What is Thermal Imaging?

Benefits of
Thermal Imaging

Infrared Thermal Imaging is the process of interpreting surface temperatures into a visual image that we can easily observe and interpret.

Thermal imaging measures radiated IR (infrared) energy and then converts the data to corresponding maps of temperatures, referred to as thermographs. Thermographs provide temperature data at each image pixel (over 17,000 detectors) and typically, cursors can be positioned to each point with the corresponding temperature on the screen.

How does Thermal Imaging work?

Thermal or infrared energy is light that we cannot see because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye. It’s part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Everything with a temperature above absolute zero (-459.67°F) emits heat. The higher the object’s temperature, the greater the infrared radiation that is emitted. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications.

What can Thermal Imaging do for you?

Thermal Imaging can help diagnose problems that the naked eye cannot see. It offers a non-invasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the conditions of buildings by providing immediate high-resolution thermal imagery, revealing potential structural and moisture issues, energy efficiency and even rodent or pest discovery..
