Interior Infrared (Thermal) Scan
All of our inspections include infrared technology and is included in our pricing.
Infrared / thermal imaging measures and photographs the invisible infrared radiation (heat) that is emitted by all objects. This shows small differences in the surface temperatures of materials and allows graphic documentation. Inside a house, the inspector will use an infrared camera to look for anomalies that may indicate areas of concern. On walls and ceilings, this is effective at detecting moisture that is otherwise not visible to the eye. Insulation deficiencies in walls and attics and unwanted air infiltration will show as hotter or colder areas depending on the weather. Possible electrical malfunctions, such as a switch or breaker that is hotter than others may call for further inspection.
