White Paper: Testing Building Envelope Systems Using Infrared Thermal Imaging

Source: Sofradir EC Inc.
This paper discusses the numerous applications for thermal imaging technology currently being used to inspect building envelopes. These include validation of structural details, verification of energy performance (conduction and air leakage), location of moisture intrusion, and the identification of structural and system degradation of roofs and facades. Examples will be given for each application and the basic conditions required will be discussed.
