Thermal Imaging

What Is Thermal Imaging?

Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that may allow the inspector to show clients certain things about their homes or buildings that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods.  

Does Thermal Imaging See Into Walls?

Thermal imaging is NOT a device that can actually see into walls, pipes, etc… The Thermal Camera has the ability to see temperature variations in a given field of view. If these variations are extreme enough, the image may show some of the internal components within a space but it is not like having an actual picture. The imaging camera is just another tool that can be used by an inspector to look for dome hidden issues.  No thermal imager on the planet will tell the user what is wrong. The readings / images must be interpreted properly by the user, as so the inspector can make reasonably correct assumptions about the image.

The effective use of an IR inspection is to interpret the results as accurately and reasonably as possible, so the client is given actionable information, in order to proceed with necessary repairs.

Should I Have My Home Inspected Using Thermal Imaging?

It is unlikely a home inspector will try to thermal image every surface, wall, door, window, etc.. in your home during a typical inspection. To do so would be time consuming and obviously come with additional costs. Instead, most inspectors will use the IR Camera as a tool to look for obvious or suspected problems or to verify an ongoing issue. For something as specialized as a thermal imaging inspection, it’s critical that the information presented meets the client's needs with information they can use and act on.

Thermal Imaging Does Have Limitations

The limitations of thermal imaging are numerous. Most often, it is the intended use of the camera as well as the depth of training and experience the user has.  Depending on the established baseline IR readings and the locations of the images, the results can either alert the client to a critical repair needed – such as an electrical hot spot – or simply be an item that they need to keep in check – such as adding insulation at an exterior wall.  Thermal imaging equipment is expensive enough that not every inspector offers this type of ancillary inspection.  

DSP Inc. Will utilize Thermal Imaging as part of their regular home inspection as a verification tool on an as needed basis without any additional charges.  Should the client request a more thorough Infra Red inspection, DSP can discuss the options.
