With the use of infrared camera technology, we can detect potential energy loss spots. We can use thermal imaging to identify areas of potential energy savings by finding heat loss sources. Heat loss is one of the main causes of high utility costs, and a heat loss survey can help reduce this. A heat loss survey may be useful if you are having high energy bills or unexplained cold areas in your home or property. A heat loss survey is useful if you are having high energy bills or unexplained cold areas in your home or property. It is also a great way to assess whether you need a window replacement.
By sensing temperature changes, the thermal camera identifies areas where warm or cold air is leaving or entering your home. These exchange areas can result in moisture, condensation, and mold. A heat loss survey should only be performed in the evening or early morning to get the most precise results. The weather should be dry and there with no wind. We do not conduct a heat loss survey unless the circumstances are perfect. Winter is the best time to conduct a thermographic survey or heat loss survey of a structure since the heating system is in use and the temperature differential between the inside and outside of the building is large enough to allow for accurate measurements. Prior to conducting a survey, the heating system should be running for at least a few days.
By sensing temperature changes, the thermal camera identifies areas where warm or cold air is leaving or entering your home. These exchange areas can result in moisture, condensation, and mould.
The energy loss survey takes no longer than 40 minutes. Usually, it takes place during morning hours or late afternoon when the temperature difference between inside and outside is high. Results with descriptions of issues are emailed within 3 days of the survey.
We will email thermal images and a brief description of potential issues to you.
