Infrared Scan Inspection

Our inspectors conduct a comprehensive infrared scan during the home inspection, focusing on common areas to detect moisture, air leakage, and electrical hotspots. This helps identify any potential issues that may need attention.

For example, an inspector will run hot water in an upstairs bathroom and then go below the bathroom and scan the drywall.

Infrared technology can help an inspector identify:

  • Leaking Air Ducts
  • Electrical Hotspots on the Main Panel and other areas of the house
  • Active moisture leaks
  • Potential Insulation issues

What an Infrared Scan Reveals

A residential home inspection infrared scan is a powerful tool used to uncover hidden issues within a property that may not be visible to the naked eye. This non-invasive technique employs infrared cameras to detect temperature variations on surfaces, revealing problems such as insulation deficiencies, moisture intrusion, electrical hotspots, and air leaks. By identifying these thermal anomalies, an infrared scan can pinpoint areas where energy is being lost, highlight potential water damage behind walls or under floors, and identify overloaded circuits or faulty wiring that could pose fire hazards. This advanced diagnostic method enhances the accuracy of home inspections, providing homeowners and buyers with a comprehensive understanding of the property’s condition and helping them make informed decisions about necessary repairs or improvements.

I am extremely pleased with the property inspection I recently received. Very through, very professional, and the report was prepared and delivered to my agent and me overnight! Thank you, Elite Group!

Got David and he was amazing. He explained everything and answered any questions we had. We bought the elite package. Only bummed that the swabs from the mold he found were going to be an additional charge to send them to the lab. But he did find a leak that you could not have seen to the naked eye due to recent paint job. I would definitely use them again.

I’ve had the great opportunity to work with Philip Reams on two inspections and he has been excellent to work with each time. He is prompt, professional and did a very thorough job. He’s very knowledgeable and took time to answer all our questions. He put everyone at ease about the inspection and made the overall experience great.

Todd Smith of Elite Group Property Inspections inspected a property in Fullerton for us. He was very thorough and spent a lot of time on the phone with us after the inspection, as we were unable to be at the actual inspection. We would most definitely hire him again.
