How Infrared Inspection Can Help Make Your HVAC System Better
Welcome to the age of technology. A time when we can operate almost everything in our homes from a small device in the palm of our hands.
It’s helped you, the homeowner, become more aware of the way your home operates. You can control the temperature of your home with a swipe of the finger – no more wasting energy when nobody’s at home.
It’s helped service professionals by giving us the ability to identify where problem areas lie, even when they aren’t visible to the naked eye.
Enter infrared technology, a thermal imaging camera which offers a complete analysis of the home. With a simple scan, infrared cameras can detect extremely tiny but crucial differences in temperature from one room in your home to another. It can help point out where energy loss is greatest; where lack of insulation, low weather stripping, or other leaks are a problem. It can show other problems, such as electrical hot spots or where moisture problems exist hidden behind your walls.
Infrared inspections avoid the guesswork associated with more traditional methods of investigation. Instead, infrared inspections provide tangible evidence for many hidden problems including:
- Air duct leaks
- Improperly functioning fixtures and equipment
- The presence of moisture
- Energy inefficiencies
- Lack of insulation
- Electrical hot spots that pose a fire danger
How can it help you?
With an infrared inspection, you can quickly learn where weaknesses in your HVAC system are. Just because one room is cold and another is hot doesn’t mean your furnace is in need of replacement. With an infrared inspection, you may discover the problem is with the amount of insulation on an outside wall. Or a duct line that has multiple, tiny leaks.
It has the potential of saving you money by replacing only what needs to be replaced. It has the potential of making your home safer, healthier, and more comfortable than its ever been before.
