Infrared technology (thermography) is the use of a thermal imaging camera which offers a complete analysis of the home, quickly identifying problem areas that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Infrared cameras detect extremely small but crucial differences in temperature from one area of a house to another. These temperature variations show up on the camera’s view screen as “cold” or “hot” spots, which reveal hidden problems that often cannot be detected in the course of a traditional visual inspection.
In summary, infrared scanning and imaging provide important information relating to otherwise inaccessible areas of a residential building.
