WHAT IT IS?:
Using a state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera, the inspector takes photos of various areas of the home, essentially taking a temperature picture of the structure.
WHY SHOULD I ORDER THIS TEST?:
Temperature variations can be indicative of areas that need to be further investigated. Sometime these temperature variations are as simple as heat escaping around windows. Other times it could be mean there are issues with moisture, missing insulation, or hot spots in the wiring. Thermal Imaging can be useful in identifying issues that are not apparent to the naked eye, or even catch issues such as a leaking toilet before it becomes a problem.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THERMAL IMAGING?:
- Thermal Imaging goes beyond the moisture meter used in the standard inspection to provide in-depth knowledge of the condition of the home’s structure;
- Findings from the thermal imaging session will be included in the written inspection report.
