Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect
very small differences in temperature. Thermal image scanning technology is now being used to evaluate residential and commercial
structures. As a non-invasive testing tool it can quickly help discern where there are suspected issues.
Thermal imaging inspections greatly help in the detection of structural damaging leaks. Please
remember that every day that a leak goes undetected the damage is increased. When detected early the structural repairs and
any needed mold remediation are significantly less costly.
Thermal imaging is a great
tool that helps to identifying water damage in walls, floors, and ceilings. By detecting the difference in temperature between
a wet area and the surrounding dry areas thermal imaging can help detect moisture issues that would not be visible during
a limited visual home inspection. It is also great at identifying areas where the insulation contractor failed to insulate
or dirty electrical connections and other electrical anomalies can cause power outages and possible fires. We can inspect
the electrical panels and receptacles to detect issues before there is a costly outage. Thermal imaging can detect hot spots
in the electrical system not visible to the naked eye which may be a precursor to a larger issue.
Water leaks from the plumbing system often leak undetected
until major damage has occurred.We can scan in, under, and around plumbing fixtures in
the home to determine if there is active leaking going on.
