Thermal Imaging

Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show clients things about their homes or buildings that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods. Would you go to a dentist who didn’t take X-rays? Hiring a home inspector who doesn’t make use of thermal imaging is like hiring a dentist who doesn’t use X-rays. No matter how good or experienced the home inspector is, many things simply can’t be seen without thermal imaging, otherwise known as infrared thermography. If you don’t want to take a chance on your investment,

then you want to make sure that the home inspector you hire is using the most cutting-edge technology available, including a thermal imaging camera, to reveal defects otherwise hidden to the naked eye.

Thermal Imaging Can Check:

  • Water infiltration  (roof leaks located with recent rain fall within 24~48 hours)

  • Insulation gaps, insufficient and unevenness

  • Cold air infiltration

  • Stud / Joist / Beam / Rafter placement and structure

  • Excessive moisture in building materials

  • Electrical drops, panels, breakers, switches and wire connections

  • Heating and cooling duct placement, insulation, air leaks

  • Pipe locations
