Wonder what’s behind the walls? Get a thermal imaging inspection

One of my clients just had a home inspection completed where he asked the home inspector to do a thermal imaging inspection in addition to his normal inspection.

Matthew Jenks, of First Step Home Inspectors, is the only inspector in the valley that I know of, who is using this special camera, to find issues with a property that are not necessarily visible to the human eye, like heat loss from lack of insulation and water damage from leaks.

Here are a few photos that he shared with me from some of his inspections. Scale on right in each photo is temperature (F°).

  1. Pretty cool, but I wonder how all houses would rate if inspected in this fashion. Maybe the house(s) in these photos is one of the good ones. 🙂
