Thermal imaging technology reads temperature disparities throughout a defined area. Recording the total radiated thermal energy and calculating temperature from those detected energy levels using complex algorithms, it can read exact temperatures. From water damage to energy conservation, ATI’s thermal imaging technology finds what needs vital repairs before a problem spirals out of control.

As a non-invasive solution to investigating a property thoroughly and with minimal disruption to operations, thermal imaging is a convenient tool. Working externally with technology like drones, and internally with hand-held devices, the cameras can detect infrared radiation to produce thermograms that can read signals of varying size, giving you a head start on pinpointing and addressing problems big or small.
ATI can capture details of moisture inside a structure to help you find problems while they are still small. It notices the minute differences in temperature of a small leak, or the larger temperature changes from a serious, but still otherwise unnoticed problem hidden behind roofing materials like metal panels, or internally behind walls or ceilings. By scanning the envelope of a building, thermal imaging can see what other technology can’t. It allows you to address a moisture problem quickly to avoid the growth of mold which could lead to costly additional repairs.
Thermal imaging technology is capable of detecting electrical problems, airflow around roofs, windows, doors, and other openings, and address issues such as inefficient insulation or plumbing leaks. It’s one of the most efficient methods to pinpoint energy losses. Identifying these issues quickly means less money spent on utilities, and less spent on solving the problems.
Offering thermal imagery allows ATI to help you take an in-depth look at what is really going on in the envelope of your building. It’s been used to detect small animal nests, gaps in insulation, HVAC leaks and damage, and a variety of issues with electrical and plumbing systems that otherwise could have gone unnoticed until serious damage had occurred.
From moisture mapping to energy loss, thermal imaging is one of the most practical methods to preventative home maintenance. Rather than waiting for a problem to spiral out of hand, ATI’s thermal imaging technology allows us to see what other technologies can’t in order to stay on top of any issues.
No, due to the wall’s thickness and insulation, thermal imaging technology does not have the ability to see through walls.
To stay on top of any potential problems, an energy assessment should be completed every few years. Other situations that would be beneficial to have an energy audit would be an abnormal gas or electric bill or post-natural disaster. A thermal imaging scan has the ability to identify any potential problems with your structure.
Though thermal imaging is very practical to measure any insulation issues, that is not it’s only function. Thermal imaging can not only be used to detect abnormal levels of moisture either from plumbing leaks or external disasters, but can detect electrical problems as well.
An excess of water causes mold. A leaking pipe, improper insulation, or some other form of untreated water damage can cause the moisture. Once it starts growing, it can spread quickly. Best practice is to have a professional check your home for mold as there might also be asbestos, both of which can cause health issues.
Call your insurance company first but we recommend calling a restoration professional quickly. If unattended, mold & mold-forming bacteria can spread to other areas of the property quickly causing additional damage.
