ogden: Detecting Moisture within the Clouds of Ogden Utah using Infrared - 04/14/13 09:01 PM
Thermal Imaging provides a home buyer some amazing benefits in terms of detecting hidden moisture/mold. While moisture is quickly identified within a home, it can also be quickly identified within the clouds. These were clouds moving over Ogden last week. I could immediately see that the coming clouds were rain clouds and held a large amount of moisture based off the thermal patterns. You'll notice how the clouds are green in some areas and blue/purple in others. The blue/purple clouds are the ones holding a majority of the moisture. Thermal Imaging allows me to see rain clouds even when it's pitch (0 comments)

ogden: How does your Ogden Utah Home Inspector find hidden moisture and plumbing leaks? - 04/07/12 03:39 AM
How does your Ogden Utah Home Inspector find hidden moisture and plumbing leaks? The sad truth is that often the answer to this questions is "when stains are visually noticeable or when moisture damage is present" Our goal at Utah Infrared Inspections is to answer this question in a much different manner.

ogden: Attn: Real Estate Agents in Ogden, Utah - 12/31/11 11:54 AM
I'd like to take the time to ask you to consider adding me to your list of referred home inspectors in 2012. Please allow me to explain how I can benefit you and your clients.
FIRST OF ALL, I AM VERY WELL AWARE OF THE HARD WORK AND TIME YOU HAVE TO PUT INTO EACH AND EVERY POTENTIAL SALE. I UNDERSTAND HOW SOME INSPECTORS CAN LITERALLY "KILL THE DEAL" BY NOT REALIZING HOW TO PROPERLY INFORM THE BUYER OF CONCERNS IN A NON-ALARMING FASHION. SOME HOME INSPECTORS SEEM TO CAPITALIZE ON HOW MUCH STUFF THEY FIND WRONG AS IF IT (0 comments)
ogden: What's hidden behind your walls? - 12/20/11 05:03 AM
While preforming Infrared Home Inspections, home owners are often surprised when I can show them things about their home that they never knew existed even after years of living in the home. I usually get the same response "WOW, that is amazing! I wish we would have known about Infrared Home Inspections before we bought this house" Well the good news is that now they do know about Infrared Home Inspections.
A Utah Infrared Home Inspection offers nearly double the benefits of a traditional flashlight inspection at no additional costs
Thermal Imaging is the only way to see the true condition of a home before the purchase. A conventional flashlight home inspection is essential but thermal imaging is equally if not more essential in determing the true condition of a home. Don't try an pick and choose between these two inspection methods but instead find a home inspector that is certified in both home inspections and thermal imaging.
Many home inspectors offer thermal imaging at no additional charge so using a non-infrared inspector is paying for a service with (0 comments)
ogden: Junk mailers to Ogden, Utah have become my sworn enemy! - 12/09/11 02:24 AM
The amount of junk mail being delivered to my condo has become so excessive and irritating that I have now claimed junk mailers to be a sworn enemy. My mailbox is nearly crammed solid every single day with gobs and gobs of marketing junk. I don't even browse through the enormous amount of junk but should I ever happen to see a companies name listed within it, I promise to not ever use that company again. I am declaring war on junk mailers. I am in search of weapons or ideas to help launch an attack. If anybody has any (1 comments)
The lack of DOWNSPOUT EXTENSIONS. THIS PROBLEM SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.
Most home owners pay little attention to their downspouts. The majority of Ogden, Utah homes lack any form of downspout extensions at all which basically defeats the entire point of having gutters.
Many home owners assume that since they have new gutters or nice gutters that their downspout extensions are sufficient. Such assumptions are wrong. Downspout extensions aren't usually provided by the gutter installation company because anything past the lower 45 degree angle is considered landscaping.
Radiant heating systems are installed in many floors and ceilings of homes throughout Utah. The continuous hot water supply pipes for these type of systems are not visible to the eye and are unable to be monitored (on a continuing basis) in order to ensure that the piping is always functioning properly and continues to remain leak-free. Something as important as (concealed) radiant heat piping should always be monitored on an annual basis. An unknown radiant heating system leak can waste energy and (1 comments)

ogden: Another Way Utah Home Buyers are Benefiting From Utah Infrared Home Inspections - 07/22/11 06:12 PM
Sometimes an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure! Roof leaks and moisture intrusions are among the top 4-5 concerns I see during Utah Home Inspections. Unfortunately most home owners wait until they see visual signs of moisture before trying to locate the cause. In many circumstances, like the one below, waiting for visual signs of moisture can become quite a mess. More often than not, moisture intrusions introduce themselves in very unpleasant ways such as moisture damage and mold. Each year, moisture and water damage cause more home and building destruction than nearly all other forms (1 comments)
