Using the latest infrared camera technology thermal infrared building inspections can provide evidence for self-builders, new and existing commercial and domestic landlords, that their property performs to the specifications of the architect and has a continuity of thermal insulation, over the whole visible envelope. The United Kingdom Thermography Association (UKTA) Code of Practice: Building Thermography and Thermal Insulation Continuity including BSRIA's, (The Building Services Research & Information Association) Thermal Imaging of Building Fabric guidance notes will help in determining your thermographic surveyor and procedures, when performing the most effective means of a infrared survey on your property.

Other benefits of our thermographic building surveys include:

  • Determine envelope cladding, de-lamination, bonding and rendering faults
  • Locate rebar and rebar corrosion & concrete spalling
  • Determine the location of pilasters & horizontal bonded beam placement
  • Locate excessive energy loss and missing insulation
  • Prove insulation integrity and placement following renovation or new build completion
  • Locate degraded, wet insulation and cold air infiltration into your home
  • Find moisture ingress and mould growth that contribute to sick building syndrome
  • Monitor the extent of condensation throughout your household
  • Examine the efficiency of heating systems, blocked radiators and piping and trace under floor heating routes
  • Determine leaking or passing valves on radiators
  • Assess timber batten locations beneath rendered/pinked plasterboard
  • Determine old locations of former windows, doorways and flue positions
  • Locate damaged (missing inert gases) in double glazing
  • Locate thermal bridging, cold spots and moisture ingress
  • Search for buried sprinkler systems near soil sub-surface
  • Monitor extent of water damage in walls and flooding
  • Assess wall dryness in readiness for plastering
  • Identify and record any construction differences to design parameters for quality control purposes before warranty expires
  • Identify wet insulation in flat roofs systems, to replace only those areas that only need replacing as opposed to the entire flat roof
  • Confirm door and window seal fit against air leakages
  • Detect termite or other insect colony infestation
  • Detect hot-spot electrical issues at fuse boxes and locate energized cabling chased into walls
  • Visualize energy loss during home and commercial energy auditing
  • Improve your energy efficiency by locating heat loss in your home, to pin-point where insulation is needed

Infrared thermography is the ideal tool to detect deficiencies in your building envelope and save you money. Geo Therm Ltd can provide qualitative and quantitative inspections inexpensively with minimal interference to your business premises or home life. On your next build or energy audit need get 'instep with infrared' and see the difference, for additional information read Thermal Imaging of Buildings.
