Thermography is a safe and effective way of identifying moisture intrusion, energy loss and hot spots throughout the property.
Infrared cameras capture and process thermal information by analyzing infrared (IR) radiation emitted and produce images that show temperature deviations through colors: lighter colors (reddish color family) signify that something is hotter and darker colors (blues and purples) signify cooler areas.
Large temperature differentials within an image may indicate a problem. The inspector will interpret the image based on their training and make recommendations in the thermography report for next steps in the discovery process. Though thermography can show you potential problems, all findings should be confirmed with a specialist in the area of that particular concern.
