Buying a home is a big financial decision. You need to make sure that it is worth all your money and time in the long run, and one way to do that is by booking a professional inspector to conduct an infrared house inspection. Doing this should be part of the home buying process, as it can help verify the true, overall condition of the property inside and out. That said, it lets you see defects and potential problems, which may be hidden or incapable of being viewed by the naked eye. Through infrared or thermal imaging, hot and cold spots can be indicated throughout the inspection to reveal issues, such as moisture, leaks, mould, termite infestation, energy or heat loss, structural concerns, and cracks in the foundation.

A thermal imaging house inspection can also reveal electrical problems, missing insulation, rodent infestation, and ventilation problems. When you know all these issues, you can inform the seller and ask them to consider doing the necessary repairs. If they refuse, you may back out of the deal. Infrared house inspection may also be practical if you are selling a home as an extra assurance to the buyer, or when you are having your property renovated. Infrared technology provides a simple and non-invasive way to find insulation issues, electrical and energy problems, and moisture concerns within the property. Those problems are usually hard to detect through a visual inspection, which makes them easy to bypass and left untreated, so they result in untimely and costly repairs down the line.

An infrared house inspection will show the professional inspector exactly where problems are in the building without needing to boreholes or open up walls or ceilings. Infrared thermography is typically a technical process, so it requires specialised training, which professional inspectors have. When hiring a thermal imaging house inspection services, make sure that the inspectors certified to use infrared technology. That way, you can be confident in their diagnosis, expertise, and findings.
