Co-Authored by Ed Fronapfel “Infrared Applications for Post Construction Radiant Heating Systems” was published in Inframation 2004.
Abstract: This paper will review and discuss the benefits of infrared thermography as its technology applies to the investigations and inspections of various in-floor (interior) and concrete slab (interior and exterior) radiant heating systems, both electrical and fluid systems. The purpose of this paper is to outline the various applications of infrared thermography for investigation of the systems, as presented in a case study format. The technique illustrates how infrared can be utilized to determine such post-construction items as identification of system zones, failure or impeded heat loss analysis, sensor identification, leak analysis, and line system identifications for intrusive testing or slab coring.
