Thermography involves the non-invasive thermographic analysis of a building fabric to identify anomalies that may occur in the construction of buildings. These anomalies include air leakage, missing or defective insulation, moisture accumulations, defective heating systems and overloaded electrical circuits.
It is particularly useful for identifying the location of leaks in flat roof situations. A building survey using IR cameras is often carried out in tandem with a blower door / air tight test. John Morehead is a qualified Level 1 Thermographer.
This thermographic image shows the impact of thermal bridging embedded timber stud wall and signs of distress at the top of the wall.
See our Thermal Bridge Analysis page for more information on how these anomalies and thermal bridges can be avoided early in the design stage.
