Air and Energy Solutions is a Leader in Energy Efficiency Design. Our thermographers are certified to ASNT standards. The AES team also specializes in building diagnostics, whole building air leakage testing, residential/commercial energy audits, green building technology and thermography. We have 25 years experience and training in industrial process electrical and controls, making Air and Energy Solutions the obvious choice for your industrial predictive maintenance partner. Since we are also Jackson's premier commercial heating and air conditioning providers, we have the background to understand how heat is being transferred (gained or lost). There is no building too small or too big to test; we have successfully tested and performed thermographic inspections on some of the biggest buildings in Jackson TN. We service most of Western Tennessee, bringing energy efficiency, durability and comfort to every corner from Memphis to Jackson and North Mississippi. Give Air and Energy Solutions a chance to show you how to make a difference in your home and business with affordable, comfortable, healthy living spaces.

Thermography measures surface temperatures (heat) by using infrared video and still cameras. These tools see light that is in the heat spectrum. Images on the video or film record the temperature variations of the building's skin and surface temperatures of materials, ranging from white for warm regions to black for cooler areas. The resulting images help the auditor determine whether insulation is needed. They also serve as a quality control tool, to ensure that insulation has been installed correctly.

Thermography uses specially designed infrared video or still cameras to make images (called thermograms) that show surface heat variations. This technology has a number of applications. Thermograms of electrical systems can detect abnormally hot electrical connections or components. Thermograms of mechanical systems can detect the heat created by excessive friction. Energy auditors use thermography as a tool to help detect heat losses and air leakage in building envelopes.

Infrared scanning allows energy auditors and industrial thermographers to check the effectiveness of insulation in a building's construction and industrial plant processes. The resulting thermograms help auditors determine an appropriate course of action to correct any thermal anomalies. 

In addition to using thermography during an energy assessment, you should have a scan done before purchasing a house; even new houses can have defects in their thermal envelopes. NEVER BUY A HOUSE WITHOUT FIRST HAVING IT INSPECTED WITH INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY!You may wish to include a clause in the contract requiring a thermographic scan of the house. A thermographic scan performed by a TRAINED AND CERTIFIED technician is usually accurate enough to use as documentation in court proceedings.

The CERTIFIED THERMOGRAPHER may use one of several types of infrared sensing devices in an on-site inspection.

A spot radiometer (also called a point radiometer) is the simplest. It measures radiation one spot at a time, with a simple meter reading showing the temperature of a given spot. Spot radiometers are inexpensive but not of much use in a thermographic inspection

A thermal line scanner shows radiant temperature viewed along a line. Thermal line scanners are older technology and rarely used in today's inspections.

The most accurate thermographic inspection device is a thermal imaging camera, which produces a 2-dimensional thermal picture of an area showing heat leakage. Spot radiometers and thermal line scanners do not provide the necessary detail for a complete Thermal Imaging assessment. Infrared film used in a conventional camera is not sensitive enough to detect heat loss. Recent advances in technology have given rise to a new generation of "cheap", low resolutions thermal imagers that offer incomplete and questionable thermograms that are not suitable for commercial or industrial use. A high-resolution imager in the hands of a trained and certified thermographer is a valuable tool. Low resolution imagers and untrained operators cause more confusion and cost money in the long run. Always insist on high resolution equipment and trained and certified thermographers. Always ask for credentials before contracting with any thermographer.

Why Use only Certified Infrared Thermographers?

Infrared thermographic cameras have become very user friendly in the past few years. Taking a thermographic image is just about as easy as "point and shoot". Sounds easy right? Not so fast! A thermographic camera has to be configured correctly to be of any use at all. Also, the popularity of thermographic imaging had given rise to a generation of "cheap" low resolution imagers or little real use. Once the images have been created, they must be processed and interpreted correctly to provide useful information. A thermographer that is certified to ASND standards has undergone extensive training and has verifiable credentials to correctly generate useful thermograms and correctly interpret them. An incorrectly interpreted thermogram can suggest problems where none exist or fail to raise an alarm where a "real" problem does exist. Infrared thermography is a valuable and cost effective tool, but the only guarantee of having useful images is by employing only a correctly trained and certified thermographer.
