Infrared Camera Inspection
Check out some cool photos:
According to the U.S.Department of Energy, the typical family spends close to $2,500 a year on their home's utility bills, and unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted due to insufficient insulation and a lack of weather stripping around doors and windows. Professional home inspectors and energy auditors have been using leading-edge infrared technology to perform energy auditing of homes and buildings to improve energy efficiency, thus leading to savings on energy costs.
How Infrared Thermography Works
Thermography enables us to see and measure heat. All materials on earth emit heat energy, in the infrared portion of the spectrum. Unfortunately, the unaided human eye cannot see in the infrared. Thermographic, or simply thermal, images allow the user to see thermally, revealing anomalies that in turn identify problems in buildings and their component electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and waterproofing systems. Today's lightweight and rugged infrared cameras can not only see in real-time, but can also record infrared images and measure the temperatures of target objects quite accurately-to within 1/10 of a Fahrenheit degree or better. Points of possible concern show up clearly as hot or cold in relation to their surroundings. Recorded thermal images can be easily inserted into reports, and e-mailed, greatly facilitating communications among trades, attorneys, and other professionals and serving as invaluable, rational, evidentiary data in cases involving controvers.
About FLIR Systems
With over 30 years experience and more than 30,000 of its IR cameras in use, FLIR is the undisputed global leader in infrared systems. From industrial to military applications, thermography professionals have made FLIR their number one choice. No other company offers such a wide range of infrared cameras, software, service, training and support. FLIR's ThermaCAM series of thermal imaging cameras have long set the standard for thermographic testing and analysis. Today they are the most widely used non-contact temperature measurement infrared cameras in the world.
Licensing of home inspectors only sets a minimum standard. Much like being up to code, any less would be illegal. Imaginary people, children, psychics (who claim to "sense" if a house is OK) and even pets can be home inspectors. Other home inspection associations have no entrance requirements and worse, encourage their candidates to go out and perform actual inspections for poor, unsuspecting consumers as the only way to achieve full membership. NACHI finds this practice unconscionable. That is why NACHI front-ends its membership requirements. We turn down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't pass our exam or fulfill our membership requirements.
