Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material has a unique thermal signature and when moisture, heat, cold, or wood destroying insects are introduced into the structure the thermal signature changes. The changes can be subtle or dramatic but with this incredible thermal image scanning technology the thermal signatures are detectable where they wouldn’t be able to be seen with the naked eye.

At Above Grade we use this thermal image scanning technology to evaluate structures in ways that most inspectors would never dream of. As a non-invasive testing tool it can quickly help discern where there are suspected issues. This can help to limit the areas where time consuming further evaluation and destructive discovery is needed. Simply put, our thermal imaging inspections will save you time, money and hassle.

How can our Thermal Imaging help you?

  • Detect Moisture in Walls and Ceilings that is not readily visible to the human eye.
  • Identify Harmful Insect Activity  from generated by the infestation.
  • Perform an energy audit, identifying areas that can have a dramatic effect on energy efficiency.
  • Inspect the electrical panels and receptacles to detect issues before there is a costly outage.
  • We can scan in, under, and around plumbing fixtures in the home to determine if there is active leaking.

Unlike many other inspectors, we won’t leave you with a confusing heat map and technical jargon that is impossible to understand. We’ll walk through your house every step of the way with you- explaining what we see, and how you can take action in a meaningful way.

Thermal Imaging is without a doubt the most impressive and cost effective measure that we can take in a home inspection. It allows us to give the most detailed inspections in the Montgomery, NY area and will ease your mind, or the mind of potential home buyers, knowing what is inside your walls!
