Nearly everything gets hot before it breaks. Thermal imaging inspection leverages this principle and uses infrared detection technology to diagnose the condition of your home. Hidden problem areas are quickly identified without destructive probing activities.
Your Inspection Channel Home Inspector will use infrared thermal imaging to detect hidden water problems, missing or failing insulation, areas of heat loss, termite nests, electrical problems and other potential issues. Upon completion of your thermal imaging inspection, we will provide you with the information you need to make an educated decisions about the condition of your home and its systems. This will then facilitate your buying/selling transaction.
Use your infrared home inspection for:
- Pre-purchase inspections
- Warranty inspections
- Renovation inspections: pre and post
- Construction phase inspections
- Locating missing, damaged and moist insulation
- Moisture, electrical, mechanical, and roof inspections
Benefits of Thermal Imaging
There are many benefits of using thermal imaging for a wide range of building, electrical and mechanical applications. The key benefits include:
- It reduces down time: There is no need to shutdown operational systems during a thermal audit allowing production to continue as normal.
- It saves money: shows you exactly where the problems are, so you can focus on detecting energy waste, moisture and electrical issues.
- It is fast and accurate: Thermal surveys can quickly scan and measure the temperature distribution of entire surfaces of machinery and electrical equipment under normal load conditions quickly and accurately with no need for lengthy preparation or pre-inspection work.
- It is a totally non-invasive process: Thermal Imaging is non destructive and involves no physical contact and consequently there is no potential for damage to the systems or equipment undergoing thermal surveys
- It reduces the potential for serious health and safety issues to occur: Early detection of problems will reduce the potential for injury to staff and risk of fire
