Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging (or Infrared) Cameras are the latest and greatest tools in the home inspection industry and Ellis County Home Inspections is leading the way!  In the hands of a trained professional, this technology can find issues that are invisible to the naked eye!  Thermal Imaging is great at detecting unseen moisture or water leaks and much more.  Under the right conditions, missing insulation sticks out like a GIANT soar Thumb in the Infrared spectrum!  (just take a look at the photo below!)  Plumbing leaks, roof leaks, overheating electrical issues and more can all be extended beyond just the visual inspection while remaining non-destructive.

Thermal Imaging is a new concept to most consumers.  If you want to learn the full scoop on this technology, then you've got to watch this video, "A Consumer's Guide to Infrared Thermography."  My friend (and thermal imaging instructor) John McKenna, has put together a really informative video on the subject.  Just click the image below. It's about 28 minutes long, so get some popcorn ready!Thermal Imaging Video
