Thermal Imaging & Home Energy Reports
A Thermographer and a Home Inspector with a Thermal Camera are NOT the same thing! It is up to you the client to choose which one you trust to correctly perform a thermal imaging building inspection for you in Nashville, Tennessee!
I am a Certified Level I Thermographer through the Infrared Training Center (Certification #83891), which is important when it comes to properly performing and then interpreting the images I will obtain for your inspection. You can rest assured that I will do a correct inspection for you. I utilize the FLIR T420bx thermal camera, one of the best thermal cameras available for building diagnostics.
Thermal imaging cameras detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces. Thermal imaging cameras ARE NOT X-Ray vision and cannot see through building materials!
Anything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. A thermal camera is able to detect this heat and create a thermal image based on that information. A certified professional thermographer then examines the thermal image and assesses what's potentially going on behind the surface that’s causing the temperature variations in the thermal image.
