About Infrared Inspection
Traditional building inspection techniques involve drilling holes in walls, removing whole sections of walls to install inspection ports, and other time-consuming and invasive techniques. Using infrared technology, there is no need for these destructive testing methods.
Infrared inspection (or thermography) is a passive and cost-effective heat-sensing technique used to “see” and “measure” the thermal energy emitted by objects that cannot be detected by the human eye.
Thermography provides a means to view systems (electrical, mechanical, building envelopes) under normal operating conditions to identify abnormally warm or cool areas that indicate moisture intrusion, insulation deficiencies and other energy losses.
Benefits of Infrared Inspections
- Fast and accurate detection of energy loss, moisture and electrical issues
- Advance warning of system failures and other potential problems
- Non-invasive and non-destructive
- Minimal interference with building occupants
- No facility shutdown required
- Ideal for predictive maintenance of electrical, mechanical and structural systems
- Cost savings
Given the advanced capabilities of this technology, performing building inspections without the use of thermography is like performing it blindfolded.
With our proven inspection techniques and high-resolution infrared thermography, BDG can quickly provide owners or buyers with an accurate understanding of the building’s structural integrity in order to make informed decisions.
We are also used in litigation and insurance claims to either provide details as to the extent of the claim or provide bid specification for remedial actions. Many commercial and multi-family properties contract us to perform annual inspections to proactively protect their investment.
