Infrared Imaging - Overview
Infrared Imaging, or Infrared Thermography, is a technology that has been around for over fifty years.
This testing procedure is very similar to getting an x-ray from your doctor during a check-up. You Save Green performs infrared testing during each initial energy audit to identify issues. Addressing health & safety issues by discovering poorly installed insulation and vapor barriers can lead to condensation problems and the degradation of the building itself. This can cause rot, mold, and mildew and all of these problems lead to the building being devalued. Infrared Imaging detects heat patterns or temperature changes in objects. This allows our building scientist to properly evaluate and educate you on possible energy deficiencies. Pinpointing areas of air leakage in the "building envelope" is key when trying to solve health, safety, comfort, and energy saving concerns.
Did you know?
Infrared imagery is often a grayscale picture whose scales (or shades of gray) represent the differences in temperature and emissivity (opposite of reflectivity) of objects in the image.
