H4GEO Service

This service helps to detect the source of heat loss, electrical overloads and water infiltration in roofs and walls

Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that uses infrared imaging used to identify areas of heat loss or gain, which can help identify potential problems with insulation, air leaks, or moisture intrusion.

Thermography can also help identify electrical faults, such as loose connections or overloaded circuits, which can cause fires or other safety hazards. By identifying these issues early, building owners or managers can take corrective action before serious damage occurs. Overall, thermography is a valuable tool for building assessment because it allows for the detection of problems that may not be visible to the naked eye.

This service includes the following steps:

  • Data acquisition by drone
  • Acquisition of thermographic and RGB images by drone
  • Processing and analysis
  • Orthomosaics
  • Writing of a final report

Why is Thermography Useful in Construction and Architecture?

Thermography is a technology based on detecting temperature variations using an infrared camera. It allows professionals in construction and architecture to visualize heat and cold variations on the surface of structures. This method reveals crucial information invisible to the naked eye, aiding in damage prevention and building maintenance.

What are the Advantages of Thermography?

Detection of Building Thermal Issues

Thermography is used for the early detection of thermal issues in both under-construction and existing buildings. It identifies areas with insulation defects, air leaks, water leaks, and other thermal anomalies. By pinpointing these issues, architects, engineers, and builders can quickly address them, improving energy efficiency and building comfort.

Inspection of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems

Thermography visualizes the heat distribution in these systems, identifying faulty or underperforming components. This information allows for targeted repairs or upgrades, reducing energy costs and extending equipment lifespan.

Roof Inspection

Thermography is also used for roof inspection. It can detect wet or damaged areas, membrane detachments, and water infiltrations. This capability helps professionals prevent costly structural problems related to moisture.

Safety for Employees and Occupants

Thermography enables you to conduct inspections safely. With the infrared camera, you can identify hot and potentially hazardous areas, such as electrical overloads, faulty connections, and overheating equipment, without putting your technical staff at risk. Additionally, this method helps prevent fires and electrical failures, ensuring a safer environment for building occupants.

Why Choose Thermography for Your Projects?

Thermography has become an essential tool in construction and architecture by providing an accurate thermal view of structures and systems.

It contributes to:

  •  Improving energy efficiency,
  • Preventing structural problems,
  • Extending equipment lifespan,
  • Enhancing safety.

For professionals in the construction, architecture, and engineering sectors, thermography is a key element to ensure the quality, performance, and sustainability of buildings.
