You'll be surprised at the number of things you can learn about your home with the use of a thermal imaging camera. Your home inspector is well trained on a state of the art handheld thermal imaging camera to help find potential risks.
What Is Thermal imaging?
Thermal imaging cameras are devices that translate thermal energy (heat) into visible light in order to analyze a particular object or scene. The image produced is known as a thermogram and is analyzed through a process called thermography. Thermal imaging cameras are sophisticated devices that process the captured image and display it on a screen. These images can be used for immediate diagnosis or processed through specialized software for further evaluation, accuracy and report output. Thermal imaging cameras take measuring temperature to the next level; instead of getting a number for the temperature you get a picture showing the temperature differences of a surface.
What we can Find!
A thermal imaging camera can help a inspector discover missing insulation in a wall or attic. When your home has missing or damaged insulation it can cost you significantly more money to heat and cool the home.
Along with a moisture meter a Thermal Imaging camera can help find the source of the moisture intrusion that causes water damage. This can save you a lot of money if the problem is caught early.
Over heating Electrical Circuit
A Thermal Imaging camera can help an inspector identify overheating electrical circuits. Which can not be seen with the naked eye.
verify heat source
With the help of our thermal imaging camera we can ensure your baseboard heater or furnace is producing the correct amount of heat!
