What is thermography?

Skriv ut

Thermography is an effective method of identifying defects that affect the energy needs of buildings. Using a thermal imaging camera, heat images are taken where the infrared radiation (heat) is visualised. Problems can be identified and rectified by controlling the surface temperature.

ÅF has both the expertise and the equipment needed to carry out thermographs. After the building has had thermographs taken, the images are then processed and interpreted. The analysis takes into account, among other things, the building construction and installations, windows, etc. The conditions when thermographing was conducted need to be considered, e.g. sun, wind and outdoor temperatures over the past few days.


Why is thermography necessary?


Thermography means a quality review of a building’s envelope. Thermography is used to identify heat loss in the form of inadequate insulation and thermal bridges and leakage through poor seals. By identifying defects, you have the opportunity of avoiding and preventing unnecessary costs, as well as generating significant energy savings. Defective insulation can lead to major problems with respect to condensation and subsequent moisture and mould problems. Even poorly insulated installations and water leaks in pipelines may be encountered.


Thermography contributes to an improved thermal indoor climate. Draughts caused by air leaks and cold down draughts, cold floors and temperature differences can be identified and rectified. Thermography also helps to create an holistic picture and provides help in the maintenance planning of buildings.


Thermography – a step towards a sustainable society


Thermography provides the opportunity to identify areas for energy savings and avoid unnecessary energy consumption. This not only provides an economic benefit, but is also a major benefit for the environment!
