Infrared Home Inspections

Home Inspectors (such as myself) are now finding ways to pay the bills in this slow R/E market and are offering a valuable preventive and predictive maintenance option called Infrared Inspections, also known as Thermal Imaging. This truly amazing camera technology is so astonishing, that more and more home inspectors are deciding to migrate this amazing tool into the residential and commercial inspection field. Not only does this IR camera get me more work, thermal Imaging is quite possibly, the most important technology to be utilized in the Residential and Commercial inspection profession today.

In the hands of Certified, Trained and Experienced Thermographer's (such as myself), an infrared camera allows me to detect hidden issues behind finished surfaces of any building by evaluating the camera's images and temperature readings and then interpreting these readings directly to my clients. This outstanding technology gives me the ability to actually observe what's going on behind those finished walls and ceilings of any building. Everything from faulty wiring (whether it is in the wall or exposed), to the presence of concealed Termites, concealed wet insulation and even Mold build-up will affect the surrounding temperature of a surface. I would recommend anyone (who is seeking additional work) to get into Infrared inspections ASAP. There are a host of applications for infrared cameras and there are many issues (throughout the average building) that can be easily detected through infrared imaging. Once the public hears of your additional services, your phone will ring more often.
