How We Do It
How does Thermography work?
With the help of an infrared camera it is possible to visualize the radiated heat. From that reason the building should be heated and the outdoor temperature has to be relatively low. Ideal are temperatures around 5°C. Our thermograph generates a lot of different images with the infrared camera and evaluates them afterwards with the computer. The heat is illustrated in different colours, so it is possible to identify the spots with the highest heat losses.
What preparations are needed?
For significant thermographic images ther must be a temperature difference of minimum 10°-15°C between inside and outside of the building. The rooms should be heated therefore for 12 to 24 hours before the appointment.
Are the requirements to the weather?
Yes, thermographic recording only makes sence, if the right conditions are provided. The outdoor temperature should be between 5°-6°C at the most, so that a temperature difference of minimum 10° to 15°C between inside and outside is achieved. At bright sunshine it makes no sense to prepare thermographic images, because the sun radiation would warm up the outer wall additionally and distort the results. Heavy precipitation and wind are also not appropriate for thermographic imaging. The best conditions prevail at low outside temperatures, overcast sky and preferably in the early morning or late evening hours.
Why do I need thermography?
Thermographic images of your building can help in different situations. Prior to restructuring measures you get an overview about possible heat leaks and can repair your building projected. At a new building or after completed restructuring measures you get the possibility to evaluate the services with the thermographic images and to demand possible rectifications.
There are a lot of suppliers that offer thermography for bargain prices. Caution is recommended here, because often you only get some colourful pictures in bad quality and without further evaluation. The secret of thermography is not only the creation of the images but rather the evaluation of the thermographic images. Reliable suppliers offer you besides the images also a report with the depiction and an evaluation of the weak areas. A reliable supplier is taking time for your questions and requires detailed information about the building.
