Infrared Certified

Infrared Certified LogoThermal (infrared) imaging is a technology that allows the InterNACHI
INSPECTOR to show you things about your home that no one can show you
using other inspection methods. Thermal imaging, or infrared thermography,
produces images of invisible heat energy emitted from objects and systems
in the home and allows us to measure it. Thermal imaging helps to diagnose
the problem rather than merely identify symptoms and can sometimes, but
not always, identify and document:

• electrical faults before they cause a fire;
• overloaded and undersized circuits;
• circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement;
• missing, damaged, and/or wet insulation;
• heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and
doors, water;
• moisture intrusion that could lead to mold;
• possible pest infestation;
• hidden roof leaks, before they cause serious damage;
• air conditioner compressor leaks;
• under fastening and/or missing framing members;
• structural defects;
• broken seals in double pane windows;
• energy loss and efficiency;
• dangerous flue leaks;
• damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
• unknown plumbing leaks; and
• overheated equipment.
