Infrared imaging can help homeowners solve a myriad of problems and cut energy costs. A1 Infrared makes quality infrared inspections affordable for homeowners and prospective home buyers.
Some residential applications of infrared might include:
Identifying air leaks around doors and windows
Evaluating insulation performance
Finding hidden moisture in walls, ceilings, roofs and certain types of flooring
Checking for electrical problems
Trouble-shooting steam and water heating systems
Pinpointing problems in heated floors and pavement
Locating areas of termite and other pest infestations
Why use infrared for residential applications?
Infrared is non-destructive and non-contact (We don't have to tear things open and make a big mess to do the inspection).
Infrared is quick (A complete home inspection takes less than 8 hrs. for the average home*).
Infrared is cost effective (When you factor in the savings it can give you in time, materials, effort and possible energy savings).
For prospective homebuyers, an infrared inspection can often find issues a regular home inspector could miss, thus strengthening your negotiating position or saving you from a bad investment.
The cost of your infrared inspection may be tax deductible**.

* This is an average only. The time needed for inspections varies due to many factors. Please contact us for an accurate time estimate and price quote.
** But don't take our word for it. Please consult your tax preparer or the IRS.
Without infrared, these problems can go undetected.
