Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of infrared thermography?

It can quickly detect water infiltration, air infiltration, mold, overheating, and more – making it a great choice for residential, commercial, homeowners association, and commercial real estate individuals. Use it to evaluate the efficiency of mechanical systems and to identify potential fire hazards. With infrared thermography, you can enjoy improved safety, efficiency, and peace of mind – all without large, costly repairs.

What types of equipment are used in Infrared thermography electrical inspection?

The following are the major primary equipment used:

  • Infrared cameras and optics
  • Thermal imagers
  • Imaging software
  • Temperature guns
  • Surface thermometers
  • Scanning pyrometers
How is infrared thermography different from other methods of temperature measurement?
It does not require any physical contact with the object being tested. Instead, it uses infrared radiation to measure temperatures from a distance. To know better, you may also check out this journal on the National Library of Medicine which states that along with healthcare, IR thermography is a massive plus point for maintenance and building inspection to prevent life-threatening dangers.
How can infrared thermography help detect problems?
In IR thermography, professionals use a special camera that detects infrared radiation emitted by objects. It works on the principle that all objects emit thermal radiation, and the amount and type of radiation emitted vary depending on the object’s temperature. The camera captures this radiation and converts it into a visual image, which displays the temperature distribution of the object. This image is called a thermogram, and it shows the temperature variations across the object’s surface. And once a professional IR thermographer analyzes these images, they can identify any temperature abnormalities that may indicate problems such as energy loss, water damage, electrical faults, or mechanical defects. If you wish to know more about IR thermography and its inspections, you might want to visit thisgovernment website and know better about the process.
What is the cost of advanced infrared thermography services?
The cost will vary depending on the size of the property/structure and the extent of the services rendered. Generally, an infrared inspection of a standard-sized home can range from $250-$600. It should be noted that this number is just an average and shouldn’t be considered a benchmark, since the cost depends on a lot of factors, and for a commercial structure, this price won’t be a good range to compare.
