Without Thermal Imaging, Some things Go Unseen. An infrared camera is an additional tool used as
needed with every inspection to verify suspect items such as water intrusion, proof of energy loss due to
loose or no insulation or lack of weather stripping.
Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material
has a unique thermal signature and when moisture, heat and cold are introduced into the structure the
thermal signature changes. The changes can be subtle or dramatic but with this thermal image scanning
technology the thermal signatures are detectable where they wouldn't be able to be seen with the naked
Thermal image scanning technology is now being used to evaluate residential and commercial structures. As a
non-invasive testing tool it can quickly help discern where there are suspected issues. This can help to limit
the areas where time consuming further evaluation and destructive discovery is needed.
What Thermal Image Scanning is NOT
MOISTURE METER - The infrared thermal imaging camera is NOT a moisture meter. It simply identifies
thermal anomalies. This device greatly aids in identifying areas that need further investigation.
X-RAY VISION - The infrared thermal imaging camera is NOT an X-ray vision scope. It does not provide the
user with an immediate Superman S on their chest with the ability to clearly see inside walls. Instead, it
identifies thermal differences.
SILVER BULLET - The infrared thermal imaging camera is NOT a silver bullet solution, but when it is used in
conjunction with other technologies thermal imaging has helped us to identify issues that are rarely
identified during the limited visual home inspection process.
RISK ELIMINATOR - The infrared thermal imaging camera does NOT completely remove the risks of
PLEASE NOTE: It is deceptive to claim that thermal imaging detects moisture because the best that it can
do is detect thermal differences. Using the infrared camera to help discover moisture issues is helpful
because once the anomalies are identified then moisture meters and other diagnostic tools can be used to
identify the source of the anomaly.
How can this technology be useful??
• Moisture Detection in Walls and Ceilings - Thermal imaging is a great tool that helps to identifying
water damage in walls, floors, and ceilings. By detecting the difference in temperature between a wet area
and the surrounding dry areas thermal imaging can help detect moisture issues that would not be visible
during a limited visual home inspection. It is also great at identifying areas where the insulation contractor
failed to insulate adequately.
• Energy Audits - Thermal imaging is a valuable tool to help homeowners save money, especially now
that energy rates are on the rise. Heat loss and/or cold air influx can be detected and corrective actions can
be taken to help improve the energy efficiency of residential and commercial structures. Once the energy
wasting areas are identified, changes can be made to make a dramatic difference in energy consumption
which means less money out of pocket.
• Flat Roof Inspections - If you have a leak on a new to mid life flat roof and have been told that a
new roof is needed, then call us first. We may be able to save you a substantial amount of money. Thermal
imaging can be used to detect the precise location of the leak and mark the affected area so that repairs
can be made to the leaking area. Obviously, if the roof is older then you should forego the thermal imaging
and invest in the needed new roof.
• Electrical Inspections - Loose or dirty electrical connections and other electrical anomalies can cause
power outages and possible fires. We can inspect the electrical panels and receptacles to detect issues
before there is a costly outage. Thermal imaging can detect hot spots in the electrical system not visible to
the naked eye which may be a precursor to a larger issue. The resulting report can be a great aid for the
repair electrician hired to address the identified issues.
