Thermal imaging, also known as infrared imaging senses differences in temperatures that are otherwise undetectable by the human eye. The thermal imaging camera is the primary tool for thermal imaging. It looks no different from the conventional camcorder, and also operates similarly. It is extensively used in security, navigation, surveillance, firefighting, and medicine. This is also used as a non-destructive testing methodology. Your local Nassau professional plumber has saved clients a lot of money utilizing the thermal imaging detection.
Thermal imaging or thermal video cameras can be used for various facets of building audits and diagnostics. Indoor environments of a building be seriously compromised because of poor insulation, improper sealing of doors and windows, bad quality duct work, plumbing leaks, and other plumbing related issues because of inefficient HVAC systems. The applications of this technology in energy audits, HVAC & plumbing issues, moisture & restoration, has made it an indispensable tool in the business of building & construction. Infrared video cameras are also used to detect problems that lead to mold growth and indoor air quality.

Indoor environment can be compromised by poor insulation, poorly sealed windows and doors, inadequate or poorly sealed ductwork, plumbing leaks, or other plumbing issues relating to Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Can you see signs of a leak around your shower? Has it penetrated through to the wall behind?
A leaking shower can cause major damage to all parts of your home… especially if there is a room below the bathroom. During many thermal imaging inspections, i've seen water coming through ceilings destroying furniture and carpets below… not to mention how it wets insulation and rots timber along the way!. If it's a slow leak due to plumbing issues behind the walls, then it can get really ugly!
Finding a leak source in a bathroom is usually is pretty simple… it's detecting how far the water has gone and what damage it has caused that home owners should be worried about. If you're in a apartment building and you see what coming in to your ceiling where a bathroom is located above, then there's a real problem.
