Home Energy Audits With Thermal Camera

A home inspectors job is to check and analyse different part of a building for potential issues and energy efficiency. This may require a range of tools to inspect difficult position or even physical remove sections to enable a thorough inspection. A thermal camera can change all this by acting like a x-ray for the inspectors eyes to see all the issues which can be represented in the thermal image.

Non-Invasive Inspections

Scan for leaks and other problems behind walls, ceilings and floorboards with a thermal camera without having to physically remove parts.

Avoid Common Inspection Mistakes

Take high quality videos on site and rich thermography images for detailed analyses and comprehensive reporting. Use the radiometric data included to further look at potential issues.

Moisture Detection

Eliminate guesswork when testing for moisture build up by using thermal imaging and see variations in the color which indicates heat differences that can be caused from moisture.

Advanced Features

Utilise the touchscreen to pinpoint the location you want to inspect and take thermal images to store on the generous 32GB SD card memory
