A thermal imaging camera is a resourceful tool that utilizes infrared light to diagnose a variety of issues. Because infrared light cannot be seen with the naked eye a thermal imaging camera helps us to detect deficiencies in a building which lie beneath the surface.These deficiencies come in many forms: water and air infiltration, lack of insulation, plumbing and electrical issues, defects in the building’s envelope, all of which could easily be missed without a thermal imaging diagnostic! Paired with a moisture meter, this service offers an unrivaled quality inspection that every prospective home buyer deserves.
Obtaining a diagnostic with a thermal imaging camera can prevent the need to open the walls or ceiling to detect a problem. Because a thermal imager is such a versatile tool we have integrated it’s use into all of our inspections as a complementary service!
Below are a few issues that we have detected with a thermal imaging camera. Without it, these problems would have been inherited by the new owners.
