Infrared Thermal Imaging

Energy Solutions Throughout the US

INFILTRATION (AIR LEAKS): Cold air can infiltrate a building through the edges of doors and windows. Even when daylight is not visible around the edge of the door, cold air may be entering the building and increasing heating costs. Thermal imaging such as this can be used to verify the soundness of existing windows and doors.

Global Facility Solutions utilizes infrared thermal scanning technology to identify areas of heat loss or air infiltration within commercial facilities. The building envelope (walls, windows, doors and roof) may be a large source of energy waste within commercial buildings. Utilizing infrared thermal imaging will easily help identify areas of energy loss that can be corrected to reduce losses.

The infrared thermal camera is one of the most versatile tools that can be used during the energy audit. The thermal scanner or infrared digital camera can be used during the energy audit to identify sources of heat loss and cold air infiltration.

Infrared imaging allows us to:

  • MISSING INSULATION: The picture above does not provide an indication of any issue with the thermal barrier above the ceiling of this elementary school classroom. However, the thermal image on the left clearly shows an area where the insulating factor is greatly reduced. This increases energy costs while causing cold drafts and comfort issues.

    Identify areas of missing or wet insulation above ceilings or within walls.

  • Locate and document air leaks through the exterior envelope of the building.
  • Locate deficiencies in the thermal boundary, insulation, thermal breaks, etc.
  • Verify operating temperatures of Mechanical HVAC components such as motors and drive systems.
