Infrared Imaging

Services

Infrared imaging is a technology that allows Inside & Out Property Inspectors, Inc. to show you things about a structure that no one can show you using other inspection methods. Infrared imaging produces images of invisible heat energy emitted from objects and systems in the building and allows us to see it in a picture. As we inspect homes in the Jacksonville and St. Augustine areas, we use infrared technology to find hidden problems that you may not even know about.

The images that are captured by the Infrared Imaging Camera can then be included in the inspection report, providing supporting documentation for the homeowner. A picture really is worth a thousand words.

Infrared imaging can help to diagnose the problem rather than merely identify the symptoms. It can sometimes, but not always, identify and document such things as:

  • Electrical faults before they cause a fire
  • Overloaded and undersized circuits
  • Circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement
  • Missing, damaged, and/or wet insulation
  • Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors
  • Water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold
  • Possible pest infestation
  • Hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage to the structure
  • Air conditioner compressor leaks
  • Under-fastening and/or missing framing members
  • Structural defects
  • Broken seals in double-pane windows
  • Energy loss and efficiency
  • Damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems
  • Unknown plumbing leaks
  • Overheated equipment
