Infrared Imaging, also known as Thermal Imaging, uses infrared technology to detect differences in temperature. An Infrared inspection combines a traditional (visual) home inspection, with a thermal imaging scan. During this process we investigate “suspicious” areas, paying special attention to the warning signs detected in the infrared scan, to identify and confirm the problem or problems that were indicated in the scan. These items include missing insulation, water leaks, roof leaks, electrical issues, and rodent infestation.
Keep in mind that Infrared technology is not a “magic bullet”, and the changes in temperature can be subtle or dramatic. But when used in conjunction with a traditional home inspection, this technology can help to identify issues and concerns during the inspection process that would not be able to be seen with the naked eye.
