Detection of air leaks and water infiltration
The detection of air leaks and infiltrations today requires the high technology of infrared cameras, its accessories and the analysis software that accompanies them.
The Thermal camera detects the infrared radiation that characterizes the heat. The images produced are excellent, they highlight the cold -temperate – warm areas indicating with unprecedented precision, the areas of potential air and water infiltration.
The power of the analysis software accompanying thermographic camera is such that we can indicate the exact temperature of each color returned.
Thermography by Elite Caulking
The thermographic inspection
Elite caulking, your North Shore caulking company recognizes the inspection expertise inthermography. Realizing that while our job, caulking, solved the problems of air leakage and water infiltration from windows,it was not the same for all parts of the house. Roof, solin, chimneys, plumbing ducts, air ducts, basements, micro-wall cracks, electrical system.
Air leaks, as well as water leaks and runoff are identified.
Indeed, thermography applications for the analysis of building structures concern as much:
- The insulation voids,
- Air infiltration,
- Structural problems,
- Insect pests,
- And sanitation.
Thermographic inspection is carried out by an ITC certified inspector who produces a detailed thermographic assessment and a list of suggestions to correct detected air infiltration.
The ITC’s Infrared Thermography Certifications are world-renowned. They are designed to exceed the requirements of international specialty standards.
The relevance of this certification:
- Checks and validates the thermograph’s professional abilities.
- It is a world-renowned label.
- Certifies that the thermograph has fully assimilated the techniques but also … the limits of infrared thermography.
The infrared camera or thermal camera
Infrared thermography involves transforming an infrared image into a radiometric image, which allows temperature values to be read. Several technologies are present in the thermal imaging camera market. Elite calibration favours FLIR cameras because their infrared sensor can measure temperature at each point in the image and not on a field like some other brands. In other words, every pixel of the rendered image is A THERMOMETER! When you know that our camera captures in High definition, the information collected is simply incredible … The accuracy of the measurements reported, the speed with which one can operate is surprising. The image obtained, allows an immediate diagnosis, the problem is immediately identified as well as its extent …
Caulking a concern as economic as it is ecological
Since the oil crises and the awareness of the need to manage natural resources, people have been paying more attention to the problems of air and water infiltration; causes of heat loss, energy waste. Extra cost of heating and deterioration of buildings.
If the caulking of windows and doors is a step that has shown its effectiveness, and its economic relevance,the detection of other air and humidity losses is an indispensable supplement especially for houses that are a little older or less isolated and whose energy balance has not been achieved.[message type=”success”]
