Infrared Thermographic Building Heat Loss Inspections
This type of infrared scan can identify heat loss issues in the building envelope. Areas of unwanted heat loss due to insulation issues and building air leakage can be located with great accuracy. In building heating conditions, the exterior walls of the building are scanned using infrared thermographic technology. Areas that are leaking valuable heating dollars are identified. Infrared images and photos are taken of the location. All heat loss areas are then detailed in a full colour report. The client is delivered printed and electronic copies of the report providing valuable information on where repairs or corrections are needed the most.

Infrared Thermographic Electrical Inspections
Nobody wants an electrical fire. As well, no one likes wasting money to maintain an inefficient electrical system. An infrared electrical system survey is designed to identify system ?hot-spots? and other unwanted conditions without question. Licensed electricians perform each inspection. Electrical panels, switches and bus ways are scanned for any signs of unwanted or anomaly heating. The end result is an inspection report detailing exactly what is wrong and where. Each anomaly condition is also prioritised with severity. The chance of an electrical fire is reduced and the overall electrical system reliability is improved.

Infrared Thermographic Roof Surveys
Most low slope roofing systems are made up of a bottom decking material, layers of roof insulation and a top membrane layer. The system works well as long as all materials remain dry. A roof leak or membrane puncture may induce moisture from rain and other elements. Once moisture is present in the insulation layers it may never dry out. Moisture in the roof assembly makes for poor insulation properties of the roof and will rot to cause more damage if this condition is not corrected. An infrared roof survey can identify areas of moisture infiltration into the roof assembly. A scan of the roof after a warm, sunny day will locate these problem areas within a couple of inches. During the scan infrared images are taken, areas of moisture infiltration are identified on the surface of the roof with paint. A CAD drawing identifies the suspect areas on the roof with dimensions. A full colour report provides all of this valuable information to the client.
