Infrared Thermography

Infrared cameras capture temperature readings that our highly trained inspectors interpret through qualitative analysis to determine if a home or building has concerns that should be further evaluated by a specialist. If a concern does exist, this advanced technology can also help pinpoint the source location so repairs can be made accurately and swiftly.

When used during a home inspection, infrared technology can provide additional information about:

  • Heating and air conditioning systems
  • Pool heating and plumbing leaks
  • Plumbing systems
  • Roof and building envelope integrity
  • Air distribution performance

While infrared is certainly a highly advanced diagnostic tool, it is not “X-ray vision” as some might think.  A home inspector still cannot ‘see through walls’ or predict future conditions. And, an infrared camera is not a ‘point and shoot’ piece of equipment.  It takes a highly skilled home inspector also trained in infrared science to accurately interpret the infrared imagery.
