What is Thermal Imaging?

Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to locate a wide range of plumbing and heating problems non-invasively.

Thermal Imaging cameras can trace pipework and blockages far more effectively and cheaply than previously. For instance, tracing blockages or problems in underfloor heating systems can be difficult and expensive. Thermal imaging pinpoints problems and remedial work is minimised.

The Benefits of Thermal Imaging

  •   Easily detecting Pipework in Floors, Walls and Ceilings
  •   Easily detecting Pipework in Floors, Walls and Ceilings
  •   Locate Blockages in heating circuits.
  •   Helps find leaks under floors.
  •   Helps find Roof Leaks.
  •   Helps detect Electrical overheating.
  •   Detect flow issues through valves and ‘Y’ strainers.
  •   Trace Under Floor Heating loops.

Thermal Imaging in Action

These two photographs, taken simultaneously, demonstrate the effectiveness of thermal imaging in working with hidden water pipes like this underfloor heating system.

The client wanted to build a partition wall from one side of this space to the other but needed to know precisely where the underfloor heating pipes were.
