Infrared Inspection

WHAT IS THERMOGRAPHY?

Thermography is the use of specialized cameras to detect and produce images of radiation, also called thermograms, in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (9-14 μm). The human eye cannot see this radiation.  Instead, we perceive it as heat.  All objects above –459.67°F emit infrared, thus thermography allows us to see variations in temperature.

Our Certified Professional Inspector® will scan various elements in your home to look for anomalies.  Where an anomaly is found, a problem like electrical over-heating, moisture intrusion, missing insulation, or air leakage could exist.

CERTIFIED INFRARED INSPECTION

Scan

Our Certified Professional Inspector® will begin the inspection by scanning objects in your home for thermal anomalies.

Investigate

Our Certified Professional Inspector® will scrutinize every aspect of the thermal images and thermal anomalies.

Recommend

Following the assessment, our Certified Professional Inspector® will prepare a report and advise on how to resolve any found anomalies.

ADVANTAGES OF THERMOGRAPHY

CONDITIONS DETECTABLE BY INFRARED INSPECTIONS

Electrical - Defective equipment or appliances & faulty or loose wiring, breakers, and fuses

Moisture intrusion / Structural concerns - Foundation cracks & roof or ceiling leaks & hidden moisture intrusion & mold or termite nests

Energy efficiency - Air infiltration & missing insulation & ventilation problems & heat or energy loss & pipe or duct leaks

BENEFITS OF INFRARED INSPECTIONS

Locate potential problems - Prevent catastrophic failures & detect electrical issues & lower incidence of fires & detect moisture intrusion

Find cost savings - Detect energy waste & extend equipment/appliance life & lower repair costs & no service interruption during inspection & prevent accidents & lower insurance premiums due to reduced losses
