Infrared is a form of light that can be seen only through a special lens.
Just as a normal camera can take picture with normal light, there are special camera lenses that detect infrared radiation.
With an infrared camera it is possbile to detect the heat or cold sources.
For example, it's possible to detect cold air infiltration from the outside or air leakages through the ductwork.
The infrared inspection is integral part of the energy audit and is included in the Home Inspection Infrared package.
An infrared inspection can help to diagnose the problem rather than just identify the symptoms.
With infrared inspection it is possible to identify and document, among other items:
- roof leaks
- structural defects
- plumbing leaks
- moisture intrusion
- energy loss and efficiency
