Why is an Infrared Scan Important?

When combined with traditional home inspection techniques, an Infrared scan reveals significantly more of the house than can be seen during a typical visual inspection using conventional inspection tools. Many hidden problems simply can't be seen by the naked eye.

For example: Everything looks fine in this bathroom, but ...

Inadequate insulation and a plumbing leak are seen in this thermal image

... the Infrared Camera clearly shows (1) energy loss due to insufficient insulation
 and (2) moisture in the drywall due to an active leak.

Thermal Imaging Can Find A Variety of Problems

Moisture Problems

The dark spot in the thermal image is water from a roof leak.

Moisture in a ceiling due to a roof leak.

  -  Roof Leaks
  -  Plumbing Leaks
  -  Chimney & Flashing Leaks
  -  Leaks around Windows & Doors
  -  Condensation
  -  Poor Ventilation

Electrical Hot Spots

How Thermal Imaging Works

Everything around us constantly emits infrared energy which is outside the visible spectrum.  The wavelength of this infrared energy changes depending on the temperature of the object.  An Infrared camera works by measuring these wavelengths and then displaying the temperature of each object on the screen using a color code.

The camera can then be used to find “cold” or “hot” spots which may indicate potential problems.  Using an Infrared camera can reveal many hidden problems that often cannot be detected in the course of a traditional visual inspection.

Although Infrared thermal imaging is a far better diagnostic tool than the naked eye, it does not guarantee 100% accuracy, unless removal or destruction of components can be achieved to validate findings. Whenever possible, other tools are used to verify thermal image.  Even so, we do not claim to have x-ray vision. Conditions may change and cause the apparent temperatures revealed on thermal images to be different at any given time.

Infrared camera work by measuring infrared light which has a longer wavelength than visible light.

The Infrared spectrum is outside the Visible spectrum of light.
