If you are accustomed to using a traditional home inspector, one who merely walks around and throughout the home and inspects things on a purely visual level, then you are missing out on a method which delivers an unusually large treasure trove of information. This method is used by inspectors who provide infrared inspection services. Here are just a few of the many benefits one can expect to glean from using these amazing services.
1. Infrared technology is able to instantly provide a detailed and complete inspection breakdown of your home. It is especially great at providing temperature readings. These readings are well past what the human eye can render and perceive. Thes reasons this is so important is that if the potential home buyer or the current homeowner is looking for HVAC leaks, moisture entry points, or issues with insulation, infrared is by far the best way to spot a problem in advance.
2. Some issues that people can find out beforehand without ever doing anything more than an infrared scan also include hidden plumbing clogs, issues with radiant heat if the home uses such a heating method, deficiencies in the HVAC units which are notoriously hard to diagnose via the naked eye, and even general water problems.
3. When an inspector comes into the home and is armed with infrared inspection services, the homeowner can feel instantly reassured that the inspector in question is quite serious about the job being performed. This cannot be denied because infrared inspection systems are not a cheap investment. One must be dedicated to investing in the initial money to purchase one.
As can be seen, there is a slew of benefits and zero drawbacks to hiring an inspector who uses infrared as his means of inspection. Doesn’t your home deserve it?
