Also called thermal imaging, infrared scanning allows us to “see” differences in temperature that indicate problems such as plumbing leaks or HVAC problems.
Many people have called us to their homes to help them figure out how the water is coming into their house. Usually by the time they call us, they have had many contractors and spent a lot of money. When we got to their home we often see much attention has been given to the symptoms (the water pouring in, the floor buckling, the paint cracking), but little attention has been paid to the actual source of the water intrusion.
We have developed a technique, using the infrared camera, for locating leaks that occur during or immediately following storms. It allows us to identify where water is coming into a house and inform the home owner what needs to be done to fix the root problem, not just the symptom.
Here are some of the areas where our infrared camera can visually express problems that can not otherwise be seen. Darker areas (black, blue and purple) are cooler. Light areas (white and yellow) are warmer.
