Infrared Cameras for Building Science and Home Performance
Building-science consultant Flemming Lund explains how to use IR cameras to identify missing insulation, air leaks, water leaks, and more.
In one of many presentations on NESEA’s BuildingEnergy 14 trade-show floor, Flemming demonstrates the range of infrared diagnostic cameras and their particular capabilities. He begins by using a real-time projected camera image to show its operational capabilities and sensitivities. This is followed by PowerPoint slides of building-diagnostic images that show how this technology is used to understand building performance as well as thermal bridging and water-penetration failures. He also covers different infrared-camera options and other diagnostic tools that work well together with the infrared camera technology.
