Thermal Imaging 

Included in all full inspections

Thermal Imaging in Bakersfield and all of Kern County

 

Thermal imaging included with all home inspections.

The thermal imaging camera is a powerful tool that few home inspectors utilize.  I include it with all inspections.

Detailed and easy to read reports.

The home inspection reports we create are not simple checklists but actually narrative in nature to give you the details about the defects so you can make an informed decission.

The thermal imaging camera is a tool that can help find additional issues that could not be detected with a visual only inspection.

The thermal imaging shows the temperature difference between the hot water leaving the water heater (on the left side of each image) and the cold water supplying the water heater (on the right side of each image). 

 

A thermal imaging camera IS NOT xray vision. It cannot see through walls.


The imager only detects temperature anomalies.  The inspector will check/verified these findings using other means such as moisture meters for water issues, thermometers for insulation issues, other conditions and tools.

An infrared inspection can identify and document moisture intrusion, energy loss, and even unexpected hot spots.
In terms of energy loss, an IR camera can detect:
heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors;
damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
air-conditioner compressor leaks;
under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects that can lead to energy loss; and
broken seals in double-paned windows.
In terms of detecting moisture intrusion, an IR camera can locate:
plumbing leaks;
hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage;
missing, damaged and/or wet insulation; and
water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope 
that could lead to structural damage and mold.
IR cameras are equally effective at locating hot spots in the home, including:
circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement;
overloaded and undersized circuits;
overheated electrical equipment and components;  and
electrical faults before they cause a fire.
Additionally, based on the color gradients that thermal images provide, an inspector can locate:
possible pest infestation, as revealed by energy loss through shelter tubes left by boring wood-destroying insects;
the presence of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure and detected 
because of their heat signature that the IR camera captures; and
dangerous flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning of the home’s residents.

Some anomalies will still defy explanations with secondary means and are then left to destructive inspection/testing meansthat are not a part of a normal home inspection.

Thermal imaging cameras are 100% safe for occupants. 

They do not emit any harmfull radiation.  They only detect temperature anomilies.
