WHAT CAN INFRARED CAMERAS DETECT?

ENERGY LOSS

  • Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors.
  • Damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems.
  • Air-conditioner compressor leaks
  • Under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects.
  • Broken seals in double-paned windows.

MOISTURE

  • Plumbing leaks.
  • Hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage.
  • Missing, damaged and/or wet insulation.
  • Water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold.

HOT SPOTS

  • Circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement.
  • Overloaded and undersized circuits.
  • Overheated electrical equipment and components.
  • Electrical faults before they cause a fire.

MORE

  • Possible pest infestation, as revealed by energy loss through shelter tubes left by boring wood-destroying insects.
  • The heat signatures of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure.
  • Dangerous flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning of the home’s residents.
