What Thermal Imaging Is & Used For:
Infrared technology is changing home inspections dramatically and protecting homeowners – or soon to be homeowners – from costly issues. Infrared technology is used to scan a home & see the various temperatures that occur within the home.
Coast2Bay Inspection Services are certified thermal inspectors. When we scan the home, we know what temperatures are expected to be in an area, and also notice when it is higher or lower than it should be.
Thermal imaging cameras are used to capture temperature images of a home’s surfaces, which is otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Thermal scans are a non-disruptive method of scanning a surface to find potential problems like heat escaping through cracks & crevices, frigid incoming air, or moisture that may be leaking inside from roof leaks or plumbing leaks.
The temperatures captured by the infrared camera are measured and calculated. The results give the homeowners or buyers a clear picture of the home and how that relates to its condition or overall efficiency.
