Thermal imaging

Thermal imaging

Thermal imaging reveals surface temperature variations which can identify anomalies in the home. The purple areas or “anomalies” in the image were checked with a moisture meter and found to be wet from a leaking shower. In all of these cases the temperature anomalies were not visible to the eye. Thermal cameras can be used to identify areas of energy loss, missing insulation, air leaks in HVAC systems, water damage, over heating electrical components and much more. A thermal camera will give you thousands of accurate temperature readings in every image, so you’ll get the whole picture.

Missing Insulation

Adding thermal imaging to your home inspection can identify areas of heat loss that are invisible to the naked eye. Locate areas with missing or damaged insulation quickly by detecting the temperature differences compared to surrounding areas.

Air Infiltration

Thermal imaging will detect air leaks around windows, doors and other openings within the home. This information can be used to improve energy efficiency and lead to savings on energy costs.

Building Diagnostics

Some moisture issues are not visible without the use of a thermal imaging. Small areas of moisture or water damage can be easy to spot with an infrared camera. Locate and repair hidden water damage before small problems become larger ones.

Electrical

A variety of problems can be discovered in electrical equipment such as loose electrical connections and overloaded circuits.

HVAC

Discover heating and cooling duct leaks and identify excessive heat issues with air conditioners and heaters to maximize energy efficiency.
