The Purpose of Thermal Imaging Inspections in Smyrna Homes

Are Thermal Imaging Inspections Important?

It is not often easy to see the damage that a home might experience or continually suffer on the surface. Sometimes water damage and other threats are hidden in wall systems and structural cavities that are not readily accessible to house occupants. Have It Inspected Property Solutions understands the importance of a complete picture of a property’s health, making thermal imaging inspections for Smyrna homes an important addition. 

What is Thermography?

Thermal imaging inspections for Smyrna homes utilize a process known as thermography. This describes using infrared imagery captured in snapshots or streaming videos showcasing temperature variances in specific portions of the house. The knowledge obtained through this thermal imaging inspection can help point new home buyers toward possible issues before they finalize the sale of the house and assume responsibility for these concerns. Some of the areas where thermography can help include:

  • Insulation Concerns
  • Electrical Faults
  • Water and Mold Damage

Identifying Inadequate Insulation

Loss of conditioned air’s warmth or coolness can be costly for homeowners. It is easy to track heat escape through the roof during the winter with thermography or the insulating properties of installed elements like windows and doorways. Have It Inspected Property Solutions provides high-quality thermal imaging inspections identifying inadequate insulation.

Finding Electrical Faults 

Electrical faults can appear using thermography as well. In this case, the imaging shows the warmth generated from a poorly wired connection, an under-insulated portion of wiring, or an overloaded or inadequately installed outlet. Unlike water damage, in which its cool temperatures appear in hues of blue on the images, electrical faults are bright reds and oranges, indicating heat that stands out from the general shade of the structural components.

Roof Damage and Water Exposure

The use of thermal imaging inspections can show where moisture pockets exist in areas like the attic. With roof vulnerabilities, you might only sometimes readily see the damage to the structural components unless you watch during a storm. Moist building materials and attic areas indicate water penetration and warrant a closer inspection and evaluation of the roof’s condition and well-being.
