All home inspection services include Full Thermal Imaging Scans performed with FLIR cameras.
If your building inspector is not using Full Thermal Imaging Scans during your inspection, you may be missing a lot of important details. FLIR cameras use infrared imaging to capture pictures of wavelengths beyond those which can be seen by the unaided human eye, which allows us to view and document variations in temperature. Infrared cameras are invaluable tools for home inspectors, which is why we use them for all home inspection services. They are of particular importance when it comes to multi-unit buildings, like condos, because of the issues that can arise when multiple floors are involved and there is plumbing above and adjacent to a dwelling. Thermal imaging scans allow us to detect heat loss at key points, including doors, windows, ceilings, walls, and floors. We are able to detect hard to discover leaks in pipes, walls, roofs, insulation, and heating and cooling systems, which can lead to early detection and even prevention of mold, insect and rodent infestations, and other defects requiring expensive repairs.
