snughome Services using Thermal Imaging
Thermal Imaging is the perfect tool for building diagnostics.
Its many applications include:
- ENERGY AUDITING
snughome's home inspectors will carry out an energy audit of your home using cutting-edge infrared technology to improve energy efficiency, leading to savings on energy costs.
- LOCATION OF LEAKS
Find and check pipes and tubes for leaks. Even when waterpipes are laid under the floor or behind plaster, the heat of the pipes radiates through the surface and can be easily detected with an infrared camera. The exact location of leaks or cracks can be detected without damage to fixtures.
- DETECTION OF CONSTRUCTION FAILURES
Heat losses, humidity and air leaks are instantly visible on colourful thermal images.
- INSULATION DEFECTS
By visualising areas of energy loss, or "thermal bridges", faulty locations are easily located, allowing measures to be taken to prevent condensation and areas of mould growth.
- FINDING LEAKS IN FLAT ROOFS
Evaluation of roofing systems for water leakage is easily achieved with Thermal Imaging. Water retains heat longer and can easily be detected at night when the rest of the roof has cooled. Wet areas of the roof can be repaired rather than replacing the whole roof.
- HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR CONDITIONING
Thermal Imaging can provide useful information on the functioning of air conditioning covers, radiators and ventilation systems.
- FIRE PROTECTION
Thermal Imaging allows easy discovery of crevices, leaking joints and loosening stones in chimneys and exhaust sections of heating systems. Overheated locations, which can cause chimney fires, become immediately visible on the infrared image. Danger of fire caused by building too closely to hot heating and exhaust areas can also be detected at once.
- PREVENT MOULD ATTACKS
Mould attacks the building structure an also your family's health. Health problems and allergies can develop where mould is allowed to build up. Infrared Cameras with with special software functions for dew point visualisation indicate endangered locations immediately, preventing damage to your family's health.
- BUYING A HOME?
Why not arrange for a Pre-Purchase Inspection to ensure your prospective home is free of dangerous or potentially expensive defects. It could save you thousands!
