IR – Infrared Thermal Imaging
Do you live in an energy efficient home?
We offer an energy assessment of your home to determine areas of energy loss or air infiltration. The energy assessment is free with any purchase, or just $179. We can test your home before and after improvements, such as the installation of replacement windows, so that you can see the results. Our camera and report will determine problem areas and show you the improved areas.
An energy efficient home is good for you, your family, and your wallet.
What is Infrared Thermography?
Thermography is a technology that actually allows us to see thermal energy, or heat! If you saw the movie “Predator,” you saw real infrared video footage! Thermography can be used in any circumstance where the identification of thermal patterns can be used to find something (such as a missing person) or diagnose a condition (such as a poor electrical connection). If you think about all the heat-related activities in our lives, you will see that the application possibilities are huge.
Where does infrared energy come from?
All objects emit infrared radiation as a function of their temperature. This means that all objects emit infrared radiation. Infrared energy is generated by the vibration and rotation of atoms and molecules. The higher the temperature of an object, the more the motion and hence the more infrared energy is emitted. This is the energy detected by infrared cameras. The cameras do not see temperatures, they detect thermal radiation.
You may be surprised to know that thermal imaging can help save you and your household money. By using an energy assessment, our team can help you save energy and money. We use this technology to determine what areas of your home need work. Then, we can use replacement windows to reduce wasted energy and create a more energy efficient home. After we install replacement windows, you can compare the energy assessment results to see how much energy they’ve saved you.
