Home Inspector | Three Reasons Why You Should Go For Thermal Image Home Inspection before Buying a House

Are you in the market looking for a new house? Buying a new house is a tricky thing to handle. You have to be sure that the house you are buying does not have any plumbing problems and broken heating system. While you can easily spot these things, there are some other important aspects invisible to the naked eye. This is the reason why you should hire a home inspector.

At Beryl Engineering and Inspection, we offer you the service of ‘Thermal Imaging’, which helps you identify any leaky thermal radiations that might be emitting from hidden places. There are three reasons why you should consider thermal imaging:

  1. Spot Electrical Issues

Faulty Electrical Problems That Cannot Be Spotted

  • Electrical sockets
  • Circuits
  • Motors

When these objects overheat, they tend to catch fire. The home inspector will spot these issues right away and then it is up to you whether you want us to fix them or search for a new house.

  1. Check the House’s Thermal Performance

Thermal imaging can spot:

  • Compressor leaks
  • Heat loss in ceilings, floors, walls, doors, and windows
  • Missing framing members in structure support

If these things are not done well, the heating and cooling system of the house will never work properly. Missing frame structures can also cause heat loss. In order to keep your house’s ventilation system in working order, thermal imaging is necessary.

  1. Roofing Problems

Thermal imaging can pinpoint which areas of your roof need repairing. Punctures or small gaps in seams can cause water insulation. The water absorbs in the wall and during summer it heats up, which in turn heats the wall.

Roofing problems include:

  • Moisture intrusion
  • Leaky roofs
  • Damaged wet insulation

Other than this our thermal imaging also spots any pest infestation. The idea of our service is to provide your family the ease of mind that whether the house you are trying to buy has faults or not. We provide a full report from room to room and object to object, with documents and pictures backing our report. The colorful crisp images give a clear picture where heat loss or leaky damages are.
