Infrared Thermography Home Inspection

infrared thermography

This knowledge could be priceless when your considering the purchase of your new home.

Infrared thermography (IRT), thermal imaging, and thermal video are examples of infrared imaging science. Thermal imaging cameras detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (roughly 9,000–14,000 nanometers or 9–14 µm) and produce images of that radiation, called thermograms. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects above absolute zero thermography makes it possible to see your prospective home purchase with or without visible illumination.

The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature; therefore, thermography allows you to see variations in temperature. When viewed through a thermal imaging camera, warm objects stand out well against cooler backgrounds, Heat escaping your home from poorly insulated areas of the structure becomes easy to spot. Cool dark areas may be an indication of moisture build-up where moisture shouldn't be. As a result, thermography is particularly useful in Real Estate Home Inspections for detecting heat loss or moisture build-up and leakage from your home.
