Thermal Imaging

See into your home

Add-On Service

A full Scan of the home allows us to see beyond the visible spectrum. Infrared anomalies can help us determine where there is a need for further investigation. Find out where your home stands regarding moisture intrusion, insulation coverage, electrical hot spots and more. ....

Advanced Thermal Imaging Inspection

What is Thermal imaging?

Infrared thermography is a relatively economical building diagnostic technique, used to perform surveys of the thermal and moisture envelope of a home. It is also an effective tool for examining the structural components of buildings.

What do we look for?

Infared cameras are equally effective at locating hot spots in the home, including:

  • Circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement

  • Overloaded and undersized circuits

  • Overheated electrical equipment and components

  • Electrical faults before they cause a fire

Additionally, based on the color gradients that thermal images provide, an inspector can locate:

  • Possible pest infestation, as revealed by energy loss through shelter tubes left by boring wood-destroying insects.

  • The presence of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure and detected because of their heat signature that the IR camera captures.

  • Dangerous flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning of the home’s residents.

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

In terms of energy loss, an Infared camera can detect:

  • Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors

  • Damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems

  • Air-conditioner compressor leaks

  • Under-fastening and/or missing framing members

  • Broken seals in double-paned windows.

Under this window we see a cold area, which led to an investigation in the crawlspace.
