Infrared Thermography (Seeing in to walls)
It is a prime concern for Indoor Environmental Professionals to address the extent of moisture damage caused by flooding, sewage back up or broken pipes. Determining if water damage and possible mold growth has occurred is a prime public health concern. The ability to determine the temperature differences within one substrate or material can help isolate heat/cooling pockets to increase energy efficiency, potential electrical circuit overloads and water damage or potentially moldy materials.

Water Damaged Materials contribute to MOLD GROWTH
In this photo, the water damaged area is indicated by the darker blue strip within this wall. The cool water, as indicated by the darker blue, indicates the primary area of moisture damage and identifies the source without destroying the materials. If this happened to be a hot water pipe, the color of the dark blue band would be red.

Christmas Tree Lights Producing Heat
In this Photo, the red and yellow colors indicate the amount of heat produced from the lights on the tree. An extreme difference between the Christmas tree (red & yellow) and the surrounding areas (blue) can be observed when the lights are on. Heat generally moves in an upward direction as indicated in the darker red on the top of the tree.

Infrared Detection of Energy Loss & Auditing
In this photo, the windows (as indicated by the red, yellow and light green colors) allow heat into the building at a phenomenal rate. On this summer day, the air conditioning was on in the office building cooling the air and the building materials. The yellow marks on the ground indicate the temperature difference created by solar radiation shining into the windows.

Infrared Electrical Inspection & Reporting
Electrical currents are a form of energy and the heat that dissipates can be identified with the thermal infrared camera. The heat of each electrical component can be identified and recorded for future use. This is helpful in determining if a connection or electrical component is reaching is potential failure and may need to be replaced (before it fails).
