At Morgan Inspection Services, we have the capability to use infrared cameras on our inspections. With an infrared camera, also called thermal imaging, we can often see details that the naked eye cannot see. Infrared cameras show differences in surface temperatures, and this can allow the inspector to see overheating wiring, roof leaks, plumbing leaks, and other things that cannot be seen otherwise. Infrared cameras cannot see through walls or anything else for that matter – they do not give us X-ray vision. However, very often a water leak or an electrical issue inside a wall or ceiling will create temperature differences on the outside of the wall or ceiling that our infrared cameras can then detect. Sometimes, these are serious issues that would not be discovered without the use of a thermal camera – at least not until the damage gets worse and more costly to repair, and finally becomes visible inside the home.
In both of the cases shown to the right, none of these issues would have been identified during the course of a normal home inspection without the use of thermal imaging. While thermal imaging is not a guarantee that all such issues will be discovered, it will give your inspector a much greater chance of identifying such issues during your home inspection. All of our inspections include thermal imaging.
Morgan Inspection Services has been conducting thermal imaging inspections in Abilene TX, San Angelo TX, Coleman TX, Brady TX, Comanche TX, San Saba TX and Cross Plains TX since 2002. Please call us today to schedule your thermal imaging inspection.
