  • Infared Thermography is simply the best!
    The most effective proven predictive maintenance (PM) technology available to quickly, accurately and safely locate problems prior to failure is infared thermography. In June 2001, Maintenance Technology magazine reported a $4 return on investment for every $1 spent on infared inspection.

  • Home Inspections
    Infared images will display potential problems pertaining to insulation, cold air infiltration, air quality, moisture damage and mold as well as the performance of your windows and doors. Detailed images also display the construction framing of your home.

  • Commercial Building Inspections
    Commercial inspections include properties such as apartment complexes, motels, office buildings, convenience stores, warehouses and factories. Inspections can include diagnosing exterior walls for missing or settled insulation, moisture and mold detection, and heating and cooling system analysis and are designed to meet a client's specific needs.

  • Energy Surveys
    With soaring heating costs, make sure your furnace is not heating the outdoors. Infared images can pinpoint exact areas of heat loss for immediate repair.

  • Electrical Inspections
    Our thermo Imaging Report is clear and thorough and provides information on fuses, breakers, transformers and other electrical components. Weaknesses can be detected and repaired preventing catastrophic failure, destroyed equipment and lost production and fires.

  • Mechanical Inspections
    A Thermo Imaging inspection can reduce repair costs substantially, extend equipment life and avert mechanical failures. It can be used to monitor motors, pumps, bearings and insulated lines and should be scheduled regularly as a preventive maitenance program.

  • Roof Inspections
    Regularly scheduled roof inspections will allow you to find moisture damage and leaks before they become apparent. The degreee of damage can be determined so that repair priorities can be set. This is the most cost-effective approach to roof maintenance.
