INFRARED / THERMAL SCAN

I provide a free Infrared/thermal scan on every home inspection. Infrared technology can allow us to see otherwise hidden defects such as missing insulation, moisture inside walls, air duct issues etc. I have residential thermography training through InterNachi and United Infrared (see certificates below). 

Check out the pictures below for some of the interesting things we are able to find.

***some defects require proper temperature differentials (outside vs inside) to be found and will not be easily discovered on a mild day

EXAMPLES OF MISSING INSULATION / AIR LEAKAGE

missing insulation - raised ceiling
missing insulation - ceiling joist bay
missing insulation - under attic service catwalk
air leak from attic due to no firestop around chimney vent/blocking
missing insulation
insulation not replaced after drywall patch
missing insulation in exterior wall
air leak from damaged weatherstripping

EXAMPLES OF MOISTURE & HVAC PROBLEMS

water leak inside wall
moisture intrusion due to missing refrigerant line insulation
moisture wicking into wall from leaking fridge water line
shower pan leak
shower pan leak
leaking pipe in wall
A/C register drywalled over
A/C toe-register never installed
