Thermography enables us to see and measure heat. All materials on Earth emit heat energy, in the infrared portion of the spectrum. Unfortunately, the unaided human eye cannot see in the infrared. Thermographic, or simply thermal images, allow the user to see thermally, revealing anomalies that in turn identify problems in the building and their component electrical, mechanical, plumbing and waterproofing systems. Today's infrared cameras cannot only see in real-time but can also record infrared images and measure the temperatures of target objects quite accurately to within 1/10 of a Fahrenheit degree or better. Points of possible concern show up clearly as hot or cold in relation to their surroundings. Recorded thermal images can be easily inserted into reports and e-mailed, greatly facilitating communications among traders, attorneys, and other professions and serving as invaluable, rational, evidentiary dates in cases involving controversy.
