Thermal Image Inspections
Infrared (Thermal Imaging) (IR) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show homeowners things about their homes that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods.
Ancillary inspection reports can identify and document moisture intrusion, energy loss, and even unexpected hot spots.
|An Infrared Camera can detect|
|Energy Loss||Moisture Intrusion||And Locate||Hot Spots|
|heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors||plumbing leaks||possible pest infestation by wood- boring destroying insects||circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement|
|damaged and/or malfunctioning heating systems||hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage||dangerous flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning of the home’s residents||overloaded and undersized circuits|
|air-conditioner compressor leaks||missing, damaged and/or wet insulation||electrical faults before they cause a fire|
|under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects that can lead to energy loss||water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mould||the presence of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure and detected because of their heat signature that the IR camera captures||overheated electrical equipment and components|
|broken seals in double-paned windows|
The inspection report includes normal reporting, as well as interpretation of the results, which can help clients determine what to do next in order to address any problems. To make the report user-friendly, a standard digital image is provided side by side with Infrared images. This ensures an accurate point of reference for the Infrared data, which is essential for mapping out improvements and repairs.
