Thermal imaging pinpoints problems that regular property inspections often miss.
When you’re buying a house, it’s very common to arrange an inspection in order to be sure of what you’re signing up for. These inspections are essential, because they provide you with a solid idea of how much you might need to pay for repairs in the near future.
Unfortunately, standard run-of-the-mill inspections usually don’t involve thermal imaging. Yet this process is one of the most effective ways to detect hidden structural problems within a house.
The certified thermographers at EP Electrical use thermal imaging to:
- Give you peace of mind when you’re buying a new home
- Help you diagnose possible issues with your current property
How does thermal imaging work?
Our specialised thermographic cameras emit an infrared light, which shows us which areas of each room are hotter than other areas. Based on this imaging, we can locate the spots where heat is escaping from the house. By diagnosing any problems and advising you on how to fix them, we help you improve your home’s heating efficiency – often dramatically. Since undiagnosed heat loss can account for up to 50% of your power bill, thermal imaging can save you a lot of money in the long run.
What can thermal imaging detect?
Thermal imaging isn’t limited to a single narrow purpose. Because infrared light allows us to see heat – and because heat is produced, or lost, for a variety of reasons – it’s a great way to test for a range of common property issues:
- Electrical hazards in machinery, appliances, switches, transformers, fuses, etc
- Moisture build-up under carpets, in ceilings, and behind walls
- Damp insulation
- Leaky roofs
- Pest infestations
- Problematic gaps in walls, window frames, doors, and other places where heat is commonly lost
