Quality home inspections by inspectors who have actually built homes!

Thermal Imaging

A basic inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible systems and components of the home. In such an inspection, we cannot look behind drywall, move heavy furniture or in any way get hands on with the building.

House Consulting Services & Inspections is proud to offer Thermal Imaging Inspections. Thermal imaging is the best way to discover any potential or outstanding issues that cannot be identified with the naked eye. This technology reveals surface temperatures variations in the house which can then be interpreted to identify problems in the building. It's the only way to discover moisture leakage, air leakage, or insulation problems without ripping apart your home. This is an exciting new technology that will deliver the most illuminating home inspection possible, providing peace of mind when you need it the most.

Infrared cameras translate the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors.  Also known as thermal imaging and thermography, IR technology captures the light that exists just outside the visible spectrum.  Thermal images show surface-heat variations, which is why an IR camera is such a diverse tool for commercial and home inspectors that can be used for a variety of applications.  Abnormally hot electrical components and connections can be viewed during an electrical inspection.  Areas of moisture that may lead to leaks and structural damage can be located based on apparent temperature differences.  Heat loss and air leakage in a building envelope, and even areas of insufficient insulation, can be pinpointed quickly and accurately during an energy audit.

House CSI is proud to offer Infrared technology to all of our home inspections and consider this a vital tool for providing you with the best inspection possible. For more information on thermal imaging please contact us.
