Infrared Technology

Buyers Home Inspection Services uses Infrared Thermal Imaging (IR) on all home inspections performed in Houston, Sugar Land, Cypress, Katy, and the surrounding areas. With the IR we have see defects that are not visible or readily visible to the unaided eye. Water penetration, missing insulation, overheating breakers, plumbing leaks are all problems that allow a qualified operator to make educated interpretations of what may be occurring.

 

 

 

 

Thermal Imaging indicated missing insulation was observed at the vertical wall, accessible in the attic, and also at an exterior vertical wall, not accessible from the attic.

 

 

 

 

Thermal Imaging indicated overheating was observed at a breaker wire at the Federal Pacific Panel. The outside temperature was 49 degrees, so the temperature rise was 88 degrees. The immediate repair was called for in the home inspection report.

I employ a variety of tools during inspections to give you objective data. When technology is combined with knowledge, you can be confident of a thorough inspection and detailed report.

Water  Penetration

If infrared or visual indicators warranty further evaluation I employee a non-destructive moisture meter (Tramex –Moisture Encounter Plus). Placed against a wall, trim etc., this unit registers percentage of moisture content from 4% up to 50% or greater, in one-degree increments. Moisture levels between 5 to 14% are normal, higher readings may indicate a leak or excessive moisture. A destructive type of moisture meter (small pins) is also available for use with the current owner’s permission.
