EHS Home Inspections uses the latest technology the home inspection industry has to offer, thermal imaging. Our thermal imaging service comes free with every General Home Inspection which is not offered by many of our competitors.
Thermal imaging is a non-invasive, non-destructive way of evaluating conditions below the surface. Because everything from faulty wiring to the presence of termites to microbial growth to wet insulation affects the surrounding temperature, heat-sensitive photography can reveal these and other issues that just cannot be seen by the naked eye or with conventional or digital photography. In providing thermal imaging reports we can document a hidden fault for corrective action or to prioritize repairs. For an energy audit we can show exactly where cold air is entering the home or heat is being lost, along with energy dollars. We are also able to document the safety of a property by revealing dangerous electrical hot spots or the presence of harmful microbial growths. Thermal photography lets us deliver a more thorough and in-depth report to our clients when we can show them what lies beneath the surface.
