Residential Infrared Services That You Can Trust
National Infrared Inspections offers advantages to you over typical inspectors who lack our Infrared Thermal Imaging (ITI) Technology. In fact, fewer than ten percent of residential inspectors even use ITI technology, yet what we find using ITI can help you save hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars per year by identifying moisture, insulation and electrical issues before they pose a bigger risk to your financial or physical well-being.
Here are just some of the areas where this technology can be beneficial:
- Energy Efficiency Audits
- Detecting moisture Intrusion
- Detecting unseen Mould
- Identifying missing or misapplied insulation
- Pinpointing significant air infiltration/exfiltration
- Identifying leaky or poorly insulated ducts
- Detecting overheated or overloaded electrical components
- Identifying structural defects
- Investigative Inspections
- Residential Envelope Surveys
What Is Included In A General ITI Scan?
A certified Inspector and Thermographer from National Infrared Inspections will perform a non-invasive infrared thermal imaging scan to measure the surface temperature and the temperature differences or variations of the visible, safely accessible, and readily accessible portions of the building.
- Interior and exterior walls
- Interior ceilings and floors
- Doors and windows
- HVAC equipment and distribution systems
- Main electrical and sub panels
- Representative number of outlets and switches
All the typical thermal anomalies will be documented in your Inspection Report and will be accompanied by both natural (visible light) and infrared photographs where applicable. There are no hidden fess or charges!
NEW CONSTRUCTION QUALITY CONTROL
NEVER buy a new home or make payment on a new addition without doing an infrared inspection first as most contractor mistakes are buried in the walls. The image shows a new addition just built and paid for. You can see the missing insulation along the front wall. The entire wall should be dark blue. except for the studs, which would appear warmer. Yellow at the top and bottom is heat leaking! Whenever a contractor works on the structure of your home always insist for an infrared scan to ensure quality control. The cost of the scan is minimal compared to the overall cost of the project. New windows, which are not installed correctly, will not give the energy savings and comfort benefits described in the marketing materials and promised by the sales person. An Infrared scan is the only way to make sure you get what you paid for.
THERMAL IMAGING DETECTS ENERGY LOSS AND DRAFTS
In the images, note the heat leaking from the window bottom. On the inside, blower door testing confirms air leakage from multiple places on the interior of this window, which are easily seen in the high-resolution images shown.
