Residential / Commercial Infrared
Building, Roof and Electrical Inspections
Property Condition Assessments - Most property owners and prospective buyers understand the importance of a home inspection, however, few are aware of the many hidden problems that traditional visual inspections can miss. At Infrared Diagnostics we're able to fill this gap by making infrared thermography an integral component of all our inspection and testing services. This technology enables us to provide real-time, non-destructive analysis of roof and building envelop assemblies, plumbing and electrical components, HVAC equipment, in-floor radiant heating systems and, produce graphic reports that deliver a clear understanding of construction and performance problems, environmental concerns, and site-specific repair options. Specific applications include: Real Estate Transactions, General Building Maintenance, Moisture and Mold Surveys, Leak Detection, and Energy Audits.
Construction Defect Investigation - In cases involving problems due to quality and construction defects it's not always in your best interests to rely on the people responsible for a problem to properly diagnose and correct it. At Infrared Diagnostics our expertise in infrared building science and the use of advanced diagnostics equipment provide us with the means to accurately diagnose construction problems and prepare technically astute reports that can be used to ensure appropriate remediation, enforce warrantee issues, resolve contractor disputes, or pursue defect litigation. Reports include details of the investigative process, evidentiary quality thermal images to support our findings, and unbiased repair options guided by your best interests.
Heat Loss Analysis / Energy Audits - With today's high energy prices the cost of deficient insulation and air-leaks can be huge. In addition to excessive energy consumption these performance problems can result in uncomfortable rooms, frozen pipes, ice dams, roof leaks and health issues associated with mold growth on cold wall and ceiling surfaces. To resolve these problems and reduce costs our energy audits provide a thorough top to bottom infrared inspection of your home or building and a comprehensive report that includes: graphic thermal images to pinpoint and quantify problem areas, recommendations for energy efficient upgrades, and a prioritized list of repair options that can be used to correct the problems yourself or hire a contractor with advanced knowledge of exactly what repairs are needed and will yield the greatest energy savings.
Moisture Surveys / Leak Detection - Locating the source of elusive water leaks and mold problems can be a time consuming process that often involves a lot of costly destructive probing and guesswork. The great value of infrared thermography is it reduces the time and effort necessary to inspect structures for water damage and usually requires no demolition of walls and ceilings to find the problem. Using this technique we're able to quickly and accurately track down the source of leaks and moisture damage, identify areas conducive to mold growth, and help our clients develop cost-effective maintenance and repair strategies. Common applications include: Roof Moisture Surveys, Stucco/EIFS Inspections, Leak Detection, Sick Building Syndrome Investigations, Mold Remediation, and Insurance Claims.
Electrical Condition Monitoring / Predictive Maintenance - On average, over 60% of electrical equipment failures and fires are the result of hot spots caused by faulty high resistance connections and excessive current flow that often escape detection during conventional maintenance activities. To reduce these risks, an annual infrared inspection of your facility's electrical equipment enables us to help you visualize and repair these incipient problems to avert potentially costly equipment failures and electrical fires. With this technology our predictive maintenance programs provide a cost-effective, proactive approach to electrical maintenance that improve electrical equipment safety and reliability, reduce maintenance and repair costs and can be used to quantify lower risks for insurance auditors.
