Infra-Red Thermography

All Inspections include a free Infrared Thermal Imaging Scan!! *

Thermography enables us to see and measure heat. All materials on earth emit heat energy in the infrared wavelength portion of the spectrum. Unfortunately, the human eye cannot see in this portion of the spectrum. Our Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera allows us to see and record this wavelength, revealing temperature anomalies as small as 1/10 of 1 degree C. Points of possible concern show up clearly as hot or cold in relation to their surroundings. This thermal image can then be interpreted to provide a noninvasive and nondestructive method of identifying building defects and deficiencies, including building insulation, electrical, mechanical, plumbing and waterproofing systems, and even rodent or pest discovery!!. In addition to finding problems, infrared inspections are useful to confirm that previously determined issues have been properly corrected or re-mediated.

These are sample images of the same areas (visual images at left and thermal images at right). Nothing is apparent when looking at the visual image, but issues are very apparent in the thermal image. Lighter colors represent progressively warmer temperatures, while darker colors represent progressively cooler temperatures.

If your inspector is not using thermal imaging, you’re not getting the whole picture!
