USING HEAT INFORMATION TO SEE THE TRUE COLOR OF YOUR HOME
Infrared imaging, sometimes called thermography, combines technical knowledge
with specialized equipment as part of a home inspection to help identify problems
"trapped" in the walls, ceilings or floors.
The Benefits of Infrared
Temperature changes across surfaces as "read" by the infrared camera and interpreted
by the inspector along with other clues can indicate:
- Safety concerns
- Developing leaks
- Preventable heating and cooling losses
Temperature differentials point to "hot spots" in wiring, potential fire hazards
that can then be addressed for overall safety.
Areas of missing or reduced insulation may be identified for repair or replacement.
Utilities payments are a big-budget item when it comes to owning a home. Significant
savings are possible when insulation levels are analyzed which doesn't happen with
the naked eye. With an infrared camera, areas of reduced or missing insulation
appear as a different color or shade of gray on the surface of a wall. Repairs
or replacement can reduce the cost of heating or cooling the home.

Moisture, perhaps leaking through a section of roof, can leave a "cooler" spot
on the camera imaging allowing the inspector to alert you to smaller issues before
they become bigger problems.
How Thermal Imaging Works
Thermal imaging uses a specially-designed camera to register changes in temperature,
or heat energy, across surfaces in a home. Trained inspectors use this radiometric
infrared camera to scan the home for evidence of temperature changes. The camera
converts the information into a digital image with heat changes depicted in
various colors or shades of gray. The images are then interpreted by the
inspector to provide the home owner, or buyer with additional information.
