Benefits of Infrared Inspections
Knowing as much as possible about your property gives you the critical information you need to identify costly hidden damage or validate a sound investment. This makes infrared building inspections an extremely cost-effective part of the decision-making process.
Unlike many commercial building inspection techniques, infrared inspections are completely non-invasive, which means there is no risk of damaging any aspect of the property and minimal disruption.
Other benefits include:
- Advance warning of a potential problems and system failures
- Prevent lost production time
- Increase energy efficiency
- Reduce safety incidents caused by unexpected system failures
- Reduce operating costs
- Ideal for predictive maintenance of electrical, mechanical and structural systems
Exterior building inspections – We thoroughly evaluate the exterior wall system of buildings for water intrusions that may have damaged the exterior sheathing and/or structural components to effectively identify potential hidden defects.
Interior building inspections – With our extensive knowledge and use of high-resolution infrared cameras, we can quickly pinpoint the exact location of interior water intrusions with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and with minimal disturbance to the occupants.
Commercial roof surveys – Infrared roof inspections are a non-contact and non-destructive testing method to determine active roof leaks. The infrared camera enables a professional thermographer to scan large areas of the roof from a distance.
Energy audits – Our energy audits are the fastest and most effective non-destructive method of assessing the energy efficiency of residential and commercial structures and HVAC systems. Infrared thermography can identify and address areas where heat loss and moisture intrusion are negatively impacting building performance.
