FAQ's of Thermal Imaging

Can Thermal Imaging detect Water Leaks?
Yes Thermal imaging can detect water leaks, water intrusion, and plumbing leaks inside walls before they become visible. Thermal Imaging can help you trace the leak back to the source, finding the area that needs to be repaired, some hard to find leaks surface several feet from the actual problem, thermal imaging can detect the path that the water is traveling, so you know where to make the repair.

The dark blue area in the thermal image on the right shows where the water has entered through the roof traveling down against the ceiling joist of a vaulted knotty pine ceiling, the thermal imaging camera was able to detect this before it became visible, giving the homeowner a chance to make the necessary repairs before the leak had a chance to ruin the costly tongue and grove pine ceiling.
Can Thermal Imaging detect Missing Insulation?
Yes Thermal Imaging can detect missing insulation in walls. The missing insulation appears as a noticeable void in the wall (the blue area with the pink center), being able to fill in the void is like closing a door saving heat loss in winter months and cooling costs in the summer.

Can Thermal Imaging detect drafty Doors and Windows?
Yes Thermal Imaging can detect where cold air is leaking in from improperly sealed Doors and Windows You can see in this thermal image photo the blue color around the window panes and the outer sill area of the window shows where the cold air is leaking into the home. The blue color at the lower corner is where the cold air is traveling and sinking toward the floor. Extra caulking and energy efficient windows would greatly decrease the heat loss.

Can Thermal Imaging detect Mold?
Yes and No Thermal Imaging can detect the possible presence of mold if the area in question is still moist. This photo shows where moisture has invaded a wall, there is always a chance of finding mold when an area has been damp for long periods of time.
