Infrared Thermography Information Sheet

Infrared cameras are the latest technology that is available to assist in the
fast and accurate building diagnosis of a range of building problems including
leaks and moisture associated damage. Thermography is the production of
temperature calibrated infrared or heat pictures with the use of an infrared camera.

By showing the temperature differences or abnormalities within the building envelope,
the cameras can pinpoint areas of concern. These areas can then be further tested with
either invasive moisture detection (moisture probes), non-invasive moisture detection
(electronic) or invasive inspections to determine the extent of the problem.


Example Only

This internal ceiling appeared to be in average/normal condition
when viewed with the naked eye (Example 1). However the image
from the infrared camera shows an abnormal 'shape' with a lower
temperature (Example 2). Dark abnormal shapes can be an indication
of moisture. When tested with an electronic digital moisture meter the
area was found to have elevated moisture readings. Upon further
investigation it was found that there was ingress of moisture via a pipe
penetration through the roof into the ceiling space of the house.
