Thermal Imaging Home Inspection in Long Island, NY
Thermographers can help isolate the source of thermal anomalies quickly and easily. Detect missing insulation, energy loss around doors, windows and framing, and hidden moisture issues from leaking pipes or roofing without costly destructive testing. Also, thermal imaging can identify worn bearings, overheated electrical switchgear components and connections, and faulty steam traps.
We perform qualitative and quantitative thermal imaging to assist in determining problems before they create unanticipated machine outages and costly production downtime. One early warning sign of a malfunction in electrical and mechanical systems is excess heat. While invisible to the human eye, modern-day infrared cameras are used to view the area in question and reveal temperature variations.
Moisture Detection in Walls and Ceilings – Thermal imaging is an excellent tool that can be used to identify moisture in walls, floors, and ceilings. By looking at the temperature differentials in a thermal image, the ability to find a moisture issue is significantly increased during a limited visual home inspection. Thermal image scanning can also help to quantify areas of moisture damage caused by moisture intrusions in Stucco and EIFS wall systems.
Moisture & Mold – Whenever you have the presence of moisture for 72 hours or more, the risk for the presence of mold skyrockets. With the help of an infrared camera and humidity meters, we can quickly identify the presence or absence of moisture, thus helping to identify areas where mold may be present. Molds can be inspected separately by a mold inspection service.
Plumbing Inspections – A slow water leak can cause significant damage if not detected on time. With a thermal scan in and around plumbing fixtures in the home, the source of water leaks can often time be determined, which can aid a professional plumber in the event repairs are needed. Once thermal anomalies are detected, we can then attempt to confirm the presence of moisture with a moisture meter. A thermal scan can significantly increase the odds of finding a plumbing issue that may not be detected by the naked eye.
Wood Destroying Insect Activity – In some instances wood destroying insect activity can be detected using this technology due to the heat is given off by active infestations of insects, i.e., termites. By discovering the presence of invasive wood destroying insects the appropriate professional can be contacted to do a more thorough investigation and treatment as necessary.
Energy Audits – Currently we do not perform energy audits, but thermal imaging has been a great tool to help us determine areas that are missing insulation along with areas that may not be as air-tight as they should be like around duct work. By finding sectors such as these, we can help our clients save money by mitigating heating and cooling losses and increasing the overall energy efficiency of the structure.
Flat Roof Inspections – Do you have an old flat roof that has a leak and someone told you that you need a new roof? If so, call us first because we may be able to help pinpoint the leak with our thermal camera and mark off the area for repair, which could save you a considerable amount of money.
Electrical Inspections – Whenever electrical current travels through a circuit there is some heat that is generated, but sometimes there is an abnormal amount of heat that can be generated if there is too much resistance or current flow. With the use of thermal imaging, we can increase our chances of finding electrical components that may be overheating such as breakers in electrical panels, outlets, switches, lights, etc. Overheating or hot spots can be an indication that a component may be going out or that there is a potential fire hazard. Thermal imaging helps us to discover risks like these and can help us see things that we could not see with the naked eye.
