Too many people request an inspection only upon buying or selling a home, then never again. That’s like visiting a doctor once in your life and assuming you’ll never get sick afterwards.
In fact, a home can acquire all kinds of problems over the years, including hidden water damage, electrical wiring problems, termites and more. Some problems may become serious, even hazardous, if not detected early. That’s why more homeowners are protecting their investment over the long term with preventive home inspections.

In addition to advanced home inspections, Commercial-Home Infrared Inspections provides a variety of specialized services to home owners, buyers and sellers, including:
Energy Loss Inspections
Water Leakage Detection
With this technology, it is possible to avoid energy losses and to predict and prevent mistakes considerably.
The Power of Technology
The 3-Step Commercial-Home Infrared Inspections Process combines a traditional (visual) inspection with advanced infrared and acoustic scans of the property using a state-of-the-art infrared camera, specially designed acoustic sensors and pattern recognition software. With this technology and process, a Commercial-Home Infrared inspector can detect problems that may otherwise go undetected, including plumbing leaks, water damage, energy loss, electrical problems, structural concerns and termite infestations. Here’s how it works:
Step 1 —Infrared Scan. An infrared scan detects differences in temperature throughout the house. These temperature variations show up as “hot or cold spots” and provide important clues about the house’s condition, problems and potential problems. The infrared scan screens for:
Internal structural concerns
Potential electrical problems
Termites and other insects
Pipe and duct work leaks
Roof and ceiling leaks
Rats, mice and other pests
Step 2 —Traditional (Visual) Inspection. Once suspicious areas (“hot or cold spots”) are identified by the infrared scan, Commercial-Home Infrared Inspections performs an in-depth visual inspection of the home, paying special attention to the problem areas in order to identify the nature and cause of the problems. The visual inspection covers:

Infrared Inspections can help reduce/eliminate:
Mold & Mildew - High humidity and water damage can lead to mold and/or mildew resulting in wood rot, various structure damage and health problems
Dust - Poorly sealed duct work can result in high levels of dust.
Cold or Hot Rooms - differences in temperature from room to room can signify inadequate insulation, air leaks, and/or poor duct insulation.
Medical costs by reducing indoor allergens, dust, mold, mildew, and pests. This in turn can increase productivity.
Energy efficient buildings reduce our reliance on foreign natural gas and other fuels, while saving money and promoting local economic growth.
So save some money, promote the local economy, and go green with infrared building inspections!
Infrared Electrical Inspections can prevent major losses according to The InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA).
