Wether from an incident of water damage or the inability to ventilate a home properly finding 

Under this window we see a cold area, which led to an investigation in the crawlspace that revealed a leaky hose bibb.

Is it expensive?

Compared to cutting into structure surfaces, infrared cameras are Inexpensive in nature. IR thermography is used as a valuable instrument because it can detect the hidden elements of home structures. Additionally, it serves as a cost-effective method for conducting assessments on a home's thermal and moisture envelope. Adding an IR scan to your inspection is an additional $149. 

What do we look for?

Infrared cameras are effective at locating hot or cold  spots in the home, including:

  • Unintended gaps in insulation

  • Overheated electrical equipment and components

  • Electrical faults before they cause a fire

  • Faults with electric or hydronic in-floor or in-ceiling heating

With infrared photo imaging we can confirm the functionality of in-floor heating.

Here we see a warm area in an attic. This led to an investigation revealing a wasps nest. 

By interpreting the color gradients present in thermal images, an inspector can identify various elements including:

  • Indicators of a potential invasion by wood-destroying insects become apparent as energy seeps through shelter tubes left behind.

  • Within the structure, hidden creatures like rats, mice, and other substantial pests can be detected through their  heat signatures captured by the IR camera.

  • The identification of  flue leaks. This is imperative, as they carry the potential for carbon monoxide poisoning among the home's occupants.

Here you see a toilet with no signs of leaking around the base. 

Regarding energy loss, an infrared camera is capable of identifying:
 
  • Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors.

  • Absence of insulation.

  • Impaired or malfunctioning radiant heating systems.

  • Leaks in HVAC compressor units.
