Winter weather

Home Inspector with GCS Home Inspections and Thermal Inspections

Is your home properly insulated and ready for winter?  Will your roof suffer from roof dams and subsequent water damage?  Thermal inspections is the key to non-invasive inspections of critical areas maybe needing insulation.  A complete thermal inspection of your home will cost between $375 and $500; a small price compared to the huge energy bills that can occur from not having a properly insulated home.  I thermal imaged our travel trailer and here's our story why.

We're traveling to Montrose, PA on our big move from CA.  Home Inspection in PA will take a turn when we get there with our thermal imaging technology.  We hit bad weather about 60 miles west of Laramie, WY and pulled into a rest area when we just were tired of struggling with the icy road and crazy drivers (who ened up off the road).  I-80 was closed for the night and into the next morning; so we sat in our travel trailer, furnace running all night supplemented with a small electric heater powered by a small generator in the back of our truck.

I cannot imaging being in a survival situation such as this in my own home.  Northern country can be a survival situation if your own home isn't ready.  Call us for your inspection.

We just left sunny Sacramento!  We're still stuck in WY but now in Cheyenne.  We were just talking about that, "Why are we leaving CA?"  LOLOur LP tank nearly empty again!

This seems like a very useful technology.  Especially with energy bills these days.

I use thermal for many things.  It is incredible.  I travel to do thermal inspections so if you know of anyone, especially commercial investors, needing an inspection--I'm available to inspect.  I used my camera to show me where I needed extra insulation around my hot tub.  Pretty neat.

Hey greg - Your images do a great job of illustrating the usefulness of thermal imaging.  I hope you had a good, safe trip to PA.
