Thermal Inspection Services in Atlanta, GA
Infrared thermography is the technique of converting infrared energy (radiant heat) into an image that a person can see and understand. We ordinarily see in visible light. We can compare infrared to visible light - they are not the same, but they are analogous.
Thermal cameras are a powerful tool in viewing wall cavity insulation, ceiling insulation, moisture related issues or problems. Used in conjunction with the Blower Door, this tool is very powerful in locating voids in the thermal boundary of the home. The thermal boundary and the pressure boundary are two of the most important aspects of energy efficiency retrofits. These two boundaries must be aligned to provide the best protection to keeping your home energy efficient and comfortable. Air leakage pathways are easily identified and documented by capturing the thermal image and allowing Green Home to create a map of your home. This map allows us to provide you with one of the most comprehensive reports on the market. The report will show you where the problem areas are located and then with our expertise we will formulate a plan remedy the issues and give you the most cost effect solution to make your home more energy efficient.
You are familiar with the idea of a video camera creating images on video monitors or television. The electronics in the camera convert the light energy that enters the lens into a video signal, and displays that signal on a monitor or TV. You see shapes, colors, textures, shadows, and reflective surfaces in the image as a result of the camera's ability to capture light.
In a similar way, an infrared camera creates an image by converting radiant heat energy into a signal that can be displayed on a monitor (and later printed). The infrared energy emitted from an object is directly proportional to its temperature. Therefore temperatures are accurately measured by the infrared camera.
