|Heat loss on a hot water system or steam circuit due to poor or missing insulation may reduce the overall efficiency from source to end user by up to 50%.|
Thermal imaging can quickly and efficiently identify pipe-work that requires remedial work. Imagine a pipe run with several services running side by side with different sized pipes. Thermal imaging can be used to determine the temperature along each pipe, assess whether there is a breakdown in insulation or whether there's insufficient, missing, or damaged insulation.
A simple visual inspection can determine where there is missing insulation, but only thermal imaging can be used to calculate heat losses.
