Please join The Snell Group at the 2013 ACI ACI National Home Performance Conference in Dever, Colorado. Snell Instructor and consultant, Matt Schwoegler, will be presenting two different sessions on Tuesday, April 30 and Wednesday, May 1.
The Snell Group will be presenting “What Every Building Thermographer Should Know” on Tuesday, April 30, from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m..
This 4-hour workshop will cover infrared equipment operation, including how to capture quality data with a thermal imager. A number of live experiments are planned that will demonstrate ways in which participants can practice with their camera while also re-enforcing important principles of basic heat transfer theory as it relates to a building thermographer. Situations and examples identifying energy problems in buildings with infrared will be discussed. There will also be content on how to use a thermal imager to identify electrical safety hazards and moisture related issues within a home.
By attending this session, participants will learn what is required to capture quality thermal data with an infrared camera, observe live experiments that will demonstrate which IR camera functions and features are used to create the best possible images, and understand limitations of the technology and discuss cases when it may be difficult to capture quality data. CEUs are available.
Additionally, The Snell Group will also be presenting "Infrared Cameras: Features & Specifications Explained" on Wednesday, May 1, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
This session will cover which camera features and specifications are important to consider when purchasing a thermal imager and which ones are not. Attendees will learn how to cut through the marketing and advertising clutter to find the right information to make a purchase decision. Attend this session to get advice on how to buy an infrared system, including performing a needs analysis, handling the sales process, and budgeting for the appropriate equipment.By attending this session, participants will receive an overview of the latest infrared cameras and pricing available in the market, learn which equipment specifications are important to consider when purchasing a thermal imager for building applications, and gain insight on how to perform a needs analysis as well as how to best approach the sales process.
