THE POWER OF A THERMAL INSPECTION
Buyer Aware uses cutting edge thermal FLIR technology to take a deeper look into your walls and structure. This can help you to identify issues and to save hundreds of dollars annually by detecting moisture (mold), insulation and electrical issues before they pose a bigger risk to your property, fiscal or personal well-being. Our thermal imagers don't have x-ray vision, but they do detect and display very small variances in temperature in structural materials based on their thermal mass.
Thermal imaging for air tightness and energy efficiency is an important quality control measure to use when buying a home. Heat loss can account for up to 50% of total energy consumption in a building. Causes can range from bulk air leakage (chimneys, attics and wall vents) to badly sealed doorways to failing argon gas in windows to missing insulation.
THERMAL IMAGING CAN HELP IDENTIFY
► Unknown plumbing leaks
► Electrical faults before they potentially
► cause a fire
► Overloaded and undersized circuits
► Water and moisture intrusion that
► could lead to mold
► Wet, damaged or missing insulation
► Heat loss and air infiltration into walls,
► ceilings, floors, windows and doors
► Broken seals in double pane windows
► Damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant
► heating systems
