Thermal Imaging

What's Beyond the Walls?

A Thermal Imaging Inspection, also known as an Infrared Inspection, is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes infrared technology to provide an analysis of a property’s thermal performance. The infrared camera can detect temperature differences in a building’s structure that might indicate potential issues.

Detailed Breakdown of Thermal Imaging


Use of
Infrared Camera

An infrared (IR) camera is the main tool used in this type of inspection. The camera detects infrared radiation (heat) and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image on a video monitor.


Identify Temperature Differences

The inspector uses the thermal image to identify areas of the property where there are significant temperature differences. These temperature differences can indicate potential issues such as energy loss from lack of insulation, air leaks around windows and doors, or moisture intrusion.


Identify Potential Problems

Warm areas might indicate electrical overloads, while cooler spots could suggest water leaks or insufficient insulation. By identifying these thermal anomalies, a thermal imaging inspection can provide valuable information about the property's condition that might not be visible to the naked eye.
