Thermal Imaging for A-Pro Greater Montgomery Home Inspection Clients

ūüėܬ†¬†Serving the entire Tri-County Area

 

Air Tightness and Thermal Imaging testing are important quality control measures when buying an existing home or renovating a house. Heat losses in buildings can account for up to 50% of the total energy consumption and comes from air leakage through chimneys, attics, wall vents and badly sealed windows/doors, etc.

At A-Pro our detection and Visualization of Air Infiltration and Exfiltration is state of the art.

Adequate air exchange is essential for the occupants’ health and safety, but most buildings have a far higher rate of air exchange than is necessary. The root cause is often poor design and/or construction which allows air leakage from the inside of outside of the building, or the opposite. The leakage pathway is often complex and, without thermal imaging, extremely difficult to visualize. This also allows A-Pro home inspectors to quickly identify and report the problem areas so you can make necessary repairs and stop the energy loss immediately.¬†

All new buildings must meet air tightness requirements of the Building Regulations. By reducing air leakage, you will obtain a better comfort in the home or building. The building can also be heated more efficiently to conserve energy and save you money.

 

 

 

Improved Energy Efficiency

To identify areas of energy waste infrared imaging has quickly become a valued tool in identifying problems related to energy loss, missing insulation, inefficient HVAC systems, radiant heating, water damage on roofs, and much more. A thermal imaging camera identifies patterns of heat loss that are invisible to the naked eye. Thermal imaging will quickly indicate the air leaks within a home and then measurement data will be compiled into a report for your understanding of the problem areas. 

Our A-Pro Long Island and energy auditors are using leading-edge infrared technology from FLIR to perform energy auditing of homes and buildings to help our clients improve energy efficiency, thus leading to savings on energy costs. 

Thermal Imaging for HVAC & Plumbing Problems

¬†A ‚Äúwhole building‚ÄĚ approach is needed to maximize the energy efficiency of your new building or home. The Indoor environment can be compromised by poor insulation, poorly sealed windows and doors, inadequate or poorly sealed ductwork, plumbing leaks, or other plumbing issues relating to Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.¬†

A-Pro Long Island Home inspectors Infrared thermography operates by measuring the infrared energy of any objects surface and producing a detailed visual image showing its temperature profile. Since IR operates without physical contact, it is non-intrusive, on-line, and cost effective means to evaluate a buildings operating integrity. While many borderline problem areas typically remain undetected during an off-line physical inspection, they can easily be seen using A-Pro Long Island Home inspectors infrared technology.
