Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging

As part of your standard home inspection, we use an infrared camera to potentially find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An Infrared (IR) camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, we can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, and pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system.

 

Thermal imaging can aid in detecting an active water leak such as this one a closet ceiling. This was viewed by the Infrared (IR) camera which could not have be seen by the human eye.
