Infrared cameras expand the range of services offered by building sector specialists and allows them to better serve their customer groups. Using an infrared camera suitable for building applications before and/or after every building valuation, transaction, or major HVAC repair maximizes value and minimizes costs.
Samenwerkende Adviseurs Nederland is a building consulting bureau which consists of building business experts in all fields. SAN’s experts advise architects, owners, project developers, local authorities, construction companies on HVAC issues, electrical installations and energy issues in line with the building physics.
Most public buildings need specific rules with regard to safety, security, heating, ventilation and electrical facilities. SAN takes care of the growing judicial, technical prescriptions that rule utility buildings – from an indoor shooting range to a hospital.
SAN also calculates energy performance of new and existing buildings, thereby following the European Union directives that are about to be implemented in most member states. But this not the only reason for SAN to invest in thermography in general and into a top-of-the range infrared camera such as the ThermaCAM P640 in particular.
SAN has invested in this handheld thermal camera with a resolution of 640x480 pixels. They have quickly come to understand the added value of the ThermaCAM Reporter 8 reporting software, a suite for analysis, fine-tuning of the measurements and presentation.
Infrared thermography is an economical way to discover construction failures and to communicate them. Infrared cameras contribute to :
- checking repair quality
- detecting long-time construction damages
- detecting and preventing mold and decay
- preventing formation of condensation
- reventing humidity intrusion in building
- reducing heating costs
- preserving the building substance
- supporting contractors in warranty claims
ThermaCAM P640 infrared cameras are available from FLIR Systems Australia .
