Thermographic analysis
Thermographic analysis is a procedure that can be used to obtain a visual representation of the thermal dispersion of a building.

In fact, thermographic machines can detect the infrared radiation emitted by bodies subjected to thermal stress; this frequency range is invisible to the human eye.

A thermographic analysis can highlight the weak points of the building envelope, in a non- invasive manner. In addition to constituting significant points of thermal dispersion, these weak points, or thermal bridges, are the main cause of structural damage (humidity due to condensation problems, mould, etc.).
Thermographic analysis is particularly useful when calculating a restructuring programme. In fact, if the most critical points have been identified, it is possible to act in a manner that is more targeted and informed.

Thermographic analyses of a building can be conducted only in winter (from November to April, roughly speaking).
