IAQ Website of the Month

Resources for Infrared

Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month.  The excerpt below was originally published in the September 2011 newsletter.

Do you want to learn how infrared cameras might be used as part of an IAQ assessment? Would like to better understand what infrared cameras can and can’t do?

This month’s featured website provides free online training on a wide range of topics related to infrared thermography. The Infrared Training Center is run by a large manufacturer of infrared cameras, FLIR Systems. They offer free camera specific training, but I would like to highlight a few classes on general infrared thermography.

I recommend the following:

Thermography Basics
Introduction to IR Camera Operation
Introduction to Residential Energy Audits using IR Thermography

Although these classes are free, you’ll need to register on the website to access the content.

The same organization has a YouTube Channel and a blog. You might enjoy some of their videos such as What the heck is Emissivity?

Another manufacturer, Fluke, also has free resources on their website. They have great application notes for the following areas:

Home inspection
Restoration and remediation
Energy audits and weatherization
Commercial maintenance

Hopefully these resources will help you better understand how to get the most out of an infrared camera.
