We include thermal imaging with every inspection!
Issues that may not be apparent without the use of a thermal camera include:
- Missing Insulation in the wall cavity, and hidden attic spaces.
- Air leakage
- Overheated electrical components
- Water trapped in a wall or ceiling
- Hidden structural issues
At Informed Home Inspections, we believe these issues are too important to miss, if we can find them. That’s why we will never charge extra for this service.
Your home inspector is a Level 1 Certified Infrared Thermographer. (Per ANSI/ASNT CP-105 and CP-189 of the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing)
Taking a correctly tuned thermal image is not like taking a picture with a standard camera. You need training, and skill to correctly diagnose potential problems. Issues can be missed; or non-issues may be “found”, if your Thermographer is not qualified.
