PRESS RELEASE : Chip Wade teams with Fluke to teach thermal imaging techniques

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the 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 Chip Wade Building 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.

Fluke thermal imagers have many applications in a multitude of industries. New thermal imagers from Fluke, including the Fluke Ti25, Fluke Ti10, Fluke TiR1 and Fluke TiR Thermal Imagers, deliver more durability and performance at a lower price than ever before, bringing the benefits of thermography to the toolboxes of everyday technicians and contractors.

Atlanta native Chip Wade comes from a line of experienced carpenters and woodcraftsmen. 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.
