See Your Home or Building in a Whole New Way
Infrared thermography offers a fast, non-invasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings. It can be used as an important tool in diagnosing plumbing and building envelope water leakage or excessive moisture that can lead to mold growth.
What is Infrared Thermography?
Infrared thermography is the use of an infrared imaging camera to “see” and measure how much thermal energy is emitted from an object.
As a certified Level 1 Thermographer, Cedar Hill can tell where the cold seeps in in the summer and the heat escapes in the winter.
Where to Insulate
By using infrared thermography, Cedar Hill can determine where insulation is needed.
The image on the left shows missing wall insulation below a light switch and next to a fiberglass insulated door. Outside air temp 96° F, inside air temp 76° F
We can perform these types of inspections when there is a 10° F delta in temperature between inside and outside, warm or cold.
Attic pull-downs can be a large source of warm air in the summer as well as heat loss in the winter.
Replacing inefficient wood doors with insulated fiberglass or metal doors is a good investment. With energy prices out of sight, replacement costs can be recovered quickly.
Cedar Hill Inspection uses industry leading FLIR® equipment and software.
