We use infrared imaging to locate and document thermal anomalies inside and outside your home such as heat loss or water leaks. We are independent contractors that can offer unbiased insight because we do not sell any other products or services like many of our competitors. We work for you to determine the most effective solutions to your problems.
By helping property owners identify potentially dangerous situations like water leaks and costly problems like heat loss and effectively performing an energy audit, we can save you unnecessary expenses.
Water Leaks in Basements
If you have water in your basement or a water leak in your walls, our thermal imaging acts as a water detector and finds water leak problems with no damage to your walls.
What you can expect from the inspection.
If you wish you and the inspector will do the inspection together. You can view the camera from behind him. It takes around an hour to complete.
When he finds something wrong he will explain it and document it with a color and infrared picture in high resolution for the energy audit report. You need not take any notes.
He only takes pictures where there are problems. Then places them in the report you will receive next day or two outlining the pictures with a detailed explanation of what he sees.
You have permanent documentation to email to insurance company or another contractor for quotes. The price does not change once he gets there.
In the conclusions page he prioritizes what to do and how to go about doing it in the order that will get you the most bang for the buck.
You are getting an inspector (NOT A SALESMAN) that has hundreds of inspections under his belt and is working for you.
Reducing Heating Costs
A complete energy audit will provide typical pictures such as air intrusion, missing insulation, sagging insulation, insufficient insulation, wet or water damage on the other side of the wall. Sources for drafts.
Leaks in your heating system duct work so you can reduce heating costs. Animals living in the attic and many times mold behind the walls caused from a water leak.
