Enviro-Equipment, Inc. Adds Infrared Camera Rental for Energy Auditing and Building Diagnostics

Due to increasing demand for infrared camera rentals for residential energy auditing and building diagnostics, Enviro-Equipment, Inc. adds the Testo 875-2i Infrared Camera to its inventory. The camera exceeds BPI/RESNET performance requirements for thermal imagers.

Charlotte, NC - June 20, 2011 – Enviro-Equipment, Inc., a provider of environmental equipment rentals and supplies, expands its rental inventory to the residential energy auditing and building diagnostics industries with the addition of the new Testo 875-2i Infrared Camera for thermal imaging.  With this technology a user can discover energy loss, weak spots, and anomalies in buildings quickly and damage-free.  Building inspectors use the Testo 875-2i to test heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, to pinpoint roof leaks, to identify mold risk areas, and discover pipe rupture without opening floors and walls to pinpoint the leak.

According to Rand Ratterree, Enviro-Equipment’s Branch Manager, “We chose the Testo 875-2i over other brands and models of handheld cameras because it exceeds The Building Performance Institute (BPI) and Residential Energy Services NETwork (RESNET) for energy auditing performance requirements for thermal imagers.  The Testo has a higher image resolution, longer operation time, advanced reporting software, and an integrated digital camera.  It is also rugged and easy to use, even for beginners.”

The main features of the Testo 875-2i are:

  • Exceptional image quality 
    320 x 420 pixel camera resolution and a temperature resolution (NETD) of < 80mK or 0.08°C, even minimal temperature differences are shown.
  • Detection of condensation areas 
    Pinpoint potential high risk moisture areas and avoid mold growth with a thermal scan.
  • Integrated digital camera 
    View both the infrared and digital image simultaneously for faster and more reliable diagnosis of a measurement area.
  • Automatic Hot/Cold Spot Indicator 
    Automatically pinpoint the hottest and coldest spot of a measurement object or area and mark them in the thermal imager display.

“Adding the Testo Infrared Camera to our existing mold, moisture, and indoor air quality rental equipment allows us to expand further into environmental assessment applications for building related industries,” says Denise Chew, President of Enviro-Equipment, Inc.  “This investment emphasizes our commitment to our customers by offering the latest thermal imaging technology available for nondestructive testing.”
