Thermal Images Inspection
Thermal Images Inspection is useful in spotting areas of extra risk of structural rot damage or hidden mold in homes and buildings.
In order to identify potential causes of water leaks, moisture intrusion or mold you need to have a professional conduct a thermal imaging inspection.
Thermal Imaging, also known as Infrared Thermagrophy, are visual displays of the amount of infrared energy emitted, transmitted, and reflected by an object. Thermal imaging involves the use of high tech cameras that create pictures of heat rather than light. When used in a situation where there is suspected water intrusion, these cameras help find areas that are not clearly visible to the naked eye.
DETECTING INSUFFICIENT OR IMPROPERLY INSTALLED INSULATION
Thermal Imaging can detect hot/cold spots in the wall where insulation has slouched over time, was incorrectly installed, or where insulation was never installed to begin with. This information is critical when trying to reduce your heating costs in winter and cooling costs in summer.
In addition, new home buyers should invest in a thermal imaging audit to determine if the insulation has been installed properly. The reason is simple: once the drywall is in place, it is not possible to see whether or not the insulation is properly installed.
