Thermal Camera Inspections
Inspecting your home using a thermal imaging camera is a powerful and non-invasive means to locate building defects such as missing insulation, air leaks and condensation problems.
A home inspection with a thermal imaging camera can help:
- Visualize energy losses
- Detect missing or defective insulation
- Source air leaks
- Find moisture in insulation, in roofs and walls, both in the internal and the external structure
- Detect mould and badly insulated areas
- Locate thermal bridges
- Locate water infiltration in flat roofs
- Detect breaches in hot-water pipes
- Detect animals & pests
Easily identify areas in the home with missing or poorly installed insulation. As little as 5% gap in coverage can reduce insulation performance as much as 50%.
Detection of air leaks
Air leaks lead to higher energy consumption and poor thermal comfort. Air leaks can also lead to condensation in the construction which in its turn can cause a poor indoor climate.
A Thermal Camera can detect moisture invisible to the naked eye. Moisture damage is the most common form of deterioration for a building. Moisture in walls, floors, or ceilings and wet insulation are prime locations for mould and fungi.
Booking a Thermal Camera Inspection
Geelong Sustainability offers Thermal Camera inspections that are performed by local highly skilled energy efficiency assessors in the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast regions.
Assessments cost $250 and usually take 1hr to complete. Please enquire about assessment costs for locations outside of Geelong.
The assessor will visit your home to conduct a thorough thermography inspection of the building fabric. They will take infrared thermal photos of any problem areas and discuss with you what was identified and how it can be improved, as well as other energy efficiency advice specific to your home. At the end of the assessment you will receive a report with infrared thermal images. View a sample report.
