infrared camera use

by Roger Hollenbeck on 06/07/15

In April 2014 some inspectors announced the use of infrared camera during home inspections.  You will see my earlier blogs on that subject.  In March of 2015 I surveyed about 90 realtors in Summit County to learn what impact the infrared camera had on determining roof leaks or substantial findings during a home inspection.  This was very objective.  No opinions.  Just facts.   I had about 80 replies and only three of those identified instances when drywall was removed or flooring had been removed to find water damage.  Three in an entire year. Many said it was good for looking at under floor radiant heat and insulation.  So there's knowledge out there.  However my survey revealed that the infrared scans are not really contributing a significant amount of information about the home during the inspection except that a system is working ok.  From the realtors I learned the buyer's seem to like it and it's a good way to finish off the inspection.  So I bought one!!  Infrared camera scans are included with every home inspection by Blue River Home Inspections.
