How Thermographic Inspections Work
Thermography measures surface temperature levels by using infrared video and still electronic cameras. These tools see light that is in the heat spectrum. Images on the video or film record the temperature variations of the structure’s skin, ranging from white for warm regions to black for cooler areas. The resulting images help the auditor determine whether insulation is required. They also function as a quality assurance tool, to make sure that insulation has actually been installed correctly.

A thermographic inspection is either an interior or exterior survey. The energy auditor chooses which technique would provide the best outcomes under particular climate condition. Interior scans are more typical, due to the fact that warm air getting away from a building does not constantly move through the walls in a straight line. Heat loss discovered in one location of the exterior wall might stem at some other location within the wall. Also, it is more difficult to find temperature differences on the exterior surface of the building during windy weather. Because of this, interior studies are generally more precise since they take advantage of minimized air movement.
Thermographic scans are also typically utilized with a blower door test. The blower door helps overemphasize air leaking through defects in the structure shell. Such air leakages appear as black streaks in the infrared electronic camera’s viewfinder.
