WHAT IS THERMAL IMAGING?
Thermal Imaging is when an infrared (thermal) camera is used to locate issues within and outside of a home that may be difficult or impossibly to see without its technology.
Our home inspectors are trained to use these cameras and understand what issues may be present based on what is seen through the camera.
Infrared thermography (IRT) is the science used to capture and process thermal information using non-contact measurement tools. This is done by analyzing infrared (IR) radiation emitted from an object whose temperature is above absolute zero. Because this wavelength exists outside of the visible spectrum of light, infrared measuring devices are required to capture and process this information.
ISSUES THAT MAY BE REVEALED
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
Defects with the HVAC system
