Infrared Inspection


mould_inspection_leak_detection_ireland_dublin
Heat energy is transferred from homes by conduction through the walls, floor, roof and windows. It is also transferred from homes by convection. For example, cold air can enter the house through gaps in doors and windows, and convection currents can transfer heat energy in the loft to the roof tiles. Heat energy also leaves the house by radiation through the walls, roof and windows.

Many homes have significant thermal inefficiencies which can be easily and cost effectively improved. By scanning buildings with infrared imaging camera equipment, Mould Busters can capture heat loss in the form of a picture called a ‘Thermal Image’. From within these images we can acquire and evaluate thermal information that can be used to identify where energy cost savings can be made.

The purpose of an infrared inspection is to confirm or deny the presence of mould by detecting temperature changes behind walls. It is a great tool to identify moisture problems and other construction issues in a non-invasive way, without knocking down walls or creating costly damage to a property.

Conductive heat losses are almost often due to missing, damaged or water saturated insulation within the walls or roof which will effect how well your property is insulated and how well it retains the heat within the ‘building envelope’.

Almost anywhere within the building envelope i.e. doors, windows, chimneys, brickwork, there is potential for air leakage and thus heat loss. The amount of air leakage from a building is important to maintain comfort and the cost effective operation of the heating and cooling systems. Many factors can affect the air tightness of a property so, by identifying where air leakage falls outside the accepted range, we can expose defects which can then be brought to the attention of the owner.

Moisture intrusion often occurs through small cracks in the building structure where water becomes trapped in the impermeable building materials. Potential health problems associated with mould are dependent on the concentration of spores in a given area and can result in allergic reactions and asthma. The root cause of condensation, another form of moisture, is more often than not, is an imbalance between the heating and ventilation systems, and the insulation in the fabric of the building.

Mould Busters use thermal imaging cameras to locate potential mould growth by identifying areas with moisture problems. An infrared camera pinpoints the exact location of the temperature differences and thus reveals faulty construction and water intrusion.
