Our Certified Master Inspector® is certified in the use of infrared thermal imaging technology and uses it during every inspection that he performs. Thermal imaging is the use of a special camera with a high-resolution infrared lens, which detects the infrared energy emitted from an object, allowing even the slightest differences in temperature to be detected. This is very useful in inspecting many areas of the home, such as insulation, electrical, HVAC systems and radiant floor heating. It’s also very useful for detecting leaks, as an area of a surface that is even slightly damp is cooler than the surrounding surface.
We use thermal imaging on EVERY inspection!
