Advanced Thermal Imaging Techniques
Thermal imaging is a concept largely unexplored by pest management companies, yet an Infrared (IR) Camera is a tool that provides endless applications. After several months of inquisition, we decided to implement this technology as an addition to our company’s services. So far it has been incredibly well-received and generated much interest.
Thermal imaging is creating a picture by temperature differential. We can locate areas that are atypically hot or cool, allowing us to diagnose a potential issue before it becomes a serious problem. Concerning pest control, we utilize thermal imaging to discover gaps in your home’s envelope that allow pests access to the interior. Where there are gaps, air is either infiltrating or exfiltrating. Given the air on the interior of your home is a different temperature than the air on the exterior, we can see where air is sneaking in or air is sneaking out.
To exaggerate the effect of air exchange, we create a negative pressure on the interior of your home, forcing your home to draw air from the exterior through all gaps and unwarranted breaches. Drawing air in at a higher rate provides us a very clear picture of what areas need to be addressed…
