We use Infrared to discover plumbing leaks, missing insulation and electrical issues.

Infrared Thermography For Home Inspection

Can You See What We See?

At Healymonster Home Inspections, we possess a unique skill - the power to uncover what often remains unseen. Through the use of infrared technology, we provide a different view in our inspections for our clients in Southern and Northern Utah.

We See Things Other Inspectors Can't

Equipped with advanced infrared cameras, we are able to see beyond what the naked eye can perceive, uncovering hidden issues that might escape immediate notice.

These cutting-edge cameras translate heat patterns into a spectrum of colors, highlighting warmer areas in lighter tones and identifying cooler or damp spots in darker shades. By analyzing these images, we can precisely identify sources of energy loss, potential moisture concerns, risky electrical hotspots, and even uncover problems like wood-damaging pests, rodent infestations, and chimney flue leaks that could lead to carbon monoxide exposure.

With our infrared certification, we offer a higher level of depth and accuracy in our inspections, ensuring a more comprehensive assessment of properties.

Infrared allows us to see things the naked eye cannot.

Uncover the Hidden Benefits With Infrared Technology

At Healymonster Home Inspections, we utilize infrared technology to help identify the source of spot water stains on ceilings. While thermal imaging can confirm the presence of water in ceilings, its efficacy is heightened when combined with a high-quality moisture meter. During our investigations, we might venture into the attic above the ceiling to check for signs of roof leaks, HVAC duct condensation, or pipe issues. However, relying solely on the camera may not always provide a complete solution. The camera provides clues that, when integrated with other data, aid in unraveling the root cause of the issue.

It's crucial to recognize that a thermal imaging camera isn't a magical fix; rather, it's an additional tool in our toolkit. To wield it effectively, we have undergone comprehensive training and certification from InterNACHI®, equipping us with an understanding of its mechanics and optimal usage. Our training also delves into building science, covering concepts like hydrodynamics and thermodynamics that illuminate the movement of water and heat. Armed with this knowledge, we grasp the physics underpinning thermal imaging, the technology itself, the fundamentals of building science, and how to leverage thermal imaging for various scenarios.

Thermal (infrared) imaging hinges on detecting temperature variations in objects. It entails deploying devices sensitive to infrared radiation to assess a building's envelope, unveiling thermal patterns that expose energy loss, hidden moisture, electrical anomalies, or structural intricacies.
