The thermal imaging cameras for home inspection uses the infrared camera which is used to measure and record the surface temperature of the materials. It is not an x-ray vision and won’t see through the walls. It helps to capture the images, which use a color scale to measure the temperature difference on the surfaces and detects the wavelength of the light emitted by the objects.

Thermal imaging can help detect the following issues during a home inspection:

  • Lack of Insulation
  • Heat or Energy Loss
  • Moisture
  • Electrical Issues
  • Plumbing Issues
  • Termites
