Randy King - Mankato Home Inspector shares information about infrared thermal imaging (ITI) technology used during home buyers inspections.
Just this past fall after extensive training we finally launched infrared thermal imaging (ITI) technology into our already large array of home inspection tools and services. During our standard home buyer's inspection we give each home ITI scans, and you would be suprised what a well-trained infrared thermographer coupled with an experienced home inspector can find. Below you can see some of the images also called thermograms retrieved from a recent inspection.
What you are seeing in the pictures above and below are walls from the top floor of a home's livingspace. The dark (purple) areas of the infrared images (right images) are showing cold areas confirmed to be missing insulation.
While very small amounts of missing or inadequate insulation is normal in most homes, having large amounts of missing insulation especially at the highest areas in the livingspace of the home can mean energy loss, and ultimately higher energy bills. With energy bills certainly not going down, this infrared scan potentially saved the homebuyers many dollars over the coming years.
