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material has a unique thermal signature and when moisture, heat, cold, or wood destroying insects are introduced into the structure the thermal signature changes. The changes can be subtle or dramatic but with the advanced thermal imaging technology the thermal signatures are detectable which helps uncover issues that would normally go unnoticed by the naked eye.

 

Thermal image scanning technology is now being used to evaluate residential and commercial structures. As a non-invasive testing tool it can quickly help discern where there are suspected issues. This can help to limit the areas where time consuming further evaluation and destructive discovery is needed.
