Using infrared technology, we can penetrate sheetrock, plaster, wood, drywall and even roofing, to see temperatures in parts of the home that are otherwise totally inaccessible. This lets building owners and buyers feel more secure in the structure. Traditional inspectors are only able to certify areas to which they have access, and also that are visible to the naked eye. This leaves a large portion of the building infrastructure vulnerable to hidden leaks and energy loss.
However, using infrared technology, we can with pinpoint accuracy identify areas of a home or commercial building that are suffering HVAC losses. In addition, once the required repairs are made, infrared technology lets us verify that the heating or cooling losses have stopped. With energy costs skyrocketing, this one benefit can pay for the cost of the inspection all by itself.
