What is a thermal imaging camera?
A Thermal Imaging Camera is a device that uses infrared radiation to detect tiny differences of temperature, allowing a building inspector to see areas of heat through heat-permeable barriers like smoke and darkness.
Unlike a regular camera that forms images through visible light, an infrared camera forms images through infrared radiation.
Why we use a thermal camera in our independent building and pest inspections
This free service is included in all pre-purchase inspections at no additional cost to our clients because we want to give you the peace of mind that can only come from knowing that every secret hidden within the building will be revealed by our thorough inspection and report.
Thermal imaging supports the integrity of the pre-purchase process in the following ways:
- It helps the building inspector find additional or hidden issues that can’t be easily seen by the human eye, such as the termites’ nest revealed in this image.
- Assists you as a potential property purchaser to make an informed decision.
