Attic Thermal Imaging

FLIR ( Forward Looking Infrared) is the world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of thermal imaging infrared cameras.

What do thermal imaging cameras see?

Thermal imaging cameras don’t actually see temperature. Instead, they capture the infrared (IR) energy transfer from an object to its environment and produce a real-time image in a color palette where hotter objects appear brighter and cooler
objects appear darker.

IR energy is generated by the vibration of atoms and molecules and behaves similarly to visible light where it can be reflected, refracted, absorbed and emitted. The more these atoms and molecules move, the higher the temperature of the object.

Of course, these are not the only thermal imaging camera applications. Their use is limited only by the imagination of the user. Primarily, thermal imaging cameras are used where the identification of thermal patterns can be used to find something or diagnose a condition, such as poor insulation in a home or an overloaded electrical circuit.

This picture above shows where Calgary Chinook Winds had blown away the insulation from the corners of the attic causing condensation/moisture to appear in the attic, walls and surrounding area.

This is a picture of a ceiling in a Calgary home that is missing insulation.

Thermal Imaging Camera Applications and Uses Thermal imaging cameras are becoming a common tool in the home inspection industry where they are being used to verify building performance to specifications, to determine insulation condition, locate leaks, verify structure design and
locate moisture intrusion.
