FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WISCONSIN NON-PROFIT ANNOUNCES LOW COST THERMAL IMAGING TRAINING
Milwaukee, WI (January 1, 2010) – The non-profit, Wisconsin Chapter of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (http://www.winachi.com) is hosting a Thermal Imaging & Building Science course on January 29 & 30 at the course at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee.
Home & building inspectors, contractors, insurance adjustors, energy auditors, or anyone interested in the field of thermal imaging, can participate in this high quality thermal imaging training for a fraction of the cost of commercial training.
We live and work in buildings that can develop quality and performance issues during construction and maintenance that can have a negative affect on the comfort and safety of the occupants.
Concealed, missing, damaged or poorly performing insulation, poor HVAC performance or distribution or air-leakage around the perimeter of the building envelope can lead to excessive energy use. Hidden leaks, condensation and ice damage to sloped roofs can result in moisture damage, structural performance problems, mold growth or other health related issues including “sick building syndrome”. Invisible hot spots in electrical wiring and system can be dangerous. All these major problems can be difficult to diagnose and correct by conventional means.
No matter what type of building, infrared cameras can provide an extraordinary, nondestructive account of construction details, building performance and potential hazards.
“Our goal in providing this course, is to address the growing need for qualified building thermographers. Home inspectors and others in related professions have been adversely affected by the crash of the “housing bubble”. We hope to enable professionals to offer thermal imaging services at a much lower cost than comparable commercial training, without sacrificing quality”; explained Scott LeMarr, WiNACHI Vice-President.
