Paper Abstract

Infrared Thermography is a quick, positive and economical method of identifying infiltration and exfiltration of air around. windows, construction joints and foundations of school buildings. The method can be successfully utilized to detect problems with the heating and ventilating systems and to detect moisture beneath the roofing membranes which lowers the R factor of the insulation. The cost to complete and document an Infrared Thermographic survey of an elementary school building varies between. 2.c. and 5,1. per square foot. Infrared Thermography also has the capability t detect heat losses in many areas which normally appear to be efficient in retaining heat within the building.
