Dana Home Inspections is currently one of a few companies in Georgia that provide infrared thermography technology with every home inspection at no additional cost. This state of the art technology utilizes an infrared imaging camera that can “see” and “measure” the invisible heat energy that is emitted by the building components and can produce thermal images (called thermograms) that can identify and document a wide variety of problems that may not be visible to the naked eye during a home inspection (watch our IR video). Water intrusion, moisture problems, heat loss, air infiltration, missing or damaged insulation and electrical overheating all produce different heat (temperature) signatures that can be identified in the thermal images.
