A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with it’s sale. Home inspections should be performed by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses this information to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase.
The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.
Thermal imaging is included with all inspections. Infrared technology is used in a variety of fields, from medicine to meteorology. At Reliable Home Inspections, we use infrared scanning, or thermography, to determine whether a house is properly insulated, has dangerous electrical connections and/or possible leaks.A passive, non-contact technology, thermal imaging can provide 2D images in real time with a thermal sensitivity of less than 0.1°C. Thermal imaging is the only non-contact technology on the market capable of delivering detailed real-time LWIR (Long Wave Infra-Red) images.
Example:To the naked eye the first image shows no evidence of moisture around the fan. The purple coloring in the second image indicates moisture, that was verified with a moisture meter.
Example:This thermal image indicates moisture inside the wall.
