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. In a typical inspection we will run a scan of the interior of the home and certain systems in an attempt to identify any potential issues. 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. You may or may not see thermal images in the inspection report depending on our findings, but the tool is always used as needed.
Infrared is an advanced, non-invasive technology. This tool shows the inspector things that can’t be revealed with conventional inspection methods.
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.
Some of the typical applications for thermal imaging are:
- Detecting moisture
- Determining the functionality of radiant or other heat systems
- Visualizing electrical system issues
Infrared inspection and thermal imaging can identify and document moisture intrusion, and other potential concerns. The use of this technology is included in a standard home inspection or mold inspection. NOTE: We do not provide a separate thermal report, any issue noted with this technology will be included in the inspection report, you may not see thermal images in the inspection report unless they are useful in identifying an issue. We do not provide energy evaluation as part of the inspection. If you would like a thermal imaging infrared inspection for specific reasons other than a home inspection or mold inspection, please call us to discuss options.
