Infrared Thermal Imaging

We are proud to announce that Your Inspector Guy now offers Infrared Thermal Imaging Surveys. We have invested in the equipment and training necessary to see beyond the naked eye using thermal imaging technology. This process can detect thermal anomalies that may indicate hidden moisture or leaks, electrical deficiencies that may lead to fire hazards, as well as insulation deficiencies that can lead to energy loss and higher utility bills. If you are interested in having a thermal scan done with your inspection or if you have any questions about the process and what it involves, please contact us. 

This was a new construction 2-story home that (with the help of thermal imaging technology) we discovered had a water leak in the upstairs bathroom. As you can see in the photos, we never would have known about the problem based off visual inspection alone. The thermal anomaly detected in this area led us to probe the area with a moisture meter and confirmed that there was an active moisture problem.

This is an electrical thermal anomaly found using a cutting edge FLIR thermal imaging camera. This home was at severe risk of a fire and had to be evacuated immediately.

This is a snippet from an inspection we performed where we found a thermal anomaly that indicated an active roof leak that was otherwise undetectable by the naked eye as pictured above.

This is a thermal anomaly we detected that led us to the discovery of a clogged dryer vent that put this property at tremendous risk for fire.

This is a snippet from an inspection we performed on a house that was only 5 years old. A scan with an infrared thermal imaging camera found a thermal anomaly that led us to the discovery of multiple active roof leaks that we would’ve never seen otherwise.

This is a thermal anomaly detected on a property that led us to discover that the window(s) were not installed or sealed properly and water was permeating the exterior of the structure. You can see from the top photo that this deficiency was not visible to the naked eye.

This was a thermal anomaly detected after running hot water in the upstairs bathroom of a 2 story property.

This thermal anomaly suggests that area(s) of the vertical knee walls are missing insulation. This hypothesis was confirmed upon visual examination of the attic.

In this instance the infrared camera helped us confirm that the staining observed visually was likely the result of an active roof leak based on the the thermal gradient in these area(s).

Here we have an example of how the thermal imaging camera can help us detect plumbing leaks. Even though the homeowner had wiped the water up before the inspection, the thermal signature remained in the material which allowed us to detect the leak.
