Gold Key offers thermal imaging inspections using Infrared (IR) technology to help home buyers gain a better understanding of the home they’re about to purchase. Our inspectors have undergone specialized training and are Infrared Certified. They use specialized equipment that measures heat energy to identify potential problems as well as to verify performance of certain components that might not otherwise become apparent in a standard home inspection.
How is Infrared Technology used in a Home Inspection?
Infrared is a safe and non-invasive technology that uses temperature differentials to help identify potential problems that will be further investigated by the home inspector using either visual observation or technical equipment, such as a moisture meter. Some costly problems, such as moisture, air infiltration and pest infestation to name a few, may not be evident to the naked eye. However, these particular issues may be detectable with an IR camera and will alert an inspector that further verification of the potential problem is necessary.
