San Jose Attic Inspection
FLIR stands for Forward-Looking Infrared and is a very advanced form of technology that roofing companies use to determine the status of your roof. We are proud to offer FLIR thermal imaging during attic inspections for our San Jose customers.
The sensors installed in forward-looking infrared cameras use detection of infrared radiation, typically emitted from a heat source (thermal radiation), to create a “picture” assembled for video output.
This type of technology is commonly used to help pilots and drivers steer their vehicles at night and in fog. Now, more and more it is being used by companies like Westshore to detect energy loss or insulation defects in order to reduce HVAC energy consumption.
FLIR thermal cameras show exactly where the problems are quickly so we can focus on detecting moisture. An infrared camera helps pinpoint water intrusion, find moisture beneath the surface, and document dryness with accuracy and confidence.
In this infrared image, the deteriorated areas of the roof are clearly shown at the time of inspection. If we can pinpoint the problem, we can much more easily fix it in a timely manner – which saves you money. You’ll also be saving money each month on your electric bill if your home is no longer leaking valuable HVAC energy through the roof.
