The secret to our longevity in this business is our commitment to delivering exceptional customer service. This is reflected both in terms of the professional performance of our technicians and office staff as well as in our ability and willingness to keep up with the latest technological advances in the industry.
Infrared thermal imaging is an example of a technology that we now use to diagnose the problems of our customers and decide how to best address them. As trusted Atlanta electrical contractors, this technology is simply one more way that we care for our customers. Below is a brief description of this technology and how its use can be beneficial to your comfort and safety.
An infrared camera detects radiation within the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum. It can pick up waves with a wavelength between 0.9 and 14 micrometers. Humans can only detect electromagnetic waves within the visible portion of the spectrum with a wavelength between 380 to 750 nanometers. Because we are not capable of seeing infrared light unassisted, thermal cameras use false color to "show" us infrared radiation. Typically, hot areas appear as white on the camera screen while cold spots show up as purple or black.
The Importance of Thermal Imaging for Homeowners
An infrared inspection of your home completed by a highly trained and experienced professional can reveal energy loss, hot spots and hidden damp areas beneath the walls and underneath the floors of your house. Because it is non-invasive, you can have a clear picture of existing and potential damages without tearing down walls or boring holes.
Some problems start out small (like minor water seepage in your foundational walls) but have the potential to cause major headaches down the road if not caught and remedied right away. Thermal imaging can pinpoint areas of concern so you can make an informed decision before a major and more expensive problem occurs.
Only a seasoned and trained technician can interpret thermal images correctly. Based on their knowledge and expertise, they can identify critical areas that need immediate attention and repair. They can also recognize potential danger zones that call for preventive measures, such as an exterior wall that needs additional insulation.
