What is a Thermal Imaging Inspection?
Thermal imaging done with infrared cameras is an emerging technology. It is a non-intrusive, non-invasive and non-destructive method of inspection that can scan large areas of a building fast and efficiently and identify the target hot spots accurately. This camera works by detecting the temperature difference and can help in diagnosing problems in areas such as electrical systems, moisture detection in the building, roof and basement leaks, HVAC system malfunctioning, etc. We employ this tool extensively to provide a good building inspection report to our clients.
We believe that the relatively new real-estate market trend of thermal imaging inspections may become a permanent fixture to every real-estate transaction in much the same way as conventional home inspections have been for the past 25 years or so. Why do we think so? Because thermal imaging done with infrared cameras can:
- Detect wet insulation in flat roofs and find electrical problems.
- Find missing/damaged insulation to save energy and reduce cooling and heating costs.
- Serve as a quality assurance tool for new installations or repairs.
- Improve safety, reliability and profits by preventing failures.
- Save on insurance premiums by reducing the amount and severity of claims.

Let us Take a Closer Look at Some of the Areas Our Thermal Imaging Services Can Help You With
Heating, cooling and other utility costs are leaving everyday folks short of cash every month, which is why homeowners and building managers are always looking for ways to help lower expenses. Oftentimes, reductions can be made in the heating or cooling bills and building maintenance costs. Having our professionals do the infrared inspection for your home, apartment, or a business is a very efficient method to quickly lower expenditures. Our inspection report will show you where heat loss is occurring around windows, doors, roofs, and attics. By catching costly repairs before they reach an apex while also identifying areas that can be improved upon before they become in need of repair, our infrared inspection services can effectively reduce your energy costs in both the short-term and the long-term.
Flat Roof Leak
A leaking roof can be quite an inconvenience to most property owners. It can be caused by various weather conditions and can be difficult to diagnose. When left undiagnosed, it can damage the structural integrity of the building and result in expensive repairs down the line. Therefore, searching for the source of this leakage is essential, but anyone who has ever attempted to track down the point of entry and the extent of the leakage can attest to its difficulty. With our reliable infrared leak detection, on the other hand, we can quickly pinpoint hidden dripping water on the ceiling, behind walls, and in the underlying infrastructure that is impossible to see with the naked eye.
Water issues that are left untreated for a long period of time can seriously damage a home’s foundation and cause eroding. Long periods of water penetration can erode a foundation over time, which is why it is essential to have any water penetration issues, even if they are minor, resolved as soon as possible. With our infrared water penetration detection system, we’ll be able to detect any serious water damage in a timely manner so that it can be resolved and will no longer pose a threat. Water is always in the ground, so it is extremely important to be vigilant about potential water penetration issues.
Hidden Electrical Faults
Electric equipment can show signs of wear and depreciate over a period of time, thus leading to malfunctioning and poor connections as well as short circuits in some areas. This can result in catastrophic accidents, defective products, downtime for the operations and unwarranted expenses. Being able to identify these problems with a naked eye can be very challenging, and as follows, the need arises for a thermal imaging inspection. In addition to preventing potential disruptions, our inspections can also result in a longer life span of the system which again comes as a great saving.
Locating termites inside a building is anything but an easy task, but is important as the knowledge of their whereabouts and distribution is essential in deciding on the type of eradication program to be employed. Traditional methods involved tapping the wood with the back end of a screwdriver, or drilling holes in the walls and at times, even pulling the whole wall apart. At Kissee Inspections Services, we provide a sophisticated termite detection system which, apart from being effective and quick, does no damage to the structure.
