Recording and analysing temp/RH levels identifies spikes, to help determine the risk of damp and mould in and outside properties.
Tinytag data loggers are helping thermographic survey specialist
iRed gather detailed information about temperature and relative
humidity levels in domestic properties. The recorded data
highlights spikes, and is combined with thermal images and a
process called Thermal Indexing to calculate the risk from mould
and damp. Tinytag
Ultra 2 TGU-4500 data loggers are used at various locations
indoors, while Plus
2 TGP-4520 data loggers are used to record outside temperatures
used as part of the thermal indexing equation.
Tim Mammatt is the Technical Manager at iRed and chose the units
as they were cost-effective, compact and portable. Tim comments,
"We use Tinytag data loggers for a number of different applications
as they are compact, accurate and have a decent battery life. The
collected data is easy is to analyse and combined with data from
our thermal imaging cameras, we can accurately determine the risk
of condensation and mould."

logger located outside the property. The pdf file shows a
typical thermal image which demonstrates the patterns that iRed
need to determine: notice the large gradient from floor to ceiling.
