Thermal Imager Inspection


Watch this consumer's guide to infrared thermography inspections. InterNACHI's John McKenna explains to consumers and real estate agents all the advantages of hiring an Infrared-Certified® inspector and you will see what type of thermal training I have and what you should expect from the thermal inspection.

Please note: The vast majority of Level I and Level II and Level III themographers in the U.S. cannot do an infrared home inspection, because they have no background in that industry. Just throwing out those titles does not make one qualified to teach home inspectors.

"Infrared (IR) inspection is a fast and noninvasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings. An IR camera can instantly identify problem areas that can be immediately documented with full color thermal pictures..."  

Infrared Thermal Imaging
Infrared imaging provides important information relating to otherwise inaccessible areas of a residential building. Infrared detects extremely small but crucial differences in temperature from one area of a house to another. These temperature variations show up on the camera’s view screen as “cold” or “hot” spots, which reveal hidden problems that often cannot be detected in the course of a traditional visual inspection.

These problems may include:

  • Faulty wiring, breakers and fuses

  • Hidden moisture intrusion

  • The moisture sources of mold                                                   

  • Pipe and duct work leaks

  • Roof and ceiling leaks

  • Heat/energy loss

  • Structural concerns

  • Missing insulation

  • Ventilation problems

  • Moisture associated with termite nests

  • Rats, mice and other pests

Why Perform Infrared Home Inspections?
Combined with traditional home inspection techniques, the infrared inspection method reveals substantially more of the house than can be perceived by the naked eye and conventional inspection tools. Many things can't be be seen with only a flashlight.
