WHY GET THERMOGRAPHY INSPECTIONS?

4 reasons for all seasons

Detecting Faulty Electrics

As is the case with most electrics, you won't be able to physically see the wires most times. Thankfully, you can see everything with our thermography inspection service.

Finding Damp & Mould

It is easy for damp and mould to creep into a property, leading to a larger and more expensive problem without a thermography inspection.

Ensure Safety

A thermography inspection is the easiest way to assess and diagnose a wide range of different issues which makes it an indispensable service.

Save Money

Although you do have to spend money to get our thermography inspection service, the savings from it are substantial in the long run.

HOW DOES THERMAL IMAGING WORK?

We have provided this video that outlines the inner workings of a thermal imaging camera, and how it uses infrared technology to produce thermographic imagery.

Thermography Inspections

A thermography inspection is an easy and convenient way of analysing and assessing something to check its operational health without interruption or damage to the item in question.

A thermal imaging camera uses infrared detection technology to produce a thermogram. A thermogram is a visual representation of infrared radiation as a heat signature which is represented through a colour spectrum on a built-in display on the thermal imaging camera.

A thermal imaging survey is non-intrusive and is also referred to as an ‘NDT’ test. An NDT test stands for nondestructive and refers to the fact that a thermographic inspection does not require anything to be taken apart, have things removed and can even test for heat anomalies while something is functioning, making it a very useful service. Another aspect of a thermal inspection is that you can see a problem before it escalates. This allows you to be able to perform predictive maintenance. When conducting predictive maintenance it can help to maintain a greater level of energy efficiency through early fault diagnosis. When an infrared camera is applied to a building it can also highlight air leakage that has been able to escape through building envelopes. 

Accurate results from thermal imaging inspections

When you are unsure of whether something is not functioning as it should or has experienced damage that has affected its function anyway, then this is the service you need. Thermography inspections will be capable of giving you accurate and informative answers that can save time, money, blood, sweat and tears that you may experience trying to diagnose an issue without this service.

One of the most common uses for thermographic cameras for thermography inspections is a property survey. But this is a very generalised term and doesn’t educate people on the many uses for a thermal inspection within and around a property. It could be used for an inspection of a heating system such as a traditional boiler-centric heating system, an air conditioning unit system or even our thermal imaging camera for underfloor heating too. When observing these heating systems it is a walk in the park to identify cold spots with our heat loss survey. Whereas most anomalies will be caught due to an excess of heat, with our thermal imaging leak detection, it is possible the leak will be found due to the presence of cold water. The application of thermal imaging to electricals allows you to see things you would never be able to with only the naked eye. This can also be clearly seen when viewing our electrical thermography article too.

If you have already investigated and became part of the green revolution by having solar panels installed on your property and have experienced an issue with it working correctly, you can resolve this easily with this service. A thermal imaging camera can locate the source of the problem so it can be fixed without searching high and low. Faulty photovoltaic cells aren’t safe for long with Direct Thermography on the scene.

Still within the area of roofs, if you have noticed that you are spending a greater amount on household heating bills, this could be because of problems incurred with insulation. There will be large amounts of insulation found in attics and roof spaces but as a roof is high up it is also somewhere where birds and other animals will choose to nest. This could lead to them damaging the roof and the insulation which is why you’re having to fork more money out.

But we shouldn’t only blame animals, a roof will take a beating over time from the elements and the seasons so it is commonplace for a roof to become worn.
You will be able to see the exact locations of any breaks in your property’s armour which can make the process of resolving this issue much smoother.

As well as these particular applications of thermographic technology, it can also be used for automotive and aerospace assessments, medical and veterinary purposes and other industries and services that can be found on this website.

THERMOGRAPHY INSPECTION FAQS

A thermal imaging, or FLIR, camera works by detecting the infrared radiation of a given object, person or animal based on the surface temperature. Due to this, and the fact that this practice is both non-contact and non-invasive it means that there are many applications and uses for this excellent technology.   

Thermal imaging cameras have a wide range of applications and uses across an array of different industries and professions. The fact that a thermal imaging camera is able to produce results without any contact or invasion means that you can get easy and accurate answers.

As well as this, it also allows for whatever it is that is being assessed to be in operation during the survey which can be far more insightful than other methods. The industries that we most frequently conduct surveys for are; aerospace, automotive, buildings, chemical, electrical, mechanical, medical, pest control and veterinary.

Within these industries are multiple different applications for the effective use of thermal imaging cameras and their fantastic infrared detection technology. 

Yes, a thermal imaging camera can indeed be used during the daytime and daylight hours. The reason for this is because a FLIR camera contains a special lens. What this lens does is that it focuses the heat given off of whatever it is that is being assessed onto a detector that is sensitive to heat. Therefore, a thermal imaging camera is not affected by light and produces equally brilliant results during the day as it would at night too. 

Once you are aware that you require a thermal imaging survey then it is time to either pick up the phone to give us a call or fill out the contact for that can be found on every page of this website. We will then arrange a time that is convenient for you to be able to come and provide a free quote for the cost of the service you require. If you have already received a quote from another company, inform us of this for us to beat their price.

Then it is time to get down to business, our thermal imaging survey specialists will conduct a thorough survey of whatever you require. Once we are satisfied that we have a comprehensive assessment of the given subject of the survey then we will process the data of this. We provide a report of the survey which outlines the findings of it and explains it in a way that can e understood and that will include the images from the survey too. 

A thermal imaging survey will vary in cost, depending on multiple factors. Our service is entirely mobile as we can transport our thermal imaging cameras to wherever they are needed. If you are very far away from on of our offices then this may factor into the cost of your survey. Typically, a thermal imaging survey will be based around a day rate. This is subject to change by factors such as; the selected service, the necessary equipment to complete the survey, the time taken to complete the survey or other factors that are also subject to change. 

Thermal imaging has been around for a lot longer than many people realise. It is actually not far away from approaching it’s 100th birthday since it’s invention and practical use way back in 1929. The person to have discovered how to accurately assess and measure nearby infrared radiation was Hungarian physicist Kalman Tihanyi who developed the very first camera. Thanks to Mr Tihanyi’s discovery and invention this is what has lead us to be able to make use of infrared imaging for the entire time since.
