Thermal Imaging Inspection Services in Chicago

What are Thermal imaging Inspection services?

A thermal imaging inspection, also known as a thermographic inspection, is a process that utilizes infrared imaging via thermal image cameras to visualize the thermal energy emitted from an object or in an area. This technology is highly effective in various areas, particularly building inspections and energy assessments. Here’s an overview of how it works and its applications:

How Thermal Imaging Services Works:

Infrared Cameras: All objects produce an infrared energy. This energy produces a heat signature. An infrared/thermal image camera will detect an objects heat signature and convert the signature into an electronic image. The camera converts this energy into a visible thermal image or a thermogram, which displays temperature variations across the different surfaces. Objects that are wet, e.g., a damp basement baseboard, may appear cold, as the extra moisture will produce a cooler energy than the objects surrounding the wet area. Objects that are overheating, e.g., a wall switch, will appear white hot, as the extra heat will produce a warmer energy than the objects surrounding it.
