Infrared Scan

Thermal Imaging Inspections

What Is a Infrared Scan?

Thermal Imaging

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.

Infrared imaging is a limited scan and most home inspectors are not Certified Thermographers, but the inspectors at Inside & Out Property Inspectors, Inc. are all certified in this technology.


Issues that thermal imaging can

Identify & Reveal

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
