INFRARED AT EVERY INSPECTION
As an InterNACHI® Infrared Certified® Thermography Inspector, I use an infrared camera in every inspection, giving me the ability to see things other inspectors can't.
Can You See What I See?
Infrared inspection, available through Entrust Home Inspections, LLC, is a non-destructive testing method employing infrared cameras to detect heat anomalies and issues in various components. It's valuable for identifying electrical and mechanical faults, water ingress, and energy losses in industrial and commercial buildings. With thermal imaging, temperature differences invisible to the human eye are revealed, enabling early detection of potential problems, just like Professional House Inspection and Pre-Purchase Home Inspection services.
Our experienced team offers comprehensive infrared inspection services customized to your requirements, ensuring high-quality results to keep your equipment running safely and efficiently, with guidance from our Tips for Homebuyers Book provided by Entrust Home Inspections, LLC.
I See Things Other Inspectors Can't
As an InterNACHI® Infrared Certified® Thermography Inspector at Entrust Home Inspections, LLC, I hold the Infrared Certified® qualification, utilizing a cutting-edge infrared camera, to uncover hidden issues not easily visible to the naked eye. This state-of-the-art camera translates heat signatures into color-coded images, revealing higher temperatures as lighter colors and lower temperatures and wet areas as darker colors.
Through this process, similar to Professional House Inspection and Pre-Purchase Home Inspection services, I can identify sources of energy loss, detect areas of moisture intrusion, locate dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, including wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney that can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

InterNACHI® Infrared Certified® Thermography Inspector
My clients in Southern California area often reach out to me to investigate water stains on their ceilings and determine the source of the water. While thermography can confirm water presence, it's essential to complement it with a high-quality moisture meter for accurate results tailored for you. In the attic above the ceiling, I search for signs of roof leaks, HVAC duct condensation, or pipe leaks, but relying solely on the camera may not always lead to immediate problem identification, similar to Pre-Purchase Home Inspection and Professional House Inspection services. Instead, the camera provides valuable indications that, combined with other data, help pinpoint the defect's source.
Thermal imaging cameras are valuable tools, but they are not magical solutions. Proper usage requires knowledge and training, which I have obtained through InterNACHI® certification. My training in building science, understanding hydrodynamics and thermodynamics, equips me to use the infrared camera. I am well-versed in the physics of thermal imaging, thermal imaging equipment, building science basics, and thermal imaging applications, backed by practical case histories.
Thermal imaging involves detecting temperature differences in objects. It enables the evaluation of building envelopes to identify thermal patterns indicating issues related to energy loss, latent moisture, electrical problems, or structural details, as well as the unique requirements.
Using an infrared camera professionally goes beyond mere ownership. It demands the expertise to operate it correctly and interpret the images accurately. Just as owning a trowel doesn't make you a mason, owning an infrared camera doesn't make you a thermographer. My knowledge and experience ensure that I use this valuable tool effectively to serve my clients best, ensuring the safety and efficiency of their properties with guidance from our Tips for Homebuyers Book provided by Entrust Home Inspections, LLC.
