Jim Godbout Plumbing & Heating, Inc. offers Thermal Imaging Services to commercial and residential customers throughout Southern Maine. This technology allows us to see changes in the atmosphere to identify energy losses in the building envelope.
- Thermal imaging services can see things the naked eye cannot.
- Identify leaks from plumbing, heating and HVAC systems can be found with ease.
- Electrical problems with machinery and motors can be detected very quickly, which can save energy.
Identify Building Problems
The primary diagnostic procedure for determining the thermal performance of a building envelope is infrared thermography. It can be used to identify heating and cooling loss due to poor construction, missing or inadequate insulation and moisture intrusion. Correcting the defects plays a significant role in increasing building efficiency and structural integrity.
Thermography can identify surface temperature variations of the building envelope, which relates to problems in the structure, thermal bridging, moisture content and air leakage.
Find Air Leakage
Air leakage is the passage of air through a building envelope, wall, window, joint, etc. Leakage to the interior is referred to as infiltration and leakage to the exterior is referred to as “exfiltration”. Excessive air movement significantly reduces the thermal integrity and performance of the envelope and is, therefore, a major contributor to energy consumption in a building.
Mold has existed in our environment long before the recent awareness of its presence in homes and businesses. The impact of mold on health is dependent upon the concentration of spores in the immediate area and the allergic effect on an individual. Potential health problems associated with mold exposure can take the form of allergic reactions or asthma. The problem is not limited to homes. Commercial buildings with moisture accumulation due to condensation or leaks are a candidate for mold growth.
