Thermal imaging also know as Thermography, uses special camera equipment and lenses that detect infrared radiation(heat) that is produced by an object or area, the camera than processes the data and maps out the temperature of each pixel that the camera is capturing. Ask about getting a Thermal Scan When Booking an Appointment!
What Is Thermal Imaging?
Thermal Imaging can detect hidden leaks in walls, ceilings, floors, roofs, etc. that the human eye can not detect. If there is a wet spot or hidden moisture, the camera will detect the areas temperature differences and map out the area and source of the leak.
Did you know that if a circuit breaker, outlet, or light switch increases in heat if it is being overloaded? Troublesome electrical issues can be brought to light before you find out the hard way.
One of the biggest loss of energy in a home is poor insulation, but in many cases portions of insulation can be inaccessible to home inspectors, with thermal imaging we can survey the amount of insulation from viewing the ceilings, walls, and floors.
Making sure all doors and windows seal properly when closed not only protects you from energy loss but also from pests finding ways into your home!
