Certain home inspectors make use of infrared thermography technology as part of the inspection process. An infrared imaging camera sees and measures invisible heat energy in different parts of the home. With the help of these images, homeowners learn about problems that may not be visible to the human eye during a standard inspection. For example, areas of water intrusion provide one type of heat signature, while electrical overheating produces a different one. The inspection is more thorough when this type of technology is used, thus the homeowner has a better idea of the home’s condition.
