IR – BUILDINGS
Building applications range from the fairly straightforward, such as wet roof insulation, to advanced building science studies. Building envelopes, heating and cooling systems, electrical systems, insulation, pest infestation, structural integrity, and many other aspects can be studied using infrared technology.
As with all infrared inspections it is also important to understand the theories involved in how infrared radiation works and how heat transfer is affecting the objects in a thermal image. Concepts such as emissivity, thermal reflections, thermal conductivity, transient heating and cooling, and environmental effects are crucial to the identification and diagnosis of building problems
