Warm N Cozy Insulation is the only insulation company in Renfrew County to offer thermal imaging as one of our many services. Although infrared cameras have been around for decades, it is only recently gaining popularity in the field insulation. Once you see what this technology can do, you will wonder how we ever did without it!
Overall, thermal imaging greatly reduces the risk of hidden problems by identifying areas that require further insulation. Although many issues that would not have been found during a standard visual inspection have been detected with an infrared camera, there are some limits to what can be detected by reading thermal anomalies. There are also limitations created by some materials that do not conduct heat adequately enough to emit detectable levels of thermal differences.
With the help of thermal camera under the right conditions with the right procedure the experienced thermographer may detect the following problems:
- Moisture behind a surface
- Leaks in air ducts or plumbing
- Missing or damaged insulation
- Problems with radiant heating
- Unexpected air leaks from exterior
- Problems with sealed windows
