What is thermal Imaging?


Thermal imaging is the use of infrared technology to view slight temperature differences between an object and its surroundings. While the infrared camera can't see through objects and walls like an X-ray, the minor temperature differences are often enough to give insight into what is happening in areas that are not visible to the naked eye or traditional camera. 

As part of the traditional home inspection, the infrared camera is very effective in finding problems with hidden moisture, lack of proper insulation or weatherstripping, electrical issues and overheating, and HVAC issues.
