Thermal Imaging

My thermal image camera helps me see what other inspectors can’t. That’s why I use thermal imaging on every inspection.

Thermal Inspections Can Reveal:

  • The placement of studs and rafters that might not be up to 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.
  • Plumbing & piping and their proper/improper installation.
  • Impact on energy efficiency.
  • Pests and infestations.

The purpose of an infrared scan is to find hidden issues and catch them before they become a major problem. 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. With the use of our infrared camera, we can help identify moisture, insulation, electrical, HVAC concerns, and more.
