When an inspection is done in Thunder Bay, we want to make sure about our use of infrared (IR) technology. The thermal/infrared spectrum can’t see everything, but it does see deeper, giving an indication, for example, of leaks and moisture buildup behind walls and under flooring that is invisible to the naked eye. It may pick up areas of poor insulation and heat loss. It can even detect hotspots in the electrical system. The advantage of IR is that it extends what our inspector can see, and identifies problems earlier.
If you’re considering having an inspection done, then having one done that includes an Infrared (IR) inspection should be on your checklist. We provide you an inspector who has training with thermal imaging equipment. The technology is only as good as the inspector that can properly interpret what the IR camera sees. This way, you can be sure that you are receiving an assessment of how your building is working overall. If you live in a high-humidity area, then you’ll want an infrared thermography expert on your team.
