An Infrared Camera shows differences in temperature, called the Delta T. In the images above, the portion of the ceiling represented in orange has insulation covering it in the attic, keeping it close to room temperature. But the navy blue and black portion shows that the insulation is missing, giving that portion of the drywall a temperature closer to 57 degrees.
Thermal Imaging allows me to see things that can go unnoticed to the naked eye. It can allow me to find areas that lack insulation, have hidden water damage and moisture present, and even wiring that is overheated due to a potential short or overloading.
When buying a home and looking for a home inspector, these are some of the most crucial things to think about. With Professional Home Inspections you get FREE thermal imaging included with every home inspection. I am one of, if not the only inspection company that is certified to provide Thermal Imaging in the area.
