What Is a Thermal Imaging Inspection?
Thermal imaging is a non-invasive technology that allows home inspectors to reveal thermal defects and air leakages inside of buildings. Our inspectors will use an infrared camera to reveal hot and cold spots within the home. At the culmination of our inspection, we will provide you with an online report complete with photos to reveal our findings.
What Kinds of Problems Are Revealed by Thermal Imaging?As previously mentioned, thermal imaging reveals hot and colds spots within the home. These temperature gradients are indicative of moisture problems, energy loss, and/or electrical concerns. Specifically, an infrared inspection can reveal:
- Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors
- HVAC leaks
- Malfunctioning radiant heating systems
- Plumbing leaks
- Hidden roof leaks
- Missing, wet, or damaged insulation
- Foundations cracks/leaks
- Electrical faults, including faulty breakers, overloaded circuits, and overheated equipment
- Possible pest and rodent infestations
