Before you buy a home, you should ask your inspector if he uses infrared technology.
Normal home inspectors do not use thermal imaging, which is sometimes referred to as “infrared.” This equipment can be expensive but provides an infinite amount of information to help the inspector analyze your house.
Infrared testing provides detailed information about the condition of your home
Providing temperature readings far beyond the capabilities of the human eye, infrared technology can instantly provide detailed insight into the condition of systems and the home. Whether you’re looking for HVAC issues, moisture intrusion, insulation or energy, infrared imaging can detect the issues very rapidly.
Infrared testing can reveal hidden issues
Again, because of its ability to capture more information than the human eye you will learn about current issues and areas where your home is at risk for developing an even larger issue. Issues infrared can detect include: water problems, missing or fallen insulation, clogs in plumbing systems, radiant heat issues and HVAC deficiencies.
Infrared is a tool that tells you. your home inspector is serious about his profession
By hiring an inspector who uses infrared technology, you are increasing your chances of getting a superior home inspection and working with a home inspector that wants to provide the most accurate information to their client, for the same fee as a normal inspector.
While other home inspectors are looking at the walls we are looking inside them.
All our Inspections include a free Infrared Thermal Imaging Scan!! *
Want to know how an IR camera works? An infrared camera is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image on a video monitor and perform temperature calculations. Heat sensed by an infrared camera can be very precisely quantified, or measured, allowing you to not only monitor thermal performance, but also identify and evaluate the relative severity of heat-related problems.
