Thermal imaging or infrared, is one of the specialty tools used during a HomeTech inspection. This unique tool has many applications during a home inspection and is included in the inspection price. HomeTech uses this tool on an as needed basis to help in the overall inspection process. This is not a tool that will give all the answers or discover all unforeseen issues. It is however helpful in generating a more accurate overall impression of the home.
“Infrared (thermal imaging report) is an advanced, non-invasive technology. This tool shows homeowners things that can’t be revealed with conventional inspection methods. Ancillary inspection reports are just as important as the reports you generate for standard home inspections. For something as specialized as a thermal imaging inspection, it’s critical that the we provide you information that you can use and act on.” said Nick Gromicko and Kate Tarasenko.
We use this tool on an as needed basis to help in the overall inspection process in Park City, Heber, Salt Lake City and Midway in Utah Home Inspections. This is not a tool that will give all the answers or discover all unforeseen issues. It is however helpful in generating a more accurate overall impression of the home.
Some of the typical applications for thermal imaging are:
- Detecting moisture
- Detecting energy loss in the building envelope
- Determining the functionality of radiant or other heat systems
- Visualizing electrical system issues
An infrared inspection and thermal imaging report can identify and document moisture intrusion,
energy loss, and even unexpected hot spots.
