Benefits of Thermal Imaging
- Benefits of Thermal Imaging
Infrared thermal imaging has a number of applications across a variety of industries, and though using it to check whether your sweet potato fries are too hot to eat is possible, its really not the best use of this innovative technology. Offering Arvada homeowners thermal imaging surveys, in addition to our comprehensive home inspection services, allows us to quickly and accurately detect building flaws and areas of concern in regards to electrical, plumbing and insulation components. By showing surface temperatures of solid objects, like solid walls and electrical boxes, thermal imaging easily shows the differing ranges of temps within that material. The benefits of thermal imaging for either home or business use include:
The Increased Savings By Reduction in Energy Usage
According to various recent studies, Americans was about 58% of the total energy we produce in this country. Where some of that is due to bad habits, such as not turning off the TV or lights when no one is in the room, a good portion is from the energy-inefficiencies of our homes themselves. Thermal imaging helps show where energy is leaking through gaps and seams around windows or doors and where insulation is lacking. Thermal imaging shines a spotlight on those areas that you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise.
Protection against problematic structural components
Overheated electrical boxes, light fixtures and wiring can prove to be a dangerous issue if left undetected. We can use thermal imaging to determine whether your home’s electrical system is working as it should, ensuring the home or business owner of its safe operation.
Insurance against growing problems
Small plumbing leaks can create pretty large problems. By being able to detect even the tiniest changes in temperature, caused by dripping or running water, we can help a resident avoid structural issues or damage and the growth of mold.
