Building Thermography and Thermal Imaging
THE BASICS OF THERMAL IMAGING
Perth Windows uses both aerial and ground based Infra-red thermal imaging (IRT) to carry out a detailed assessment of your property before recommending a course of action. (The process is referred to as Thermography)
IRT is a safe and non-destructive technology enabling us to measure temperature over the surface area of your home. After thermally mapping your structure, Perth Windows will be able to accurately determine where heat is infiltrating/exfiltrating from, following this, we can offer the most cost effective option to making your home more thermally efficient.
Locate Heat Loss
Thermal imaging cameras coupled with a Perth Windows pressure unit detect areas of heat loss within a structure.
Locating Thermal Bridging
Once these areas of significant structural heat transfer are found, we'll be well on our way to an effective insulation plan.
UKTS technicians will highlight all areas of missing/damaged insulation throughout the building envelope.
Detecting water ingress
Water ingress is a common and serious problem in both new and old builds. Failure to correct will result in mould, water damage and a general failure of the buildings thermal envelope. UKTS can accurately determine the source of ingress.
- A typical three bedroom, two bathroom house will take 4 hours to fully map. The remainder of the analysis is carried out away from your home.
- No holes, no drilling, no samples. You'll only have to put up with one of our technicians, the whirring of a drone and a blower.
- Our technician will give a comprehensive report of where heat is entering your home from, based off this information we will be able to recommend the most cost effective renovations to your property.
