"Call us before or after the fire"
This page is dedicated to the exciting advances of infrared camera technology. Infrared cameras are very useful for non-destructive predictive maintenance, law enforcement, building maintenance and manufacturing quality control. By visually seeing heat with the use of an infrared imaging camera it is possible to avert problems before they become problems and make the necessary repairs or changes.
Horizon Energy Systems thermography team has over 22 years of combined experience in this field and has saved untold thousands of dollars in down time, equipment losses and damage. Our biannual predictive maintenance contracts allows building owners, building engineers and insurance companies the piece of mind knowing problems are accurately located, identified, classified and repaired before any damage or down time takes place.
Here is an excellent example of how a comprehensive, biannual predictive maintenance contract can save you down time, failures and money. A simple problem like this can be addressed before it gets serious.
Finding water trapped beneath a roofing system is possible using this technology and saves time and money.
Thermography scanning is also used for a variety of applications including medical, military, law enforcement, industrial and private use.
Recent advances and improvements in thermography equipment has allowed for smaller, portable scanners with exceptional sensitivity and resolution. Palmer Wahl has emerged as a key player with their new line of hand held, high resolution infrared cameras. Below is one example. Please bookmark this page as it is being updated with new products and exciting changes!

Our visual world. . . The world of thermography
One of the key elements of thermography is being able to report what is found. Therefore, the reporting software is very important and must be easy to use and understood by those making the reparations. The HSI 3000 software is easy to input simple to read and for a limited time will be included with all new purchases.

Pictures from various IR cameras
Two adults and child on a sofa The child left a warmer signature because their skin is thinner and more heat is lost
This is a typical pot shelf in a residence. On the other side
of the vertical wall is 145F degree attic air.
Notice the bright white areas behind the vases on the shelf? A thermography camera shows the heat being wasted from a piece of insulation that has fallen off the back of the knee wall. This is a very common scene in many of our home energy audits. In commercial applications we have found bad breakers, loose breakers, phase imbalances, overloaded lines, bad transformers, missing exterior insulation and attic insulation.
