One of the biggest advantages of thermal imaging is its ability to reveal potential problems not visible with just a visual inspection. This includes issues such as drafts and moisture intrusion that can easily be missed otherwise. Additionally, areas with higher or lower temperatures in your heating and cooling system could indicate larger underlying issues. Making the decision to use thermal imaging during your home inspection can help catch hidden issues early on before they become larger problems later down the line. Our home inspector at PTJ Home Defenders is a Certified Master Level II Thermographer.
