Thermal Imaging is an important tool in discovering hidden problems pertaining to moisture, heat loss, and heating system defects. An inspection preformed by a qualified thermographer can detect such problems. By using a trained thermographer not only can the thermographer detect temperature changes but can also diagnose and properly interpret the temperature changes.
Infrared heat is emitted by all matter; the amount of heat depends upon its energy. A thermographer can detect heat emissions using special equipment called an infrared camera and analyze the results to pinpoint problematic spots. Infrared cameras provide images for the inspector, who must then interpret the images.
