Thermography Condition Based Maintenance & Inspections

In straightforward terms, thermography is the use of a technologically advanced infrared imaging camera to detect and measure heat sources that are emitting from a certain area or object.

Sounds fancy, but as you can imagine, these tools represent a potent part of your indoor air quality arsenal.

As the cost of technology has decreased, these advanced technologies are without question a foundational tool in the maintenance and remediation of your commercial or industrial facilities indoor air quality needs.

Indications that suggest the need for Infrared Thermography Maintenance:

  • Cracked paint in the ceilings or walls of your building that you suspect may be concealing hidden water damage and widespread mold
  • Strong mildew odors that you cannot pinpoint the source
  • A discoloration in ceilings or walls from water damage, but not clear where the leak is originating
  • Even though the sewage leak was "fixed" and new carpeting was installed, you have reason to believe that the walls or floor boards may have been subjected to mold infestation
The Old vs. The New

The old way to handle these common problems and the resultant fungi amplifying in your walls, floors or ceilings was to pay big money for what equated to a mini-demolition zone in your commercial or industrial office space.

The impact of this one size fits all "solution" to this type of problem was plainly evident, routinely causing significant downtime and interruption in your business.

The new way to handle these types of problems is far different and less invasive.

The use of infrared thermal imaging technologies changes the game. These advanced technologies can definitively pinpoint areas of exposure and just importantly, clearly present the areas to you that do not require remediation or sanitization.

No longer will you have to ask yourself, "Am I paying to fix something that isn't broken?"

In the end however, moisture, water leaks, mold and all the big words and fear that are associated with these topics still need to be addressed.

Not only do you have a right to provide a safe workplace for your employees, it is only prudent to be proactive in limiting the potential for insurance claims, increased health costs and carefully consider the means used to fix these problems as well.

The CORE Connection

Many self-proclaimed indoor air quality specialists happen to also be self-appointed.

In reality, they have not invested in any industry level certifications or training.

At CORE, our infrared thermographic specialists have been approved for Level 1 Thermography certification by the Infrared Training Center, the recognized authority in this unique discipline within the indoor air quality industry. We have considerable experience in both the investigative and predictive use of this advanced technology.

We've invested in our specialists to gain this level of acknowledged expertise in order to improve the depth of our service offerings for our clients and to ensure that our efforts are aligned with the best practices as dictated by the leaders in this groundbreaking field.

CORE's investment does not stop at the training however. We compliment this top tier learning and best practice with the most powerful infrared thermographic equipment for use in our industry. We only use the top of the line cameras produced by Flir.

These investments are no small distinction. Advances in technology tend to be nothing more than an opportunity for non-accredited organizations to buy "buzzword" (inferior) equipment to improve the perception of their service offerings. Inferior technology and a lack of industry accepted training, equates to unnecessary air quality risks for your commercial or industrial facility.

CORE's widely acknowledged industry certification and top of the line technology helps us to deliver the highest quality thermographic imaging results that clearly distinguish the problem areas at hand and where moisture has infiltrated.

We provide top of the line services that produce bottom line results.

The Importance of Working With a State Licensed Air Conditioning Contractorstate-licensed-air-conditioning-contractor

To deal with the problems arising from slowly deteriorating IAQ, commercial and industrial facilities need to ensure that the AC ducts are cleaned and serviced regularly and that their equipment has been optimized in accordance with ASHRAE standards.

The reality is that with so much at stake, it does not pay to work with unlicensed contractors who often lack the education, hands-on training and cutting edge technologies granted by state licensing.

As a certified member in good standing of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), Core is an industry leading HVAC service provider and offers varied services to improve ventilation and system optimization. In addition, Core offers repair, maintenance and often total system replacements to industrial and commercial facilities.
