Elmhurst Energy's Thermography Scheme offers credibility and quality standards for qualified Thermal Imaging Inspectors who provide infrared thermography for building surveys.
About Thermal Imaging Inspectors
Qualified Inspectors will have the skills and knowledge to thermally inspect and assess dwellings and commercial buildings against a pass/fail criteria, but they aren't permitted to carry out in-depth analysis of images. Using a quantitative procedure they will present the thermal condition of a building envelope to clients (as either pass, fail or refer) using traffic light indicators for effective visual impact.
Why Join the Scheme
Building professionals can easily integrate thermal imaging for building surveys within their existing services, as an option for assessing the quality of insulation throughout a property. This type of survey is quite valuable in resolving disputes which involve heat loss and air leakage within buildings, due to the non-intrusive method which is undertaken.
Many professionals have already adopted this type of service:
- Energy Assessors are using infrared thermography to enhance the quality of their existing work and are offering this as a 'Value-add' service
- Air Tightness Testers, are enhancing their site testing services by highlighting actual air leakage pathways through thermal imaging
- Insulation installers, are using thermal imaging to demonstrate their work as thermally effective
- National house-builders, who wish to receive competent thermographic reports both at the handover stage or for cases of dispute resolution
- Roofing contractors are using this service to offer both digital and thermal evidence from roofs and other inaccessible areas.
With Elmhurst's Thermography Scheme, members will benefit from a significant competitive advantage due to the consistency and quality of their building thermal imaging surveys. Members of the scheme can drive up industry standards through the reliability and quality of their services- something which non-members will struggle to maintain.
