Thermal imaging, also known as thermography, is the act of measuring infrared radiation generated by an object using a special camera despite the lighting conditions. The different amounts of radiation are therefore translated into a distinct colour gradient that corresponds to temperature swings to around one-tenth of a degree accuracy.
Thermal imaging is a visually precise and non-invasive technology that aids in the efficient and safe discovery of any possible critical issues in a commercial or residential building. This allows you to address the issues and make the necessary repairs. It is a cost-effective way to safeguard your property by preventing substantial loss or damage.
Building owners pay a high price for missing, damaged, or inadequate insulation, moisture infiltration, building envelope air leaks, and substandard labour. The only way to guarantee a thorough building inspection is to hire the services of a professional building inspection specialist, like Jim’s Building Inspections Adelaide. You will not only be minimising the risk in your investment, but you will also be protecting your safety and health.
Thermal imaging is the simplest and quickest means of identifying energy waste in buildings. At Jim’s Building Inspections, our thermal imaging cameras pinpoint the location of energy waste problems and help inspectors focus their attention, allowing them to accurately assess these areas of loss. We use it to check battery storage, for example, equipment such as data cabling and safety switches, or machinery, as well as ensuring the security and safety of your personnel and the entire operation during construction.
Thermal Imaging Can Help You Save Money on Your Insurance Costs
Thermal imaging has become increasingly popular among Australian businesses as a means of lowering commercial insurance premiums. Insurance companies are rewarding organisations that are taking steps to develop low-risk settings and fire-reduction initiatives because of the value that technology can give in preventative maintenance programmes. As a result, access to cheaper insurance prices is gained, as well as the prevention of production downtime.
Collecting valid and reliable information, having it accurately evaluated, and then clearly conveying those results to the property owner so that they would make dependable and educated decisions are all part of a professional thermal imaging inspection.
Getting a professional thermal imaging inspection of your commercial or residential building from Jim’s Building Inspections Adelaide gives you a chance to do remedial action to minor or major problems that could cost you an arm and leg in the long run.
