DASET Home Inspections Thermal Imaging


Results with Modern Technology

DASET Home Inspections includes infrared technology with every inspection, as part of our complete inspection service. Infrared technology is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show clients things about their investment that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods.

Infrared can identify and document:



In terms of detecting moisture intrusion, an inspector using a thermographic camera can locate:

  • plumbing leaks;

  • hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage;

  • missing, damaged and/or wet insulation; and

  • water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold.



In terms of energy loss, an inspector using a thermographic camera can detect:

  • heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors

  • damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems

  • air-conditioner compressor leaks

  • under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects that can lead to energy loss

  • broken seals in double-paned windows 



Thermographic cameras are effective at indicating hot spots in the home, including:

  • circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement

  • overloaded and undersized circuits

  • overheated electrical equipment and components

  • electrical faults before they cause a fire
