Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is an advanced & newer technology that inspectors use to get temperature details about a home, and assess how protected against environmental elements the home is.

What Thermal Imaging Is & Used For:

Infrared technology is changing home inspections dramatically and protecting homeowners – or soon to be homeowners – from costly issues. Infrared technology is used to scan a home & see the various temperatures that occur within the home.

A thermal camera is used to capture temperature images of a home’s surfaces, which is  otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Thermal scans are a non-disruptive method of scanning a surface to find potential problems like heat escaping through cracks & crevices, frigid incoming air, or moisture that may be leaking inside.

The temperatures captured by the camera are measured and calculated. The results give the homeowners or buyers a clear picture of the home and how that relates to its condition or overall efficiency.

Why Do I Need a Thermal Imaging Inspection?

Thermal imagery provides an immediate look at the condition of the home, without having to tear anything apart to see inside of walls.

Thermal Inspections Can Reveal:

  • The placement of studs and rafters that might not be to the code
  • Water penetration into roofs and ceiling surfaces
  • Moisture build up in building materials
  • Detection of missing or insufficient insulation
  • Electrical issues at points like breaker boxes, outlets, and switches
  • Detect plumbing & piping and their proper/improper installation
  • Impact on energy efficiency
  • Detection of pests
