Lee Shaw

Awesome Tool

“Thermal imaging (also know as thermography and infared or IR technology)  is an emerging technology that may allow an InterNACHI Inspector ..Like me, Lee Shaw… to show you things about your home that no one can show you using other inspection methods?”

Lightweight Cutting Edge Device

Thermal imaging produces images of invisible heat energy emitted from objects and systems in the home and allows us at … Home Is Right … to measure it. An infrared (IR) camera is a versatile, lightweight cutting-edge device that enhances our understanding of a building’s different systems and components. The ability to read heat as color and then display that information in a way that’s easily understood makes the IR camera an increasingly important tool for inspectors to have in their equipment arsenal.

Layer of Additional Safety

Thermal imaging may help diagnose the problem rather than merely identify symptoms and can sometimes, but not always, identify and document the following:

  • Electrical faults before they cause a fire;
  • Overload and undersized circuits;
  • Circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement;
  • Missing, damaged and /or wet insulation;
  • Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors;
  • Water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold; possible pest infestation; hidden roof leaks(before they cause serious damage);
  • Air-conditioner compressor leaks;
  • Under-fastening and/or missing framing members;
  • Structural defects;
  • Broken seals in double-pane windows;
  • Energy loss and loss of system efficiency;
  • Dangerous flue leaks;
  • Damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
  • Unknown plumbing leaks;
  • and Overheated equipment.

The color images we produce are included …in your easy to read inspection report… to provide supporting documentation.  This information can then be used to allow you to make more informed decisions when necessary.  

Having thermal imaging is almost like walking into a dark room, not being able to see much, then turning on a light.  It’s such an important tool that in my professional opinion every Home Inspection should include Infrared imaging. So much so that … Home Is Right … includes Thermal Imaging scans for Free on all our home inspections.  You just read a list of reasons why.
