Thermal imaging is a great tool that is often underutilized. We use in the Home Performance industry as a necessary tool. However it is not required by BPI (Building Performance Institute) for an assessment. It can “peer” into wall space to see air leaks or insulation issues in most weather conditions. Electrically it can be used to fine short, an overload situation or a loose screw, potentially saving a fire or shut down with simple maintenance and repair. Commercially it can be used to locate leaks on some flat roof situations saving the owners 10’s of thousands of dollars.
So don’t cast of the power of thermal imaging, it can point the way to an efficient home, save you from a fire or breakdown or expensive repairs.
