Modern Thermal Imaging technology can detect a leak or burst pipe behind obstacles with minimum disruption and no damage to your property.
Oakleafe’s Leak Detection specialists use more than one method of leak detection to confirm and accurately locate your leak. Thermal imaging cameras are used to find hidden leaks under floors, behind walls and are an essential part of our engineers’ tool kit.
Thermal imaging cameras record light as heat and can show this in a picture. The Infrared energy (thermal) is a light we can’t see but we can sense as heat. Thermal imaging cameras identify very small differences in temperature on the surface of different materials, highlighting the warmer and the colder surface areas providing evidence of where the leak is originating. Our engineers have many years of experience in detecting leaks and use their knowledge to analyse thermal imaging results against their other findings. Thermal imaging cameras can look at large areas quickly compared to other types of leak detection methods and can see major losses of heat or potential damp problems on the exterior of your property.
