Thermal Imaging Building Inspections Hobart
Using thermal imaging when conducting a building inspection is an effective way of identifying potentially serious problems with a property. This advanced technology can detect heat differences on walls, floors and ceilings through thousands of individual temperature measurements, building a picture for a building inspector to analyse and provide a diagnosis.
Benefits of Thermal Imaging
Thermal imaging allows building inspectors to quickly scan large areas and identify areas of moisture and damp which are often a symptom of ventilation problems. A thermal imaging camera is also useful for detecting termites. Although the camera can’t see into walls (like an x-ray), any areas of heat emissions or moisture that are detected are treated as suspicious. While there may be a water leak, the most common cause of a heat spot behind a wall is a termite infestation.
