Should Infrared Thermal Imaging Be Part Of Your Home Inspection?
- Should Infrared Thermal Imaging Be Part Of Your Home Inspection?
The last thing you want to do is make a massive investment into what you think is the home of your dreams only to find out that there are major issues with the foundation or other essential features. New technologies like infrared thermal imaging aren’t necessarily part of the basic home inspection in Aurora, but it comes standard with every Safe Investment Home Inspections service. Here are a few reasons why.
Spot Invisible Leaks
We’ve seen it time and time again, a house that looks perfectly fine on the outside suddenly seems to develop a myriad of problems after the new owners move in. If only home inspectors had the ability to see through walls, right? Well, with thermal imaging they do. Using an infrared camera, we’re able to capture light that exists beyond the visible spectrum. This allows our inspectors to “see through” walls, ceilings, and floors to find costly defects and surface heat variations. If there’s water leaking inside a wall or above your bed in the ceiling, we’ll be able to see it.
Identify Lack Of Insulation
How can you be sure that the contractor who built your home didn’t skimp on insulation? Without thermal imaging, you’ll just have to take his word for it. However, using our infrared cameras, a wall or other feature that isn’t properly insulated will light up like a Christmas tree.
Verify Placement Of Heating And Cooling Systems
The placement of heating and cooling ducts is very important for climate control and energy efficiency. If this work was done hastily or repaired improperly, it can result in big costs for you down the road. With our imaging services, you can see if there are problems before you agree to buy the home.
Don’t buy a home without knowing absolutely everything you can about it. Our infrared thermal imaging come standard with every home inspection in Aurora. Schedule an inspection today!
