Infrared & Thermal Imaging
Uncovering Problems Not Visible to the Human Eyes
Eagle Eye Home Inspector specializes in thermal imaging, which enhances human vision and is one of the most powerful technologies developed to detect differences in heat. Thermal imaging helps the inspector to uncover problems that aren’t always visible to the human eye and is included in every home inspection at no additional cost.
Our advanced thermal imaging cameras uses a process that converts heat that is emitted by objects into colors to show variations in surface temperatures to a fraction of a degree ranging from bright red to dark blue. Higher temperatures will translate as red, while darker colors are triggered by lower temperatures in wet areas. Thermal Imaging will uncover potential problems such as:
- Potential Heat Loss Around Walls and Floorings
- Potential Heat Loss at Windows and Doors
- Energy Loss
- Electrical Hot Spots
- Flue Leaks in Chimney
- Locate Wood Destroying Insects
- Detect Moisture Intrusion
Electrical Hot Spot Detection
Thermal imaging can help the inspector discover any potential dangerous electrical hot spots in your home. As seen at the image, one of the breakers in the circuit breaker has very high heat due a double tapped breaker.
Heat Loss at Door
As shown in this thermal image, there’s a significant heat loss around the door. This could be a sign of air infiltration around the door. Heat loss can also occur around the windows as well.
Thermal imaging can locate pests that are in your home. Since they are usually behind your walls, you wouldn’t normally be able to see them like this mouse in the image.
Heat Loss Around the Flooring/Walls
In the image below there might be an indication of poor insulation in your home located in the dark areas around the wall/flooring.
