What is an Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection?
Infrared thermal imaging is a non-invasive technology that involves the use of infrared cameras to show key temperature changes around the house. This technology identifies problem areas that are not visible to the naked eyes.
This technology is extremely useful for the following purposes:
- Water damage detection in walls, ceilings, others – Detecting the temperature differences between a wet and the surrounding dry area helps locate moisture issues that would not be visible during a typical home inspection.
- Plumbing inspections– Water leaks in the plumbing systems are often left unnoticed until large-scale issues occur. It helps scan in and around the plumbing fixtures to determine any active leaks.
- Stucco and EIFS inspections – Any rot behind the stucco is often visible with thermal imaging through heat anomalies.
- Wood destroying insect activity – Termite activity produces a great amount of heat energy. The heat generated by active infestations can be easily detected using this technology.
- Energy audits – Heat loss and/or cold air influx can be detected using thermal imaging. When these energy-wasting areas are determined, corrective measures can be taken to improve energy efficiency. Lesser energy consumption means more savings.
- Flat Roof inspections – Any leaks to the roof can be identified with thermal imaging. Call us for a Jamesville, NY Thermal Imaging Inspection first before you decide to get a new roof.

- Electrical Inspections – Abnormal heating or excessive current flow can cause minor to major electrical hazards. Loose or dirty electrical connections can cause power outages or worst, fires. With thermal imaging, we can detect the hot spots and areas of anomalies so proper measures can be made. Thermal imaging is the best tool available to locate problematic areas before a component fails, cause damage to the component, and create safety hazards.
