Our trained and certified professional
thermographers use state-of the art thermal infrared cameras
to perform extensive energy surveys of your home or commercial
property. We can improve the efficiency of your home or commercial
building by detecting moisture problems and air leakage inside
and outside of buildings and homes that can rob energy and
increases cost. With Infrared thermal imaging we can find
these defects and save you money and costly repair bills.
In addition, a thermal inspection is a valuable service to
inspect properties before you even buy. We provide comprehensive
color reports with thermal and visible images side-by-side
for accurate identification and location of defective areas
The energy surveys has the following advantages:

is an image taken in the basement of a home looking
up at the ceiling where the floor joists meet the basement
wall. The dark blue spots in the center of the image
is cold air infiltrating the otherwise warm basement
due to missing insulation between the floor joists
and the basement wall.
This is an area that is commonly over-looked,

cameras. Areas that have missing insulation or areas
that have heat build-up due to constricted passage
ways are visible with this technology.
In areas that have heat loss in the
piping, homeowners can choose to insulate the pipes
in areas where the loss is occurring instead of insulating
the entire piping system.
Bay Window: Owner of this home had insulation pumped
into the walls through holes drilled into the brick from
the outside. Owner wanted to verify each was properly
insulated. Notice the heated spot under the left portion
of the bay window. This is heat coming from the inside
of the house. Owner will follow up with insulation contractor.
