Infrared technology uses the science of thermal imaging wherein thermographic lenses can track radiation and lets you know the immediate problem. Infrared inspection service utilizes infrared thermal cameras that can effectively detect the cause of the problem in your house’s HVAC, electric wiring, basement, and plumbing system.
Your eyes cannot easily see the elements that could be damaging your house’s internal systems. You need microscopic lenses or hi-end cameras that can see scratches and moisture through tubes and metallic materials. Infrared technology can detect what your naked eyes cannot and be able to tell a solution to the problem.
heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors;
damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
air-conditioner compressor leaks;
under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects that can lead to energy loss;
broken seals in double-paned windows.
hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage;
missing, damaged and/or wet insulation;
water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold.
circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement;
overloaded and undersized circuits;
overheated electrical equipment and components; and
electrical faults before they cause a fire.
possible pest infestation, as revealed by energy loss through shelter tubes left by boring wood-destroying insects;
the presence of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure and detected because of their heat signature that the IR camera captures;
dangerous flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning of the home’s residents.
