Infrared Building Inspections in Redmond

Reveal What You Don’t Know

A residential inspection in Redmond includes many things, including knowledge,. For the most advanced and thorough residential inspections in Redmond, request that infrared thermography be included.

This advanced technology is used to locate and pinpoint sources of leaks and water intrusion in buildings without any need for destructive source finding.

Pacific NW Building Inspections in Redmond considers an infrared camera to be one of the most important tools in a Redmond inspector’s tool bag. Infrared thermography in Redmond is a scientific process that measures thermal or infrared energy, infrared thermography can detect insulation, water, heating, air leakage, electrical, and cooling problems.

Without any disruptive – or destructive – exploration, Pacific NW Building Inspections in Redmond can discover water leaks around windows, interior and exterior walls, and water pipes. Wall insulation and the heating and cooling efficiency of windows and doors can also be assessed by using an infrared camera.

>> Pacific NW Building Inspections in Redmond has uncovered leaks around in typically non-suspect areas, such as a living room where no visible damage was apparent. With infrared thermography in Redmond, substantial water damage was discovered. Upon further investigation, a sprinkler head was found to have been directing water into the house’s siding. Several thousand dollars later, the sprinkler head was redirected and the sheathing and framing was repaired. A traditional building inspection would not have been able to identity this issue.

Here are some common areas where infrared thermography in Redmond is most helpful:

Water Transgression

Scanning interior surfaces of your home with an infrared camera can reveal excess moisture due to plumbing leaks, roof leaks, and leaks around windows, to name a few. Wet areas of building materials cool when energy is transferred during the water evaporation process; therefore, a wet (“cooler”) area will stand out from the surrounding dry (“warmer”) surface.

Insulation Deficiencies

Appreciable temperature differences, due to variations in thermal energy (heat) transfer, allow for detection of deficient or missing insulation when scanning ceiling and wall surfaces.

Roofing Leaks

Scanning roof coverings can reveal water intrusion and accumulated moisture below the surface. Due to its thermal properties (high thermal capacity), water typically gives up heat at a much slower rate than the surrounding roof materials. The areas of accumulated moisture can therefore be detected when scanning the roof surface. This type of roof inspection is best done in the evening or early nighttime after thermal energy imparted during the daytime is transferred or released.

Infrared Thermography in Redmond is beneficial in the following areas:

• Detect problems quickly, without interrupting service • Assess priorities for corrective action
• Concrete integrity inspections
• Electrical Systems
• Identify air leakage energy losses
• Cold Storage cooling losses
• Locate missing or damaged insulation
• Locate and identify mold growth areas in building structures
• Boilers
• Heat ventilation air conditioning equipment evaluation • Moisture contamination
• Concrete water heated floor inspections for leaks and temperature distribution
