An infrared thermography survey of Rosslyn Chapel was carried out in May 2009. Infrared cameras produces digital images similar to normal visual images, but using infrared rather than visible light. The thermal image is, in effect, a map of surface temperature. It gives us information about a building’s heat loss, detects air leakage, locates dampness and identifies problems such as voids or blistering of surfaces.
