Infrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspection


IR of exterior of homeInfrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspections are vitally important for Arizona due to our extreme temperatures, monsoons and poor building practice. Infrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspections technology can assist with these environmental and building concerns and greatly reduce damage and repair costs associated with them.

We can help to pinpoint troublesome issues without the need for invasive or destructive investigations. Infrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspections technology is especially helpful in locating potential problems like electrical hazards, hot or cold spots in the home (identifying areas of missing insulation or poor ventilation) and water leaks (i.e. plumbing, roof and windows).

The use of our Infrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspections technology can prove invaluable in saving time and money typically required to identify and correct these issues. We have the ability to assist you with our state of the art infrared camera technology. We can ‘see’ what other home inspectors can’t.

Infrared inspections are increasingly requested for residential applications. Some of the more common Infrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspections applications include:

  • Water and moisture intrusion inspection scans
  • Electrical system inspection and component scans
  • Thermal insulation inspection scans
  • Structural component inspection scans
  • Building envelope inspection scans
  • Material defect scans
  • Air infiltration / Heat loss scans
  • HVAC component scans
  • Radiant heating system inspection scans and locating
  • And much more…

 What is a Infrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspection?

Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material has a unique thermal signature and when moisture, heat or cold are introduced into the structure the thermal signature changes. The changes can be subtle or dramatic but with thermal image scanning technology the thermal signatures are detectable where they wouldn’t be able to be seen with the naked eye.

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. This can help to limit the areas where time consuming further evaluation and destructive discovery is needed.

What a Infrared Thermal Imaging Home Inspection is NOT?

  • X-RAY VISION – The infrared thermal imaging camera is NOT an X-ray vision scope. It does not provide the user with an immediate Superman S on their chest with the ability to clearly see inside walls. Instead, it identifies thermal differences.
  • SILVER BULLET – The infrared thermal imaging camera is NOT a silver bullet solution, but when it is used in conjunction with other technologies thermal imaging has helped us to identify issues that are rarely identified during the limited visual home inspection process.
  • RISK ELIMINATOR – The infrared thermal imaging camera does NOT completely remove the risks of concealed damage.
  • MOISTURE METER – The infrared thermal imaging camera is NOT a moisture meter. It simply identifies thermal anomalies. This device greatly aids in identifying areas that need further investigation.
  • PLEASE NOTE: It is deceptive to claim that thermal imaging detects moisture because the best that it can do is detect thermal differences. Using the infrared camera to help discover moisture issues is helpful because once the anomalies are identified then moisture meters and other diagnostic tools can be used to identify the source of the anomaly.
