THERMOGRAFIC SURVEYS

In the process of building energy certification, the theoretical parameters are entered in the energy simulation software that models the building and determines the theoretical energy performance and energy rating.

If you are purchasing a home, you want to know the energy situation regardless of the theoretical energy rating you have. This enables you a higher bargaining power in the sale.IR_2000-01-01_0092In this sense, a thermographic inspection is needed to document the thermal bridges and house pathologies. Thereby, we’ll know the areas that need to strengthen their isolation, avoiding energy losses and condensation zones that could form the formation of mold colonies.

their isolation, avoiding energy losses and condensation zones that could form the formation of mold colonies.IR_2012-02-07_0019Almost half of the energy losses are a home air infiltration heat load contributing contrary to the comfort inside the house. The tightness test measured blower-door and locates infiltration, so that simple actions with considerable savings are achieved.

resoluciones3Due to the low thermal amplitude of building anomalies, we need high sensitivity and resolution thermal cameras, and a solid formation in thermographic procedures. Our team includes professional thermographer with Level II certification in infrared thermography, and high resolution cameras(640 x 480 IR pixels), which gives you complete reports according to European Standard EN 13187
