Residential Infrared Inspections

Infrared Thermal Imaging Applications related to Residential Building Inspection Applications servicing the Nashville, TN areas

Infrared Building structural analysis concerning installation voids, air leakage, structural defects, poor workmanship, moisture ingress.

Poor Insulation & Air Leakage

Installation voids are an efficiency concern. Installation may appear properly installed, however poor performance is often present.

Windows are the primary source of moisture ingress as well as air leakage. Deterioration of thermal windows causes moisture condensation and fogging of the interior of the window system as well as reduced insulation efficiency.

Air Leakage:

Air leakage is responsible for as much as 30% reduction in heating/cooling performance. Energy efficiency ratings determine the quantity of air infiltration, however locating points of air infiltration is a much more difficult process. Thermal imaging inspection readily identifies these locations so appropriate repairs can be accomplished.


Infrared Building Moisture Inspection:

Moisture is a primary cause of building degradation. It affects human comfort, air quality and heating/cooling costs.

Sources of building moisture come from humidity of the air, condensation, water leakage inside the building, rain water from the exterior and from inhabitants of the building.

Mold is more prevalent when moisture is high and the temperature is favorable for toxic molds to grow. Mold will grow best when: temperatures are between 77 ° F and 86° F, when water is present and nutrients are available (mold will eat just about anything in your building).
