Thermal Imaging Technology for the Home
Cold spots. Hot Spots. Drafty windows and doors.
Imagine knowing where these spots are in your home and identifying exactly where these cold and hot drafts are coming from.
How Do Thermal Imaging Camera’s Work
With thermal imaging cameras, guessing is no longer the case. These high-tech cameras can help pinpoint those pesky drafts in your home that creep up every winter and even summer. Your indoor temperatures — and ultimately, your comfort levels — can almost always be traced back to infrared heat and your home’s insulation and air sealing.
Unfortunately, there’s no right way for homeowners to visually see the issues — at least not until recent years. Thermal imaging cameras clearly show the problem areas in your home with colorful heat-sensitive visuals. Combine these cameras with a trained, healthy home professional, and you’re one step away from achieving optimal home comfort and health.
Once a professional can pinpoint the trouble spot, it can be a relatively simple solution of updating or adding some insulation or might require more labor-intensive measures such as replacing drafty windows and frames.
What Else Can A Thermal Imaging Camera Detect Not only can these cameras detect hot and cold spots, but they can also see and uncover several other issues in your home that might be costing you money.
Ventilation Issues & Glitches
Structural Defects & Cracks
Moisture Detection in Walls
Your home should be a safe place for you and your family. And if your home is older, spending some time investigating where there are potential issues and getting them fixed can not only give you peace of mind, it can help save you money in the long run.
