Infrared Thermal Imaging

Sure Sight Home Inspection was the first home inspection company in the Triangle to offer infrared thermal imaging. By understanding the thermal patterns created by different building materials, a trained thermographer can use thermal imaging during a home inspection to evaluate insulation, electrical wiring, and water penetration. We offer thermal imaging as an add-on service in any of our full home inspections or pre-listing/maintenance consultations. Thermal imaging is included in the insulation and energy loss inspection.

What is infrared thermal imaging?

All objects whose temperatures are above absolute zero (–459.67 degrees Fahrenheit) emit infrared radiation. Infrared thermal imaging uses a specialized camera to create images from infrared radiation (heat) instead of visible light. Thus, thermal imaging allows us to see differentials in temperature that are invisible to the naked eye.

How is thermal imaging used in a home inspection?

By understanding the thermal patterns created by different building materials, a trained thermographer can use thermal imaging during a home inspection to evaluate:

Insulation

Air infiltration

Electrical issues

Moisture intrusion

Evaluating radiant heating systems
