Thermal Imaging Cameras Provide Important Answers during IAQ Investigations
The environmental professionals at Clark Seif Clark (CSC) utilize advanced infrared cameras to help solve complex indoor air quality (IAQ) and building science issues.
Thermal imaging cameras have found many uses since their inception. These specialized cameras are used by professionals ranging from firefighters and power line technicians to IAQ professionals and energy efficiency auditors. Thermal imaging is commonly used today for HVAC assessments, building inspections and flood restoration responses.
The infrared (IR) camera is a valuable tool in the hands of an experienced thermographer. Wet building materials can often be identified using infrared imaging, or thermography. Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging camera to “see” thermal energy emitted and/or reflected from an object.
Infrared cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation. Because they tend to be cooler or warmer than surrounding dry building materials, wet-building materials can often be distinguished in an infrared image. Thermography is useful in identifying wetted materials, which are not conducive to a visual assessment or a moisture meter survey, such as on carpeting, drapery, elevated ceilings, high walls and more.
Clark Seif Clark, a leading provider of building science and indoor air quality consulting services, has extensive expertise in utilizing infrared cameras during building investigations. “CSC utilizes thermography as another tool to help save our client time and money by quickly identifying and quantifying the extent of water intrusion into structures,” reported Derrick A. Denis, V.P. Indoor Environmental Quality at CSC. “IR technology is also a powerful instrument for identifying sagging insulation, verifying framing nailing schedules, locating leaking HVAC supply ducts, tracing hot water lines, determining transformer oil levels and so much more.”
