This is a non-destructive testing technique, which is defined as the non-contact imaging and analysis of thermal energy from the surface of an object. An Infrared Camera detects and converts energy from the infrared spectrum into the visible spectrum. This technology allows the Inspector to "see" things that normally would not be detectable.
Within the scope of a Home Inspection, we can identify and locate such things as:
Cornerstone Home Inspections
- Absent or improperly installed Insulation.
- Wet areas or active leaks.
- Excessive/significant air movement/leaks.
- Issues with Electric or Hydronic radiant floor heat systems.
uses this infrared technology as a diagnostic tool, to help identify significant anomalies
as part of our Home Inspection Service to you. This is not to be confused with, or interpreted as, a Home Energy Audit or Home Energy Assessment Report.
