infrared thermal imaging connecticut ct: Differences in Time - 01/29/12 11:55 PM
If I had a dime for every time I heard it said, “they don’t make things like they used to”, I’d be retired lounging on a warm beach sipping a tall, frosty adult beverage.

One of the services I offer as a Connecticut home inspector is infrared thermography. Scanning the home with an infrared camera I can see what the naked eye can not. It can be very revealing. One lesson I have learned using the IR camera is what types of insulation work and what types do not. To break it down very simply;
