If you could see inside the walls of a home you wanted to buy it would be a great advantage, right? The use of Thermal Imaging is not x-ray vision but rather the next-best thing: infrared vision, via a state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera. Being able to see hot and cold spots helps identify conditions from possible moisture leaks, missing insulation, excessive heat in the electrical system and much more.
I utilize Infrared Thermal Imaging Technology to identify and point out to you these anomalies that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Sundial Home Inspections, LLC offers the use of Thermal Imaging Technology as a courtesy to my customers at no extra charge and is included in every standard home inspection.
Premium building envelope inspections are also available that includes exterior walls (weather permitting), interior walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and the foundation for a reasonable fee when done at the time of your home inspection. This type of inspection can be very time consuming in order to properly identify problem areas.
The use of Thermal Imaging Technology allows me to offer you significant advantages over inspection companies that do not use infrared. The moisture, insulation, and electrical problems I find using this technology can save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Moisture problems can lead to mold growth and a variety of other unwanted issues including wood or structural decay and wood destroying insects. Missing or inadequate insulation results in energy loss and contributes to high energy costs. Electrical problems can also be a serious safety concern if not detected.
What is Thermal Imaging?
Thermal imaging is an effective, non-destructive method for detecting potential problem areas. Thermal imaging cameras look at naturally emitted infrared or “heat” radiation. The infrared camera emits no radiation and is not x-ray vision. Under the right conditions anomalies can be detected that would otherwise remain hidden from a visual inspection alone.
What all can you find with Thermal Imaging?
* Hidden moisture in walls ceilings and under floors
* Leaking roofs
* Broken water pipes
* Water soaked areas that are not visibly seen
* Overheated electrical switches & outlets and more
A Thermal Imaging inspection is an inexpensive way to detect problems that if not addressed soon, could end up costing thousands of dollars in repair or added energy costs. When the safety and piece of mind factors are figured in, a Thermal Imaging Inspection is priceless.
