For all those people out there that do not yet understand what a infrared camera can do for them on a home inspection, here is an example. Without touching any of the circuits we are able to tell what the temperature of each breaker is when running hotter than normal.
The top wire at the right corner of the box is warm coming out of the box when the power is being used,yet it is within the allowable heat for the wire being used. When you look at the bottom adapter you can see that is running rather warm and should be watched for over heating.
This is just one of the many items we can find with our infrared camera. We have found missing insulation, air leaks in heating and cooling systems and roof leaks. Clogged pipes are not able to hide from the camera in the basement lines.
Moisture in stucco walls,water in flat roofs are able to be found with the use of our camera. When getting a home inspection it is something a homeowner should seriously consider using to see the things that the naked eye cannot see.
