Seeing Where Others Can’t
Infrared Thermography is a specific skill. A good thermographer can find things other inspectors will miss, like cold and hot spots and problems with your mechanical systems.
Thermal Imaging and Your Building
We use thermal imaging on our commercial property inspections to find hidden issues, and ultimately to help our clients have accurate information to avoid costly mistakes.
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement device to “see” and “measure thermal energy emitted from an object.
Infrared thermographic cameras produce images of invisible infrared radiation or “heat signatures”, they also provide pictures using non-contact temperature measurement. Thermal or infrared energy is light which is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero (minus 459 degrees F) emits heat.
Cold objects, like a snowbank or ice
How infrared inspections can help you.
Infrared testing is a non-invasive, non-destructive inspection process that uses thermography cameras. These devices gather temperature signatures that lie beyond the range of visible light. Silvertree Inspections will use this data to help us detect problems before they become serious and cause costly issues. As business owner or real estate investor, infrared testing adds a valuable element to help you know if the property your buying needs maintenance or repairs.
Infrared testing with a published report is a powerful tool in determining just how efficient and sound your building is.
So what’s involved in being a thermographer?
Not everyone with a fancy camera knows how to use it. A certified thermographer is someone who has taken the time and effort to study this complex science. All thermographers must study to pass a proctored examination given at a verified testing facility. A minimum test score of 80 is required to
Schooling to become a thermographer is costly and a professional grade camera will cost from $5000 on up to $100,000 plus. So you see, a person who practices the science of
