Everett, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, a global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has released a new video that shows how building inspectors and contractors can grow their business using Fluke thermal imagers to detect unseen problems involving heat loss, moisture and electricity.
Hosted by Chip Wade, professional contractor and carpenter on the HGTV show Designed to Sell in Atlanta, the video is available online at www.fluke.com/inspection.
In six video segments, Wade discusses the principles of thermography and shows how to use the Fluke TiR1 thermal imager to inspect the structure of a home, detect moisture problems, uncover heat loss and airflow issues in heating and ventilation systems and inspect commercial buildings. Wade shows how thermal imaging can help an inspector or contractor build their business by solving problems for customers.
An Atlanta native, Wade graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering and became certified in residential construction while working as a structural engineer in a home building firm. In the fall of 2007, he joined HGTV's Designed to Sell team as the carpenter on the Atlanta team. His expertise and craftsmanship help the show exceed all expectations of what can be accomplished in a three-day makeover.
