What Is Infrared Technology?
When you hire us, you’ll experience our use of infrared technology firsthand during your free infrared home inspection. This is when we’ll use an infrared scanning to identify trouble areas in your home. How is a trouble area classified? These are areas that contribute to energy loss within your home and can be the result of weather-stripping, electrical hotspots, or moisture retention.
During your infrared scan home inspection, technicians will use a thermal imaging camera to identify problem areas that are impossible to see with the naked eye. Our professional home inspection services will identify small but crucial areas of your home that display a difference in temperature. These differences will appear as colored spots in the thermal images. In short, without the use of infrared technology, these areas are nearly impossible to identify.
Call us today for free infrared scanning with any home inspection. We service all homes in the Jacksonville, FL, area.
Types of Infrared Scans
We offer two types of Infrared Scans:
Basic Infrared Scan: Includes a partial scan of the home for items such as electrical hot spots, attic door insulation, HVAC supply vents, exterior door weather-stripping & moisture issues. This type of scan is included with all of our professional home inspection services.
Whole House Scan: Includes a full scan of the home for items such as electrical hot spots, attic door insulation, HVAC supply vents, exterior door weather-stripping, moisture issues, exterior of the structure, interior walls, ceilings, windows, attic insulation and more. This scan is designed to provide a building envelope survey in which the home’s energy efficiencies are closely examined. The whole house scan can be added to any professional home inspection for an additional fee. We also provide this type of scan as a stand-alone service. Please inquire for specific pricing.
Why INFRARED from Inspect-All Services is a benefit to you - The color infrared images provide tangible evidence for such things as:
- air duct leaks
- the presence of moisture (roof or wall leaks)
- lack of insulation
- electrical hot spots that may pose a fire danger
- improperly functioning fixtures and equipment
- energy inefficiencies
- massive pest infestations
PLEASE NOTE: Although infrared thermal imaging is a far better diagnostic tool than the naked eye, it does not guarantee 100% accuracy. Only the removal or destruction of components will achieve complete validation of the findings.
