US Infrared Inspections is one of the premier infrared thermography inspection companies operating in the United States, with its home office based in Maryland. The teams of ITC certified Level II and Level III thermographers are trained to investigate, provide facts, and report problems that plague your home, office or business operations.
We are trained to find electrical, mechanical, building envelope, and HVAC problems before they become costly repair issues for your home or facility. Our thermographers are current with continuing education credits as well as periodic updates in training as the field of infrared thermography continues to evolve.
Infrared thermography is a non-contact technology that measures surface temperatures. Everything on the planet, above -273 degrees Celsius, emits a heat signature. Thermal cameras have the ability to detect these heat signatures and to determine a range of temperatures. These thermal images can be analyzed and compared to temperature charts that help forecast or predict upcoming events.
These images can reveal:
- Loose electrical connections
- Overheated Motor windings and bearings
- Poor mechanical shaft alignments
- Uneven wear patterns on moving equipment
In building envelope systems:
- Moisture under roof membranes
- Water damaged shingles and underlayments
- Leaky skylights
- Poorly installed or missing insulation in walls and attics
- Over-all energy losses
