Using the best technology for the best inspection
Water evaporates as it cools. Thermal cameras can assist in identifying moisture and assessing moisture issues
Thermal cameras help to identify anomolies or variation in surface temperature. Missing insulation, air leakage and other issues can become highlighted when you can see temperature.
Thermal imaging can help identify hot spots in your electrical system or other areas not otherwise visible. Helping us confirm loose connections and other problems.
Thermal Cameras See Surface Temperature
To show the difference between the naked eye and a thermal camera check out these videos. The darker the color the cooler the surface and the lighter the warmer. Keep in mind these videos are from situations where minimal other visual signs were present and the scope of these problems was only visible with a thermal camera and moisture meter.
WHY THERMAL AND ANOTHER LEVEL?
Thermal helps us identify issues and while we dont do an entire thermal inspection during our home inspections, we still utilize it at times to help us identify more at no charge. Jameson is a certified residential thermographer. Thermal can be misleading and significantly troublesome if not completed by a train professional. If not in the right hands it can be more bad than good.
Toilet With 110 Degree Water
The toilet is clearly fed with the hot water line of the home and is a big energy waster…Home built over a year prior to this
Frosted Window With Argon Loss
This window was frosted and seeing the seal failure was not possible with the naked eye
Leaking Toilet Into Floor
When this dark spot in the basement floor was checked with a moisture meter it was completely damp. Leakage into a concrete slab is important and hard to identify
