Infrared

I provide a free Infrared/thermal scan on every home inspection. This allows us to see some otherwise hidden defects such as missing insulation and moisture inside walls etc. I have received 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.o

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
A/C register never cut out on a new construction job
