Unlike a conventional home inspection which is visual, a thermal imaging inspection will uncover problems that are hidden to the naked eye. Using infra-red cameras thermal imaging will provide with invaluable information with issues such as water leaks in basements, energy loss, electrical faults, pest and wood destroying infestations.
Conventional home inspectors will usually tell you they have no knowledge in mold issues beyond what is apparent on the surface. If mold growth has started behind paneling or tiles for example it may not be visibly noticeable on the surface and go undetected. A thermal inspection may reveal the problem to you.
Often conventional home inspectors will find surface evidence of water leaks in basements or ceilings, and the good will of sellers is relied upon when asked if the problem has been fixed. Want to know for sure? A thermal inspection will reveal if the issue still exists and where the source of the problem exists, giving you the peace of mind that only certainty can bring.
The efficient use of energy is high on a home buyers mind these days. A thermal inspection will show you where heat loss is occurring around windows, doors, ceilings and attics.
The following are some other areas where a thermal imaging inspection will detect problems not easily seen by a surface inspection:
Hidden electrical faults that are possible fire hazards
Overloaded electrical circuits
Hidden roof leaks
Hidden plumbing leaks
Air Conditioner and Heating leaks
Structural problems and defects
Consider adding a thermal imaging inspection. For most, a home will be the single largest investment of a lifetime. Wouldn't you like to know the true condition of the home you will be living in?
