Moisture Intrution

How it works

Whether it's residential or commercial, an infrared camera can see and measure heat differences in building materials on ceilings, walls and floors. Wet or moist areas and objects will have a different temperature than dry areas due to evaporated cooling, increased conductance or thermal capacitance. Accordingly, the moisture areas will appear relatively darker or lighter than the dry areas on an infrared picture enabling us to locate them.

Who is at fault?

The true culprits of moisture damage are design flaws, construction defects and mechanical or plumbing leaks which allow for the intrusion of water.

The problem with water is that it deteriorates building components and creates conditions conducive to mold growth.

With infrared thermography we can clearly see the damaged areas and show you the source of your moisture problems so fault can be determined.

Why "moisture find" thermography?

Locating moisture through infrared technology can save you money, time and headaches.

  • It is an affordable way to detect and locate moisture problems.

  • It saves you money because it can pinpoint problem areas enabling you to repair only the areas the need repairing.

  • It provides immediate results and can survey large areas in a very short time.

  • It is a comprehensive, non-contact, non-destructive investigative tool that eliminates the need to tear down walls hunting for damage.

  • The clear and concise report you will receive is easy-to-understand and can serve as irrefutable proof of moisture damage in court.


Energy Efficiency Audit

Infrared Thermography is a proven diagnostic technique recommended by the US Department of Energy for identifying areas of heat loss. Considering your heating and cooling load can be up to 50% of your actual energy bill, a thermal scan of your home can identify where those wasted dollars are going, no matter what type of heating or cooling system you have. An energy efficiency scan survey of your home is just plain smart and you can play your part in the Green Movement. Your reduced utility consumption will reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well.
