Charlotte, NC Infrared Thermal Imaging Services
Water in a home is a serious health risk, leading to mold and mildew problems that can put your family’s health at risk. Air leaks are another type of risk, driving up the home’s energy bills and limiting comfort of the home’s occupants. Sometimes spotting leaks under floors and inside walls is difficult, and by the time they show on the surface serious damage has already occurred.
Thermal imaging helps spot these hidden leaks using the latest technology to see behind the walls and floors. This technology should be part of your home inspection. At Howdy Home Inspections, LLC our goal is to ensure that you have the most accurate information about your home, and that is why we are pleased to offer thermal imaging services as part of our comprehensive inspection services.
Thermal imaging uses a specially designed camera to take thermal images of the home’s walls, windows, ductwork and more. These images show the surface temperature of hard surfaces, indicating areas of hot or cold. Areas that are too hot or too cold compared to the surrounding areas often indicate water, air leaks, poor insulation and faulty ductwork. These problems are typically hidden behind windows, making them impossible to spot without the thermal imaging camera.
Remember, your home inspection is a visual inspection, and the inspector can only report on what he sees. Thermal imaging helps him see just a bit more, beyond what is normally visible to the eye. This makes it is an invaluable tool to help spot problems that could lead to costly repairs and health risks for your family. See the photos below for examples of the types of problems spotted with thermal imaging.
