Thermal Energy Audit
  • Any surface above absolute zero temperature emits infrared radiation which can be measured on infrared spectral band of electromagnetic spectrum.
  • Thermography procedure is an extremely easy method of practically monitoring, sensing and recording the surface heating and temperature without touching the surface.
  • Thermal camera is used to capture the heat images of surface of objects.

Why should one go for Thermography ?
  • Energy Savings: Acknowledging and updating energy inefficiencies automatically reduces a building's demand for energy. An energy audit also increases the building owner's knowledge of operating systems and their proper maintenance, which subsequently further decreases energy usage.
  • Financial Savings: Energy savings and financial savings go hand-in-hand. By identifying and committing to strategies that help reduce energy consumption, a building's energy costs can be greatly reduced.
  • Increased Occupant Comfort: Indoor environmental quality and overall occupant comfort levels can be raised by simply managing select systems in a building. For example, by upgrading an HVAC system, air flow can be regulated by providing heating and cooling  only when necessary. Improved lighting levels can also create a more comfortable atmosphere while reducing energy costs.

IA offers high end Thermography
  • We can detect electrical problems of improper connections, load imbalance, overloads, arching, corona at motors, panels, capacitors, cables, transformers & bus bars through our highly sensitive thermography instruments.
  • We can detect thermal/mechanical problems of leaks like air/steam, levels, misalignment, stress corrosion, cracking areas for mechanical utilities such as shaft, pipes, furnaces, blowers, air compressors.
  • Thermography only identifies surface temperatures, and we provide analytical reports to determine the reasons for the patterns within the surface temperatures.
