An infra-red home inspection, also known as thermal imaging, involves using an advanced infra-red camera that can spot even the mildest differences in thermal levels across a single surface. Infrared home inspections enable us to identify issues that cannot be seen otherwise with the naked eye in a standard home inspection. It uses state-of-the-art equipment to determine the thermal levels. Only certified and highly trained inspectors can use this equipment and interpret the obtained readings.
Thermal imaging allows us to find problems when they are still minor and less costly to fix. By the time the problem becomes evident enough to be seen by the naked eye, it may have grown too worse for minor and inexpensive repairs. This type of inspection is incredibly useful in uncovering the following hidden problems:
Energy loss can happen because of faulty construction, poor design and insulation, and malfunctioning systems. By identifying places with inadequate insulation, thermal imaging cameras can assist in reducing rising energy expenses. Cameras that use thermal imaging can also help in measuring temperature. They take measurements of thermal energy, which are transformed into two-dimensional images that let the viewer see temperature variations inside the target area. They can quickly identify temperature changes that point to problem regions. The fact that thermal imaging cameras are non-destructive and non-invasive implies that they don’t require that the area of concern be excavated or turned off, which is one of their key advantages.
Thermal imaging allows us to check for energy loss through the attic, doors, ceiling, flooring, roof, and other non-insulated spots.
An infrared home inspection also enables us to detect potential moisture levels in your home. Excessive moisture can lead to mold growth, furniture damage, structural damage, and several health conditions. Moisture levels can be high for several reasons, including a roof leakage, plumbing leakage, faulty air conditioning, and more. Since our device for thermal imaging isn’t capable of directly detecting high moisture levels, we use an advanced moisture meter for that purpose.
Thermal imaging helps us determine any hot and cold spots in the home due to a malfunctioning HVAC system, lack of insulation, electrical faults, or excessively hot water pipes. Issues in the electrical wiring are of significant concern, as they can lead to overloaded HVAC components and increase the risk of fire hazard.

There is a difference between regular and thermal imaging inspection.
Traditional home inspection reports typically provide limited information. For instance, it can identify any apparent structural defects or potential HVAC problems within the house. However, it is limited to what your unaided eye can see. But this is not the case with a thermal imaging inspection. Thermal imaging cameras can detect a hidden water leak or a failed plumbing repair from the past. Technology that examines warm and cool heat signatures is used in the procedure. It is carried out with the use of an infrared radiation-detecting special camera.
We at Clear Sight Inspections provide thermal imaging inspection service.
We at Clear Sight Inspections offer thermal imaging inspection service. Thermal imaging inspection is the process of using a thermal imaging camera along with other thermal imaging equipment for inspection. Thermographic inspections reveal a wide range of information that you can use to determine important facts about your residence or place of business. With this, you will be able to check for structural defects, problems, and issues that are usually not visible to the naked eye. Moreover, you will also get a thorough picture of the condition of your home, and thereby you can prepare yourself for the repairing or restructuring costs.
Reach out to us upon putting an offer on a new home. We will connect with you at our earliest to schedule a date for the home inspection and discuss your requirements. If we are unable to schedule an inspection on your preferred date, we’ll work out to pick another available date at your convenience.
