Thermographic Imaging allows us to see issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye, including electrical systems, plumbing, and insulation. Thermal cameras or infrared cameras are devices that can be used to capture characteristics and properties of objects relative to temperature.
At Carter Inspection Services, we use a thermal imaging camera on every home inspection. These are some of the things we are looking for:
- Missing or wet insulation
- Hidden roof leaks
- Plumbing leaks
- Heat loss and air infiltration from windows and doors
- Overheated electrical equipment and components
- Moisture intrusion at the foundation and exterior of the home
