Infrared thermal imaging is an advanced non-destructive technology. With this technology, I can see beyond the spectrum of "natural light" the light that bounces off all objects we can see with the naked eye) and measures the temperature variances of a surface.
I am pioneering this technology in the building inspection industry providing an unprecedented service other home inspectors have yet to offer. Proudly serving Ottawa, Barrhaven, Kanata, Orleans, and the greater Eastern Ontario Region.
Thermal Imaging is highly advanced technology that was originally developed by our military for use in enhancing night vision. This truly amazing camera technology is so astonishing, that it is slowly migrating into the residential and commercial inspection field. Thermal Imaging is quite possibly, the most important technology to be utilized in the home inspection profession today. In the hands of Certified, Trained and Experienced Thermographers, an infrared camera enables me to detect hidden issues behind finished surfaces of any building by evaluating the camera’s images and temperature readings.
