Blog #032 – Your THERMOGRAPHY COMFORT LEVEL – Exercise #6 – insulation detection!

Review blog #31 and continue with the exercises.

As you view the wall with your infrared camera in the blue/red palette you see the following image.  Cool wall cavity areas (darker color) and warmer framing (lighter color).

Scenario #11 – viewed from inside during heating season (winter – solar loading)- Is the wall insulated?

Scenario #11 – Insulated

Again, first ask: “Where is the heat source?  Outside surface or inside surface?”   And then identify the path of least resistance.  Practice, practice, practice! 


How’s your comfort level in thermography?
