Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging

A thermal imaging camera can see in the infrared spectrum and detect warm and cold heat signatures. As the camera passes over each surface, it produces a thermal image translated into various colors depending on the temperature signature it detects. During a thermal imaging home inspection, the thermal images produced by the camera will be used to identify potential problem areas that may require further investigation. Thermal imaging is a great tool that can help you find issues that you might not be able to see.

A spot radiometer is a device that measures the thermal energy emitted by an object in a specific area. This thermal energy is then translated into a temperature reading. The spot radiometer can then measure the thermal energy emitted by these areas and confirm the presence of an issue.

Why is Thermal Imaging Important?

A home inspection is intended to provide a detailed overview of the quality and condition of a residential or commercial property. Thermal imaging is crucial because it can help you detect issues that you might not be able to see with the naked eye. Thermal imaging can also be used to monitor the drying progress after water damage has occurred. A thermal imaging camera can be used to detect moisture in a variety of ways. For example, thermal images can identify areas of high moisture content, structural defects, heat loss, roof leaks, leaking pipes, water leaks, air conditioner leaks, and damp walls or ceilings.

Choose a Thermal inspection for your peace of mind and safety.
