Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to investigate areas of homes or buildings that can't be revealed using conventional inspection methods.

Our thermal imaging services can identify and document moisture intrusion, energy loss, and even unexpected hot spots.

In terms of energy loss, thermal imaging services can detect:

  • heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors
  • air-conditioner compressor leaks
  • structural defects that can lead to energy loss
  • broken seals in double-paned windows

In terms of detecting moisture intrusion, an IR camera can locate:

  • plumbing leaks
  • hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage
  • missing, damaged and/or wet insulation
  • water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold

IR 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
