One thing that most people appreciate down here in the south is a fully functional air conditioner on a hot summer day. When the A/C goes out, life goes downhill pretty quickly. Fortunately, this is another issue that a professional home inspection with thermal imaging can help to prevent or diagnose.
There are plenty of potential issues with your HVAC system that thermal imaging can identify. For example, condenser coils are essential to the operation of an air conditioner, but they can become clogged over time. Thermal imaging can show an inspector exactly where a coil is clogged. Another example is damaged electrical wiring – damaged wires usually generate a lot of heat, which shows up clearly on an infrared camera. Finally, if there are cracks in your ductwork, these can be spotted by thermal imaging even if the duct is in a dark attic or roofing space, unseen by human eyes.
