Normally, our vision is limited to a very small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. With thermal imaging, we measure thermal energy emitted from objects. What this means to us and for our purposes is that we are able to detect heat loss and deficiencies not visible to the naked eye. We are able to determine where heat loss is occurring, where pipes are failing behind walls, areas of moisture intrusion, lack of insulation in finished walls, attic spaces and more !!
