Thermal imaging cameras have lots of practical uses including detecting:
- missing insulation in your home
- moisture defects
- thermal bridges in buildings
- and electrical faults

How does a thermal imaging camera work?
Well heres a brief bit about the science/technology behind it.....The camera detects radiation in the infrared range, as infrared radiation is emitted by all objects it means it is possible to view your home using the thermal imaging camera with or without visible light. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature; thermography allows you to see variations in temperature. When viewed through a thermal imaging camera, warm objects stand out well against cooler backgrounds, this allows the camera to be used to survey a property for draughts or missing insulation, for example.
If you would like to try and improve your home lifestyle environment by finding out more about the thermal efficiency of your home then come along.....
