Infrared Moisture & Building Inspections
Looking for building inspection in Auckland, or a builders report Auckland? Or are you searching for house inspections Auckland?
City Line Infrared is here to scan you home for moisture. Whether this is for a building inspection, pre-purchase inspection, leaky home building report or you have a home you want to check its condition.
We are here to help you with pre-purchase house inspections, pre-sale inspections, building inspections and leak detection inspections to find a hidden leak.
We use leading edge Infrared thermal imaging equipment to find moisture that can be missed with conventional moisture meters.
Our sophisticated, reporting software, gives both analytical and visual reporting as well as producing a moisture readings for properties inspected. By conducting our Infrared leak detection services/thermal imaging inspections, potential troubles can be identified and expensive rebuilds avoided.
Just because you don’t see a problem, this does not mean there isn’t one, as most leaks are not visually detected for 2 to 3 years after the leak starts. This gives plenty of time for timber to rot and damage the inside structure of your home.
Don’t delay, ask for a infrared house inspection now and find the problem before it does any damage.
We started up City Line Infrared over 11 years ago when leaky homes started becoming a big problem for people buying a house.
We wanted to give people more information around the house they were buying and also the condition of the house they owned.
Our infrared camera is one of our many tools we use in conjunction with moisture meters to give our clients the most information possible.
Over the years we have also got involved with invasive testing in many of the worst leaky homes, this gives us practical experience of knowing where leaks can occur and how they track through a house.
Why Use Infrared?
- Non invasive testing
- Track any heat loss
- Accurate temperature
- Track & Trace Leaks
- Visualization of problem
- Quick identification
What is infrared?
Infrared (IR) energy is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Every object above ‘Absolute Zero’ emits electromagnetic radiation or heat. The higher the object’s temperature, the greater the Infrared radiation emitted. Infrared thermography cameras allow us to see what our eyes cannot see.
A thermography infrared camera is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image on a video monitor and perform temperature calculations. Heat sensed by an infrared camera can be very precisely quantified, or measured, allowing you to not only monitor thermal performance, but also identify and evaluate the relative severity of heat-related problems.
When water/moisture exists in a building, it heats up faster or slower than in surrounding materials, thus letting the infrared camera pick up the difference in temperature. On completion of the City Line IR inspection the images will be analysed and you will be provided with a comprehensive report of the results.
