With over 20 years of inspection & engineering experience, All safe Inspections is Alabama’s full service inspection company offering Home, Structural, and Commercial Inspections.
Infrared scanning (IR)
- Identifies moisture that can lead to mold growth and deterioration
- Identifies insulation losses and other building related defects
- Locates hot spots that can lead to electrical and mechanical failures
Infrared scanning (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show clients things about their homes or buildings that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods.
An infrared inspection can help identify and document moisture intrusion, energy loss, and even unexpected hot spots.
ASI inspection reports provide standard digital images side by side with your IR images, providing clients with an accurate point of reference for the IR data, essential for mapping out improvements and repairs.
Infrared Moisture Detection
Identifying moisture is key to preventing mold growth.
Missing Insulation Detection
Identifying areas of missing insulation is key to reducing energy costs.
Hot Spot Detection
Identifying "hot spots" is key to preventing electrical fires.
What is measured?
Infrared light or thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared.
What does it mean?
The higher the object's temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or "heat" radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications.
