Thermal Imaging for Energy Efficiency

Thermal Imaging | Energy Efficiency

In recent years energy efficiency has become an important topic both at home and in business. We are becoming more aware of our energy consumption and the effect it can have on the environment and on our pockets. In this article we will discuss the benefits of using thermal imaging cameras for energy efficiency. 

About Thermal Imaging Cameras

Thermal imaging cameras are temperature measurement devices. They measure thermal energy which is converted in to a 2 dimensional image and allows the user to see differences in temperature within the target area. They can easily detect differences in temperature which highlight areas of concern. One of the main benefits of thermal imaging cameras is that they are non-destructive and non-invasive which means they don’t need the area of concern to excavated or to be powered off. SATIR offers a wide range of thermal imaging cameras that can suit different budgets and abilities

Using Thermal Imaging Cameras for Energy Savings

In recent years, we have all become more aware of being environmentally friendly due to the changes in our climate and environment. A big part of being environmentally friendly is to be energy efficient using simple steps such as turn off lights when they are not needed, this will help the environment and our pockets. Using technology can also help us make some bigger energy savings such as thermal imaging cameras. Thermal Imaging cameras can detect building structure defects, insulation issues or escape of warm air.  This will help save on heating costs both at home and in business.  Thermal Imaging cameras can see a area of concern which cannot be seen by the human eye. Once detected, corrective action can take place which can save the environment and money. Below are some examples of areas that can save energy and costs in the long-term by using better insulation
