Residential thermal imaging is becoming increasingly popular in NZ… and it’s amazing what the infrared camera will find in the hands of a certified thermographer!
It’s eye opening when you walk into a multi million dollar home that the builders haven’t quite finished off as one would expect… especially when the home owner has absolutely no idea that a problem exists. Some of the issues are minor, and others major.
Residential homes should all be thermal imaged for leaks and energy loss at some stage in their life, just to stay ontop on maintenance if anything. Here’s an example of cool air entering a residential home in NZ around the door jamb…
The dark wispy pattern is cool air running up the wall at the top left corner of the door frame… completely invisible to the human eye!!
Infrared thermography in residential houses is a must if you want to know if your home is energy efficient and/or has an energy loss problem or not.
