Thermal Imaging in Home Inspections

Our Inspectors use Infrared Cameras on every home inspection at no additional charge. These tools are one of the greatest advances in technology that make our RHI Inspectors even more effective in making sure you’re buying a great home and helping you buy your home with your “eyes wide open”.

Missing, damaged, or inadequate insulation, building envelope air leaks, moisture intrusion, plumbing leakage are costly to homeowners. An infrared camera can help us quickly see and find the sources of energy inefficiencies, destructive water damage, so we can help you, our clients, make informed decisions on needed repairs, that can help you save energy dollars and stay more comfortable.

We check for irregularities on ceilings, walls & floors while we’re inspecting and will include Thermal Images in your home inspection report as needed. Radiant slab heat can be assessed so we can tell if those systems are functioning without leakage.

Here are some examples of the sort of thermal images we can collect:

More thorough inspection than others. Friendly, prompt, good with clients, explaining issues as well as long term maintenance. Appreciate information provided to clients for later as they need references once the stress of purchasing or selling is over. Rating: 10 - Extremely Satisfied
