Also, thermal imaging gives us an advantage of finding missing or improper installed insulation spots, which may result in air leakage.

3. Mold and moisture problems.
Mold can cause many health problems. These include allergic reactions and toxic effects due to mycotoxins. Because of these possible health issues it is extremely important to be able to detect mold in a house. One method that can be used to detect mold in a house is by using infrared imaging. Heat radiation allows us to see the existence of moisture inside of walls that cannot be seen by the human eye. Moisture and similar conditions can promote mold growth. Mold related problems can be detected by the camera before there are signs that are visible or noticeable by other senses, such as smell. Temperature measurements should be also taken into consideration to make an informed decision about the possible mold growth. By comparing the temperature measurements with infrared readings of similar structures in the area, it is possible to decide if a significant temperature rise will encourage mold growth.
