Infrared Inspections with Thermal Imaging
Thermal imaging, also called infrared home inspection, uses a special infrared camera to detect differences in temperature across a surface. These tools see light that is in the heat spectrum. Images on the video or film record the temperature variations of the building’s skin. Thermal imaging is incredibly effective for identifying problems that are hard or impossible to see with the naked eye, like moisture issues, electrical problems, and even areas where energy loss is occurring. Using the proper equipment and interpreting the data requires a properly trained and certified thermal imaging inspector.
Infrared Thermography Scans
Interior scans are more common that exterior scans, because warm air escaping from a building does not always move through the walls in a straight line. Heat loss detected in one area of the outside wall might originate at some other location on the inside of the wall. Interior surveys are generally more accurate because they benefit from reduced air movement. The resulting images help determine whether insulation or any other work is needed. They also serve as a quality control tool, to ensure that insulation has been installed correctly.
Quality Standards & Ethics
AHIT is one of the largest home inspection training institutes in the United States. They are approved and accredited by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), and many other professional organizations. We are ready to put that experience and knowledge to work for you.
As a certified member of InterNACHI, I ensure that you receive the best possible home inspection and professional report. I adhere to a comprehensive Standards of Practice and abide by a strict Code of Ethics, which puts my clients first and protects their rights as consumers.
Detailed Inspection Reports
Buying and owning a property can be a stressful experience, so be sure to choose someone who has your best interest in mind, and can provide you with the right information needed to make the best decision. Each infrared inspection is documented in a detailed inspection report, complete with high-quality images, detailed analysis and recommendations. The inspection report is sent to you online shortly after the inspection is completed. Each report is mobile-friendly and can easily be copied and pasted if you need to share the information with anyone.
