Infrared Inspections

Our highly trained Infrared Thermographers can help you detect unseen, underlying problems, preventing costly damage to your home.

Infrared Thermography Inspections & Thermal Scanning Service Information

Infrared thermography is used to inspect building envelopes, flat roofs, underground piping, plumbing systems and electrical systems. Infrared (IR) inspections can detect unseen problems such as loose or deteriorated electrical connections, missing or damaged insulation, air leakage and water intrusion. All of these conditions can cause costly damage to a home.

Benefits of a Thermal Inspection

A Thermal Inspection allows us to identify possible areas of concern in a non-destructive way. Annual IR inspections can extend roof life, prevent excessive moisture damage, reduce equipment damage, detect loose or deteriorated electrical connections, save energy and lower building operating costs.

Our Experience

Infrared imaging cameras have become more sophisticated and are easier to use than ever before. Because of this, many people mistakenly believe that IR scans can be performed with little or no training. IR Thermography is a science and an art. Proper training is critical to success.

Alan Bowman is a level III Thermographer that has been trained in infrared theory, heat transfer principles, weather influences and building science. We not only have the proper equipment for this type of work but also have the understanding of how it should be used.
