Risks involved when using INFRARED CAMERAS IN HOME INSPECTIONS

by Roger Hollenbeck on 07/07/14

This is what I have read recently on the subject of using INFRARED CAMERAS IN HOME INSPECTIONS:  . All too often the cameras will give indications of problems that are not really problems. A nail head, a screw head or the lack of insulation in a wall will show a difference in heat in a wall on the camera. This indicates that there is a problem in the wall. In fact, no problem exists. But the actual “problem” cannot be determined until the wall covering material such as the drywall is removed and that obviously exceeds the ASHI Standards of Practice.


What is a concern with unwanted liability using IR technology for Home Inspections is evaluating possible electrical malfunctions of the wiring infrastructure within the wall/ceiling cavities. Scanning a Home with IR technology is a waste of time unless each electrical branch circuit within the Home is subjected to or placed under full current/load that would take hours if not an entire day to perform. When a new homeowner moves in who knows how, what and where they will be utilizing in their new Home? Having scanned the Home to report on possible "Electrical Safety Concerns" may place everyone involved within a very expensive law suit by establishing false information by not evaluating the electrical infrastructure under or within its full load rating.
