IR Thermography is a technology that enables us to see “thermal energy” or heat.
Thermography has a long history but in recent years has become a state-of-the-art tool for detecting a variety of types of heat presence and heat loss in many types of commercial, industrial and residential structures.
The term IR Thermography is actually a combination of words and fields:
Infrared Radiation, or “IR”, means “below red”. Red is the color of visible light of the longest wavelength. Infrared radiation spans three orders of magnitude and has wavelengths between 0.7 um and 1000 um.
Thermography is the process of acquisition and analysis of thermal information from non-contact thermal imaging devices.
