Important Information About Utah Window Inspections and Testing - 12/31/10 06:02 AM
Important Information About Utah Window Inspections and Testing Did you know that 20% of the brand-new windows leaving the factory everyday are defective? That's an unbvelieveably high number of defects to be placed on any new product!
Utah homes definitely have some of the most scenic and amazing views of any homes in the US. Here in Utah, we like our views and we like our big windows and who can blame us! We realize large windows means less energy efficiency but many home owners are losing FAR more energy than they realize.
Infrared Technology used during a home or building inspection offers the most advanced, in-depth, and informative inspection available. Mississippi home buyers are quickly catching on to the amazing benefits provided by Infrared Home and Building Inspections. Once a home buyer uses an Infrared Home Inspector there is little to no chance of them ever returning to the usual "peek an poke" flashlight inspection of the past. Meridian Mississippi now has a Certified Infrared Inspector providing Infrared Home and Building Inspections throughout the State of Mississippi.
I decided to take a few Thermal Images around the town of Ogden, Utah. Infrared Cameras have proved to be an essential tool for a home or building inspections but they also take some really cool pictures.
Because many things simply cannot be seen without Infrared Technology! The Infrared Images below were all taken during the last 2 weeks during Ogden Utah Home Inspections. As you will notice, NONE of these moisture intrusions would have been detected without Infrared Technology.
Infrared Home Inspections are the same cost of a flashlight inspection yet offer nearly double the benefits.

Last night while watching the news, I heard one of the headline stories discussing the need for Radon Testing in Utah. Radon Testing should be taken seriously in Utah considering Radon is the 2nd leading cause of Lung Cancer. Many homes throughout Utah have proven to show high levels of Radon Gas. Utah is located in a high Radon Level region compared to the rest of the United States. Any Utah home that has not yet been tested for Radon is strongly advised by the EPA to have a (0 comments)
Non-grounded Electrical Receptacles are detected during most Utah Home Inspections - 12/13/10 04:48 AM
Non-grounded Electrical Receptacles are detected during most Utah Home Inspections The top three things I find during Utah Home Inspections are non-grounded recepptacles, gutter and gutter downspount defecencies, and a negative slope of the landscaping causing water to rest against the foundation. I often have home buyers ask me how serious or dangerous a non-grounded receptacle is. I usually respond by telling them their parents and grandparents used non-grounded receptacles for the majority of their life and they probably never new the difference. Yes, I recommend eventually updating the receptacles but don't see it as being an urgent matter by any (1 comments)
These are examples of defective commercial block walls detected by an Infrared Camera
Block walls should be filled with grout for structural integrity or foam build for insulation. Commercial block walls have certain requirements for the cores to be concrete filled to a specific number of cores per linear foot The lack of both concrete cores or foam insulation can often immediately be identified through infrared scans. Block walls (CMU) are a commonly used construction method - yet once a block wall is covered, it can be almost impossible to (0 comments)

NOTICE THE 110.6 DEGREES IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT Back in August I stopped by our local hot springs located in the Ogden Canyon to take a few infrared images. I was surprised to see that many of the hot springs were reading 130+ degree temperatures with the main pool reading 110 degrees. http://activerain.com/blogsview/1801493/ogden-utah-hot-springs-infrared-inspection I returned to the hot springs today(December 5th) on my way home from SnowBasin Ski Resort to do an Infrared Re-inspection. What I found was quite interesting. Several of the smaller hot springs didn't seem to be flowing as they were (0 comments)
