Paper Abstract

At a time when rising fuel costs and energy conservation are of prime concern, roof thermography is a vitally important test method for reducing energy costs, particularly when you consider that 70% of heat loss from the skin of most single storey buildings occurs through the roof. Empirical data indicates that the use of thermography for analyzing the thermal integrity of roofs and detecting subsurface moisture is, for the most part, substantially more effective when utilized on the roof than in aerial (airborne) survey work. However, the method selected will depend on the problems being investigated and the information desired.
